KOLKATA: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday continued her tour of the metropolis, visiting a number of places for the second consecutive day and urging people to adhere to lockdown norms, even if that meant facing certain difficulties.

Banerjee went to Khidderpore, Park Circus and Ballygunje areas in the city, addressing residents on a loudhailer.

"Please follow the lockdown norms and strictly practise social distancing...even if you face certain difficulties.

Don't hide conditions like fever or symptoms of common cold," she said from inside her car.
