Haryana seals border

The Haryana government decided to seal the routes again. A huge traffic jam was there on Friday morning on the Delhi-Gurugram route. The cases are rising because of entry from Delhi.

Haryana’s home minister Anil Vij had on Thursday said that the number of Covid-19 cases in the state was rising. This is due to the free movement of people from the national capital.

Also, People in large numbers gathered at the Delhi-Gurugram border. Police checked passes and identity cards of people traveling through the Delhi-Gurugram border.

Bhim Singh, a sub-inspector of police, said according to ANI “No new guidelines have come yet. We are following the Lockdown 4 guidelines,”

According to top state government officials,

those who don’t have e-movement passes and don’t fall in the approved category of essential service providers as per the directions of the Union ministry of home affairs (MHA) will not be allowed to commute from Delhi to Haryana.

“Following relaxations in lockdown 4.0, the to and fro movement of people from Delhi to Haryana had increased. There is a possibility that the authorities in the NCR districts have lowered their guard and are allowing unhindered access,’’ an official had said on Thursday.

The state government gave an undertaking before Delhi High Court on May 14. This was for the movement of people from Delhi to Haryana. The movement will be there only with e-passes.

People in essential services will be provided with movement passes. Also, These include medical professionals.

The state government had informed HC that each e-pass is valid for the entire duration of the lockdown. And can be used for multiple visits.

The state government had taken a stand before the court that since about 56% of the coronavirus cases in the national capital region (NCR) districts—Gurugram, Faridabad, Jhajjar and Sonepat — had Delhi links.
