She was speaking at a press conference here on Wednesday, March 24. She questioned who permitted DC to arrest one who did not wear a mask. There is a law which has to it which has to take its own course, she said. Corporation has fined big establishments with Rs 1000 fine, while for small establishments between Rs 4000 and Rs 5000. This a covid lobby, she alleged.

She expressed her anguish that the DC had permitted to two-day river festival where there were people in 1000s assembled yet he felt no covid would spread there. It is not for officers to behave haughtily, she said.
