As per news report of NDTV, Arvind Kejriwal's remarks come a day after his government said that the city would not be put under another lockdown, adding that a third wave of COVID-19 had already peaked out. "Since cases are rising in Delhi, we are sending a general proposal to the Central government so that, if required, the Delhi government can shut for a few days those markets where social distancing norms are not being followed and they are on the verge of becoming local COVID-19 hotspots," Kejriwal said in an online media briefing today.
