Couple days earlier, Kerala Government issued orders giving permission for interstate travel during lockdown but only for those who have valid documents on three grounds.
Yesterday Union Home Ministry wrote to Kerala government, expressing their concerns over modified guidelines regarding the lockdown issued by the state. Punya Salila Srivastava of Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said Kerala has allowed some activities that are violating the ministry’s instructions issued under Disaster Management Act.
In reply to the letter over modified lockdown guidelines, Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan said there has been no confrontation between the state government and Central government. He stated Kerala is following directions issued by Centre. Barber shops will not be opened and restaurants will only provide online delivery.
CM Pinarayi Vijayan said a decision was taken earlier to open barber shops during the lockdown, but many experts pointed out against it. So, the Kerala Government is withdrawing the decision.
