kv Rajendra Mangaluru : Traders from Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts have withdrawn their decision to protest against the weekend curfew.

On Friday, merchants in the coastal districts had decided to open their shops on Saturday and Sunday, opposing the government’s weekend curfew order. However, DC K V Rajendra succeeded in convincing the members of Karavali Textile, Readymade and Footwear Dealers’ Association to drop their plans of opening shops during the curfew.

The DC said that the positivity rate in the district is expected to reduce further in the next one week. “Many of the people’s representatives in the district are also in favour of withdrawing the weekend curfew,” he added.

Social welfare and backward classes’ welfare minister Kota Shrinivas Poojari and Mangaluru City South MLA D Vedavyas Kamath had met chief minister Basavaraj Bommai on Friday, and demanded that the weekend curfew in Dakshina Kannada be withdrawn.
