In a major development, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa has announced a statewide curfew from 9 pm on Tuesday night, April 27 till the next 14 days. The government has relaxed the restrictions from 6 am to 10 am in the morning so as to allow citizens to procure their essentials.
Yediyurappa also announced a complete ban on garment factories on the ground that garment workers are cramped together in these places. However, construction activities, essential services and take-away parcels, including liquor, are allowed statewide.
