“We appeal to public passenger vehicles to refrain from the habit of charging exorbitant transport fares. We also call upon public vigilance so we can check possible terrorist activities among us.
The anxiety and uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are still with us. We have tested how devastating these viruses can be. We, therefore, would like to earnestly appeal to you to take responsibility for your health and neighbor”
The Inter-Religious Council informed the public on how places of worship have been opened up as vaccination centers to ensure ease of vaccination as close to the people as possible.
