Do’s and don’ts include avoid eating at public places, or clicking picture while having foods

A Delhi BJP office bearer present in one of the meeting told this newspaper that the Dr Harsh Vardhan advised everyone present in the meeting to take precaution of highest order to avoid any embracement to the party or the Prime Minister. “Dr Harsh Vardhan asked everyone to avoid food at restaurants and places frequented by people, do not click selfies while having food or allow any one to click picture,” said a Delhi BJP office bearer present in the meeting of office bearers of party’s two districts falling under Chandni Chowk constituency.

Sources also claimed that workers suffering from diabetes are also told not to join the fast called by the Prime Minister.

“Person suffering from diabetes need to eat something at regular interval, so workers having diabetes are advise not to join the fast at health ground,” he added.
