Khattar announced that public transport will resume in the state on an “experimental basis” from Friday, with a limited number of buses plying on select routes.
He also said as the Centre has now revised guidelines pertaining to activities in red, green and orange zone, the state government will formulate district-specific policy to boost economic activities.
“We will run a few buses on Panchkula, Ambala, Sirsa, Mahendragarh, Narnaul routes,” he told a press conference through video conferencing on Wednesday evening.
On the revised lockdown guidelines pertaining to zones, he said, “Earlier, a district could not be declared green zone until it registers zero case for 21 days.
Now, we will have to go ahead taking into account what is the situation in a particular district.
“We have resumed many activities in all the 16 districts (which have reported comparatively lower number of cases) and 24 lakh passes have been issued to people engaged in industrial and other services,” he said.
