New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday decided to seal their borders for a week in the wake of rising coronavirus cases in the city.

Besides, the Chief Minister also sought suggestions from people by Friday to reopen the same.

The announcement came hours after Haryana state government opened Delhi-Gurgao border for easy movement of people. The state government decided in line with the new lockdown guidelines of the Indian government announced on Saturday.

But Kejriwal reversed the decision and put thousands of commuters who were coming to capital for their work.

However, Indian government offices resumed their work on Monday.

The Chief Minister also expressed apprehensions that people from other states will come to Delhi to avail “best health services” amid the ongoing Covid-19 crisis once borders are reopened and that will lead to a shortage of beds for those living in the national capital.
