It is observed that our government slackens certain rules for the convenience of the common people despite the fact that the number of infected persons in COVID-19 cases keeps increasing simultaneously the death toll too. Nevertheless there are still many 'Dos' and 'Don'ts' . If we take into account the 'Don'ts, one rule that we ordinary people think worthwhile to obey is the social distancing. But still many people seem to ignore it and flout the rules only to be caught (caned) by the police. Social distancing, needless to say, helps in preventing the coronavirus from spreading. This is the reason, perhaps why people should obey it in letter and spirit. But in the news aired in the electronic channels, we view certain ministers flouting social distancing. Recently, Water Resource Development Minister Keshab Mahanta, while going to the embankment repairing site was seen to have flouted the rule. Likewise, Pramila Rani Brahma was seen visiting Bihpuria who also did show scanty respect to the social distancing. As far as we know lawmakers should not be lawbreakers. Ministers should be the role model to exemplify so that all the rank and file can emulate their examples. We ought to remember, this is dreaded calamity we must have to fight unitedly, with concerted efforts.
