Doordarshan Shillong has had to issue a public clarification once again to scotch a rumour that the city will undergo a lockdown on September 21 and 22.
The story has its origins in July when the state capital underwent a two-day lockdown following a spike in Covid-19 cases.
This prompted DD Shillong to issue a notice on their social media handles and this post has since been misused at least twice to fool the public into thinking that there will be another lockdown.
The Chief Minister’s Office also made it clear that there will be no new lockdown.
“Request citizens to refrain from forwarding such false information and to only rely on official sources pertaining to government orders and notifications,” the CMO said on social media.
