Norms of social distancing were allegedly flouted at a protest organised by Congress MLA Vinay Jaiswal in the district here.
Jaiswal was staging a protest to demand the reinstatement of 32 workers of a company.
Jaiswal said, “Based on a fictitious probe, the workers were sacked by South Eastern Coalfields Ltd. during previous BJP government in the state.”
In a video of the incident, Jaiswal could be seen surrounded by nearly a dozen protesters with some of them seen without masks. They raised slogans and held placards against the sacking of workers amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
