Mumbai: BMC stops exhibition at 5-star lodge about Covid-19 curbs

Pursuing issues from the Federation of Retail Traders Welfare Association (FRTWA), an exhibition organised at a five-star resort in western suburbs was stopped by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Sunday afternoon in watch of the ongoing Covid-19 limits.

The affiliation mentioned while on weekends, non-vital shops are not permitted to stay open, exhibitions in star lodges on weekends violate the state government’s policies.

According to the FRTWA, an exhibition named ‘Indian Wedding ceremony Expo’ was organised on Sunday among 10 am and 8 pm. The FRTWA also tweeted about the exact same to the BMC.

In the reply to the tweet, the BMC reported: “The spot was inspected by our workforce and stopped immediately further motion is being initiated from the organisers and resort administration.”

Vishwas Mote, assistant municipal commissioner of the BMC’s K west ward, verified the action. Viren Shah, president of the FRTWA, stated: “This is a gross violation of the ‘Break the Chain’ buy of Maharashtra government. Maharashtra falls under Degree-3 constraints whereby non-critical retailers are permitted to stay open up only till 4 pm on weekdays.”
