Former India opener and BJP MP Gautam Gambhir has hit out at the people of Delhi for making long queues outside alcohol shops without thinking about theirs and others lives amidst the India lockdown due to coronavirus. Recently, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that the Delhi government will implement all lockdown relaxations prescribed by the home ministry, during a press conference.
Arvind Kejriwal had also said that relaxation on restrictions will be reversed in areas where people are found violating safety guidelines. Following the announcement by Arvind Kejriwal, people in Delhi took to the streets on Monday morning to buy liquor, without following norms of social distancing.
The former opening batsman took to Twitter and posted a couple of photos from outside a Delhi liquor shop where neither the 5-people norm was being followed nor social distancing being practised amidst the India lockdown due to coronavirus. Gautam Gambhir wrote a message in Hindi where he said that the images are embarrassing that alcohol has become more necessary for Delhi than life.
