Before the lockdown was announced, the Taj Mahal and other Indian monuments had already been closed. Since March, tourists from the world over have been deprived of viewing the Taj Mahal.

Keeping that in mind, Agra Mayor and long-term BJP leader Naveen Jain commented on the central and state governments, demanding to know the reason why the Taj Mahal was still closed when the government has already started trains and domestic flights.

The Mayor said that the Taj Mahal should be opened immediately for tourists keeping the social distancing guidelines in mind. He said that it has already been 75 days since the Taj and other Agra monuments were closed and the 4 lakh people who are directly linked to the tourist industry as guides, hotel/restaurant employees, emporiums and photographers are facing difficult days. "It is imperative that the gates of the Taj Mahal be opened immediately," he says.

Agra Tourist Welfare Chamber Secretary Vishal Sharma said that since March 17, the Taj Mahal has been closed for tourists whereas the Rajasthan government has already allowed entrance in all state government-managed monuments.
