Night curfew in Assam to be lifted: CM Himanta Biswa Sarma


Guwahati: The Assam Government on Monday announced that from February 15 all coronavirus-induced restrictions, including the night curfew, will be withdrawn across the state from February 15 owing to a steady decline in COVID-19 cases.

While addressing the media at Janata Bhawan, Assam Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma said that there will be no curfew in Assam from February 15th and all COVID-19 restrictions are hereby withdrawn.

CM Sarma also said, “I appeal to all students who appear in Class 10th and Class 12th examinations to take COVID-19 vaccines.”

This comes a day after CM Sarma said that all coronavirus-induced restrictions will be lifted across the state if the COVID-19 situation does not deteriorate.

“If COVID cases do not surge, we will withdraw all COVID-related restrictions from February 15. Night curfew will be withdrawn, schools and colleges will also reopen. People will be allowed to celebrate Bihu as well,” added CM Sarma.
