The Malabar Chamber of Commerce (MCC) on Saturday alleged that a section of government officials had been portraying merchants as being primarily responsible for the spread of COVID-19.
In a statement issued here, MCC functionaries claimed that the scary situation was caused by reckless organisers of various events.
MCC president K.V. Haseeb Ahammed said liquor outlets had been witnessing huge turnout of customers.
