So I’m feeling very buoyed by that and I do think that we will be up and running fast then earlier I thought and the faster the better because we need to get back into circulation.”
Some people nonetheless really feel that’s it moderately a bit too quickly given the state of affairs and the rising variety of Covid circumstances in some cities. However, Bhatt doesn’t agree with this thought course of.

We can’t give freedom to operate some places and not to others. So in that way I don’t think it’s pretty soon in fact it has rather been late,” he concludes.
