The Vice President, Shri Bhairon Singh Shekhawat releasing a novel written by former Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh Shri Shanta Kumar, in New Delhi on March 23, 2006.

Senior BJP leader and former Chief Minister Shanta Kumar, who is in home quarantine these days, yesterday appealed to leaders of political parties to avoid crowding and stay away from public gatherings.

Shanta Kumar, in a press statement, said he had gone through media reports that a large number of people were gathering for public meetings of political parties across the state without following social distancing norms, which was a matter of concern.

He urged the leaders to follow the guidelines. He said the top priority of the government at this point should be to control the pandemic.
