Government should take care of the poor: Supreme Court

The order also said- “Central and state governments should consider banning mass celebrations and super spreader events. In view of the intensity of the second wave, they may also consider a lockdown in the public interest.” The court also said that arrangements should be made to protect the weaker sections during the lockdown.
