Vadodra (Gujarat) [India], April 11 (ANI): Gujarat's Vadodra district administration has come up with a unique punishment for those flouting COVID-19 norms in which the rule-enforcement team members clap for the violators and make them wear flower garlands in public.
"I was not wearing the mask because I was having an ice cream. It was very embarrassing and will not repeat the mistake again," Kailash, a rule-violator, said.
"Our enforcement team, with the help of Vadodra police and Vadodra Municipal Corporation, are spreading awareness among the public by putting them to shame using this method," Hemat Kisarkar, the supervisor, said.
He added they are getting good results as many who get caught realise their mistake after they clap for them and make them wear a flower garland.
Gujarat currently has as many as 22,692 active cases. (ANI)
