As Maharashtra continues to be India’s hot-bed of COVID-19 outbreak it has tougher challenges in hand. The state has accounted for over 50,000 cases and 1,600 deaths topping the unfortunate chart. While lockdown restrictions for the entire country look to be there Maharashtra CM gave a hint of extension.
Chief Minister (CM) Uddhav Thackeray said that “ it was wrong to impose the lockdown suddenly and now it cannot be lifted all at once“. Since the monsoon is lined up the CM said that there is a need to be extra cautious. The state home minister Anil Deshmukh also objected to the center’s decision to resume domestic flights from Monday.
Earlier the state has also objected to UGC’s decision to conduct college exams in July. The state said that it can’t conducted even final year’s students’ exams. Given the situation of the state it is predicted that the state alone would have some lakh cases in the time to come.
Meanwhile, the state says that it has not yet received its due GST amount. The Centres share of train ticket cost (for facilitating transportation of migrant labourers to their native places) is yet to be received said the CMO.
