In the midst of the ongoing lockdown in the state due to Corona, the Kerala High Court has taken a stern stance that it cannot be allowed to roam during the lockdown, even if they have gone out to share food. The High Court made this remark during a hearing through video conferencing on Monday, seeking permission to distribute food to the needy in Kollam in Nedumpana district.
During the hearing, the High Court said that if something like this needs to be done, the petitioners can help the state government. In any case, you have to follow the advisory of the government. No one should do anything independently, otherwise every restaurant will open from tomorrow.
The petitioner had said in the petition that the community kitchens are not able to provide food to the people. When he asked for permission to work with the government, the district collector of Kollam did not give permission. Additional Advocate Ranjit Thampan, appearing for the Collector, said that no permission was sought from the petitioner.
