With Unlock 1.0, people have started flooding the street. While many restrictions have been lifted, it is still advised that people should step out of the house only when it is needed. Also, all health officials, government and police have been creating awareness about the importance of wearing masks and washing hands. On Tuesday, Nagpur Police twitter handle shared an interesting meme to urge people to wear masks while visiting the shops for grocery shopping and buying other things. They used a Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah meme to convey their message.
In the photo, actor Dilip Joshi who plays the role of Jethalal and owns Gada Electronics is seen wearing a mask. The tweet read, “Whether you are going to Gokul Dham society or Gada electronics, please wear a Mask wherever you go.”
