Allahabad High Court is continuously monitoring the situation of COVID-19 in the State.
Earlier the Court has issued several directions for preventing the spread of the virus.
The PIL was again lastly listed in 21.10.2020. Again the court has stressed upon 100% masking to stop second wave of virus.
Surveillance on Every Road to Stop COVID-19
Allahabad High Court observed that further step is required to be taken to curb the second wave of Covid-19.
So if it at all comes then only way to succeed is to wear masks. Which is required to be worn by one and all.
In this context, it would be in the fitness of things that every road should have constant surveillance of the police from at least 07:00 AM to 10:00 PM.
The roads which are busy and have a length of 2 km or more, a team of police personnel may be deployed and if it is a 2 km road which is not all that crowded then a minimum 2 police personnel must be deployed so that the constant vigil be kept.
This much is sure that surveillance on every road/ lane/ bye-lane and Gali has to be maintained.
Further, the Task Force should be empowered to stop people and ask them to wear masks.
If any individual misbehaves with the Task Force inappropriately then the Task Force would have enough powers to take appropriate action against that individual.
This plan will be implemented in the cities of Prayagraj, Kanpur, Varanasi, Agra and Lucknow and thereafter it may be followed in other districts of the State of U.P.
