It’s been more than a month of the lockdown in India over the COVID-19 pandemic. While the number of cases and deaths rising daily has been a concern, the manner in which the lockdown rules have been flouted in parts of the country has also been alarming. Not just leaders across political parties, even celebrities from the film industry have expressed their displeasure over some of the incidents.
In the latest instance, the crowd at one of the markets in Mumbai infuriated Soni Razdan. As a video of a big crowd at a vegetable and fruit market in Mumbra surfaced on Twitter, the actor termed it ‘unbelievable’ and wondered where the police was.
Where are the cops ? Unbelievable !— Soni Razdan (@Soni_Razdan) April 25, 2020
The Raazi star had earlier tweeted to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray when the shops were closed in Mumbai’s Juhu.
This is serious as we cannot afford to crowd shops at all. There will be riots if this continues. We cannot even buy bread https://t.co/K12xdoAAGs— Soni Razdan (@Soni_Razdan) April 14, 2020
That was not the only complaint, even Dolly Bindra expressed her concern over overpriced vegetables in Goregoan area of Mumbai. The actor claimed vegetables were sold for Rs 100/kg. The former Bigg Boss star also reacted to BJP MLA Ashish Shelar’s video of a ‘reasonable vegetable van’, tagging Shiv Sena’s official handles, urging them to look into the matter and provide a solution for her grievance.
Here are the post:
