Ignoring all lockdown norms, citizens of Dimapur and Kohima thronged markets on Saturday, particularly in a last minute shopping for Mother’s Day, which is to be celebrated on May 10.

The main shopping areas in Dimapur chock-a-block as shoppers in hundreds were seen all over the market, rubbing shoulder to shoulder, in complete disregard of the mandatory social distancing guideline.

However, it was a huge sigh of relief for many shop owners as they could do brisk business after almost six week of loss due to the lockdown. 

A shop owner told this Reporter that business was good after a long time. Most of the items were for Mother’s Day gifts and hampers.

In Kohima too, people in hundreds were seen in market areas to buy essential items and, mainly to shop for Mother’s Day. 

DC Kohima on May 7 issued an order allowing all shops to open in Kohima in view of the Mother’s Day to be celebrated on May 10.
