When the in the wake of Covid-19 pandemic was first an­nounced from March 24, there were many instances of police being harsh while implementing the rules. There were many instances of clashes be­tween the police and the public. How­ever, during 3.0 when major relaxations have been announced to enable public mobility, one observes a lot of indiscipline and chaos. Since May 4, the social distancing norms seem to have gone for a toss; haphazard parking and reckless driving seem to be the new normal. The administration and police should be strict while enforcing public discipline and order, avoiding brute misuse of power.
