Lockdown to be imposed in Maharashtra amid surging COVID-19 cases? Here's what CM Uddhav Thackeray said
Maharashtra has been witnessing a surge in coronavirus cases and the Shiv Sena on Tuesday called it a matter of concern, adding that the opposition in the state should talk carefully about the COVID-19 crisis. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had on February 21(Sunday) asked people to follow "COVID-appropriate" behaviour and safety norms, and said he would observe the situation for a week to 15 days and then decide whether to impose another lockdown.
An editorial in the Shiv Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' on Tuesday said after Thackeray's comments, BJP leader Pravin Darekar remarked that the government should not create an atmosphere of terror and not act like a tyrant regime.
