After the weekend curfew, such a sight was seen in the open markets in the city on Monday. People bought essential items fiercely.
There was jam in many markets. According to Kovid experts, it is possible for Kovid to return due to social distance and non-adherence to masks. Kanak Mandi opened on Monday along with the biggest grain market warehouse of Jammu and Kashmir. After two days of bandh, food grains were supplied from warehouses to various districts of the state, but there was crowd.
Police had to send one-way vehicles by fencing at Bikram Chowk, while long queues were formed due to vehicles coming from Asia Chowk as well. Similarly, crowds of local buyers reached Kanak Mandi, there was a situation of jam due to parking of random vehicles in the market.
