Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Saturday said that if COVID-19 preventive measures are not followed as directed by the government then bans and prohibition orders will be strictly implemented.
CM Vijayan said, ” Places of worship are required to follow the directives of the government or they too will be shut down.”
“These proposals have been accepted by the majority of the population and various religious leaders have expressed their full support. Meanwhile, there have been cases of mass gatherings in some of the places of worship. The government has once again requested that people avoid such events,” he said.
He added that strict legal action will be taken against those who put the state in danger.
