Khargone:  The Madhya Pradesh government has allotted ₹ one crore for providing relief to the people affected by the recent communal violence in Madhya Pradesh’s Khargone city. The financial assistance will be provided as per a survey conducted by the district administration, an official said today.

Continuing with the practice, the Khargone administration this morning relaxed curfew, which was imposed in the city on Sunday night following violence during Ram Navami celebrations, for four hours, they said.

Since April 14, the local administration has been relaxing the curfew every day for four hours. “The administration had conducted a survey and sent a report to the state government, which has allotted ₹ one crore,” Khargone district collector Anugraha P told news agency PTI.

Financial help will be provided promptly to the affected persons and vendors whose homes, stores, automobiles, and other property were damaged as a result of the violence, based on the results of this survey.

People ventured out to buy milk, veggies, supplies, and medicines today because the curfew was relaxed between 8 a.m. and noon in Khargone city.

As per the government order, only the stores selling milk, vegetables and medicines are allowed to remain open during the relaxation of curfew. People can purchase essential items from the shops in their neighbourhood.

However, petrol pumps will remain closed and the sale of kerosene will remain suspended at the fair price shops under the Public Distribution System (PDS), the order said.
