Corona Lockdown: Union Ministers Troop Back To Office

New Delhi: A day before the 21-day countrywide lockdown is set to end, some Union ministers and government staff resumed office on Monday.

The Sports Authority of India (SAI) was one such government department where senior officials and other essential staff resumed operations after more than a fortnight of working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, reported news agency PTI.

Union Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju on Monday visited SAI’s headquarters in New Delhi wearing a mask and sanitised his hands before entering the premises.

“The ministry has started its office with minimum staff because work has to go on. We are ensuring strict compliance of rules like social distancing, wearing masks and temperature checks,” PTI quoted Rijiju as saying.

Earlier on Saturday, the Centre had told all ministers to resume office along with joint secretary-level officials and one-third of essential staff from Monday.
