After imposing complete shutdown for two weeks in Bengaluru urban and rural areas, the Karnatka government on Tuesday decided to bring back unlock 2 guidelines to the state.
Issued a notification, the state government said there will be only night curfew and Sunday lockdown in Bengaluru and other places.
Though lockdown will be lifted from 5 AM on Wednesday across the state, night curfew will continue daily from 9 PM to 5 AM to restrict movement of people and vehicles. Total lockdown on Sundays will also continue on July 26 and August 2, state Chief Secretary TM Vijaya Bhaskar said in the order.
The move to unlock Bengaluru and four other districts — Dakshina Kannada, Dharwad, Kalaburagi and Kodagu, which has been under lockdown since March 14 night, came after Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa said lockdown is not the solution, and it would not be re-imposed across the state.
