|Maharashtra Lockdown: Disagreement among cabinet ministers over lockdown|
Mumbai: A lockdown has been imposed under Break the Chain to prevent corona infection. The lockdown ends on June 1, so state cabinet meetings are being held today to decide whether the restrictions will be lifted or maintained. However, differences of opinion among some of the ministers in the state cabinet have come to the fore over the stringent restrictions currently in force.
The state cabinet will discuss in the next few days whether the current stringent regulations under the Break the Chain will be implemented till June 1, as the number of patients in some districts of the state is increasing and the death rate is also on the rise. Restrictions are in place in districts where the number of patients is increasing and consideration will be given to bring some relaxation in the districts where the number of patients is low.
Discussions will also be held on the implementation of the current strict restrictions in all parts of the state. Different views of some of the ministers in the state cabinet are coming to the fore regarding the current strict restriction regulations.
State Health Minister Rajesh Tope told News18 Lokmat that the people are demanding some relaxation of the existing restrictions in the state.
In fact, in some districts of Maharashtra, where the number of patients is declining, there is a demand for relaxation in areas where the number of patients is less. Some of the ministers in the state are also positive about this, which will be discussed in the cabinet meeting today and the final decision will be taken by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
On the other hand, State Minister for Relief and Rehabilitation Vijay Vadettiwar said, "It is a fact that the number of patients is increasing in some districts of the state but not in all the talukas in these districts." As a result, the number of patients is increasing in some talukas, or in areas where the number of patients is higher in large cities, containment zones should be created.
Strict restrictions should not be enforced in the entire state ', said News18 while talking to Lokmat. He also said that the Chief Minister would announce the final decision after discussing the matter with all the co-operative ministers in the state cabinet.
On the other hand, Mumbai's Guardian Minister Aslam Sheikh has said that "small shopkeepers will be considered for opening some shops in the near future due to the low number of patients in Mumbai".
There is a difference of opinion as to whether the ministers in the cabinet should implement the strict restriction rules or not.
