The number of COVID-19 cases and the rate of its spread is nowhere comparable between Andhra Pradesh and Tamilnadu. Tamil Nadu is way ahead of Andhra Pradesh in every aspect but the Tamilnadu people are doing some over action across the border.
To tackle the spread of coronavirus and strictly impose lockdown measures, the Tamil Nadu government has ordered to built 7-ft walls at the state border with Andhra which is a very insensible decision as the people in the border who are mostly the daily wage workers are suffering a lot with this decision.
The two walls have been raised at two key entry and exit points on the Chittoor-Ponni-Chennai road and Chittoor-Gudiyatham road in Chittoor district. Already the transportation has been suspended in that border and only essential goods have been allowed to date.
But no one is aware of the reason for building these walls in the border area and this will only cause inconvenience for the people who haven’t felt there was a border between these two states to date.
The daily wage labours and the people whose houses share the border are facing difficulties with this decision taken by the Tamil Nadu officials and some people are demanding an explanation for this act.
