On Monday, December 13, the Bombay High Court stated that Maharashtra was “one of the pioneers” in facing the problems that developed owing to the coronavirus pandemic, reported news agency, PTI.

According to the report, the HC whilst mentioning the second wave of COVID-19 remarked that hopefully next year would be a new beginning, hoping that citizens will not see a repeat of April 2021. This comment was made by a bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice M S Karnik, whilst disposing PILs filed last year.

These PILs sought relief from the judiciary on issues regarding the Maharashtra government’s steps, distribution of resources regarding the pandemic. After petitioners sought permission to withdraw the pleas, the HC disposed of the PILs.

The petitioners wanted to do so because the majority of the reliefs they wanted had been accorded or that the government had acted on the orders passed by the judiciary. The HC mentioned that the dark days shouldn’t be forgotten.

The judiciary added that one mustn’t let their guard down. It said, “We have no hesitation in saying that Maharashtra was one of the pioneers in tackling COVID-19.” Further, the court mentioned that the state and centre should continue prioritizing vaccines, needed medical assistance.

These according to them should be done for senior citizens, those with disabilities, co-morbidities to see to it that citizens are safe. The judiciary then noted that whilst in 2020 nobody knew anything about COVID-19, in April 2021, one did. Adding that one shouldn’t let their guard down and saw an arduous time.
