Reacting to displeasure among the business community against the night curfew he said,the measure has been taken in the interest of public health. People would have to strictly follow Covid norms at tourist spots.

The BJP State Executive Committee meeting to be held in Hubballi would discuss issues related to party organisation and other developments.
