As a precautionary measure, the government is considering closing schools for students up to middle classes until April 30, he added.
He said wearing masks, following social distancing norms, sanitisation of public places and gathering restrictions will be strictly enforced.
While all this strictness will be imposed, the normal life too has to go on, he said.
“There is no need to panic as was seen in March-April last year at the outbreak of the pandemic. The situation is under control. We have stepped up the vaccination drive. We are taking all necessary steps to check further spread of the virus , “said Khattar.
Asked to comment on the ongoing wheat procurement, he said the process is going on smoothly, though “arhtiyas” (commission agents) have gone on a strike at a few places.
The commission agents are protesting the government’s decision of direct payment to farmers.
Payment is being directly credited into farmers’ accounts within 72 hours and if there is a delay beyond this period, then farmers will be paid 9 per cent interest.
