"I request the house owners to not take rent from their tenants who are poor or are daily wage labourers," he said while adding that "electricity and water will not be disconnected even if people are not able to pay their bills."
While giving assurance to people who have been living here, the Chief Minister said, "The government will ensure that everyone gets food, drinking water and medicine no matter where he or she is from."
He said, "The officials need to take care of the daily and economic needs of workers from other states so that they do not feel the need to flee to their respective states.
