Mangaluru, May 2: Though the Karnataka government on Saturday, May 1 relaxed the lockdown, permitting grocery shops and APMCs to function from 6 am to 12 noon, the police officials in the city seemed to be unaware of the government order.

On Sunday, May 2, police personnel were seen asking grocery shop owners and pushcart vendors to close down their business after 10 am.

The police officials who came in a vehicle asked vegetable vendors near Car street to shut take away their carts and stop selling after 10 am. Moreover, as there were no customers, pushcart vendors seemed disappointed.

Though there is provision to keep open the grocery shops till noon, several shops downed their shutters at around 10 am, probably as they were not aware of the new guidelines. In some places, however, grocery shop owners continued to remain open till noon.

    Why can't elected public servants such as MLAs & MPs take up the issue with Police on a real time basis and ensure public is not put to inconvenience. Looks like Yatha Praja tatha Raja. Idiots have elected idiots.

    The government changes order. Police department doesn't bother to collect the new order. Common man is put in trouble. Every time the police takes common man to task. The rich and influential people get away. Hope our police commissioner will keep all police informed of changes on time. God bless. Karnataka

    Joke is that there are no vendors allowed in front of Central Market by the police and corporation officials to maintain covid protocol. But these vendors go down to Car street or Bhavanthi street which is crowded and there is no covid protocol maintained, almost super spreader.

    For a person who survives on hands to mouth, he can go to any place to earn money. Have some compassion for the street vendors.

    Some cops probably do not read newspapers.

    The police can only show their power against the weak Aam Aadmi? Can they lock any powerful for violating rules. Shame on them.
