Rajkot: Various trade associations, suffering huge losses due to the imposition of the night curfew, have decided to unite and come under one umbrella and press for relaxation in the Covid-19 restrictions. They have initiated efforts to come up with a common draft to be submitted to the government authorities. According to new notification the night curfew is imposed in Rajkot city from 10pm to 6am.
The food and beverages association, event management association, catering association, Mandap service and decoration association are among the trade bodies that are uniting under one banner. On Saturday, Rajkot recorded 121 new Covid-19 cases.
“We have suffered huge losses in the last one year and now we are not in a position to bear more brunt. Our peak business hours are 9pm to 12am and if this night curfew continues many of us will have to wind up the businesses,” said Shekhar Mehta, president of Rajkot food and beverage association.
