Ajit Pawar also said that “Unfortunately, in rural areas, some people are becoming lax. They are not scared of Coronavirus. They don’t use masks, don’t follow physical distancing, and they have assumed that everything (Covid-19 pandemic) is over. This has led to a rise in infections.”


Pawar added to his statement that the Centre has already cautioned all the states, citing that Maharashtra and Kerala continuously reporting the highest number of Covid-19 cases. Our honourable CM has also appealed to state citizens from time to time, but some people politicize the issue and resort to celebrating festivals. However, he appealed that all these should stop. People should not put the government and other concerned administrations in a situation where everything is to be closed if the situation gets worse.

When asked about the reopening of schools and institutions, he said that discussions are being held with the concerned experts and a decision will be taken soon. “There are two opinions. Some say schools should open after Diwali, while others say they should be reopened in places where the Covid-19 positivity rate is zero. The chief minister, however, will take the final call,” he said.
