Citizens without newspaper for a week

New Delhi, Mar 29: Notwithstanding the print media out of the ongoing nationwide lockdown, newspapers did not reach homes in many parts of the country, including Delhi, since March 24.

Delhi Police Commissioner S N Shrivastava has asked the beat officers to ensure that no newspaper vendor or distributor is stopped from doing their duties.

Incidentally, the World Health Organisation (WHO) had earlier assured that there is no fear of contamination of Corona Virus from newspapers.

Reports said newspapers were also not available in Mumbai, Kolkata and many other places of the country after March 23, a day after the nationwide ‘Janata Curfew’ announced by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on March 19. (UNI)
