On Tuesday, April 13, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut stated that travel to the state of Maharashtra from other states is one of the major reason behind the spike in cases of coronavirus.

According to reports, he further added that the MVA government in the state has been taking several measures to curb the instances of coronavirus, however, other states in return have failed to take adequate steps. Raut pointed to the crowding at the Kumbh Mela in Haridwar and the participation of lakhs in poll rallies in West Bengal.

“Compared to those states, more measures have been taken by the state and rules are followed by the people in Maharashtra,” he said. “The government and administration are trying to control the situation here and Maharashtra’s health-care system is the best in the country. CM Uddhav Thackeray has put restrictions even on Gudi Padwa celebrations. Other states should put some restrictions for a month or two.” Furthermore, the Shiv Sena leader concluded that the behaviour of other states was an invitation to a national lockdown.

On the other hand, earlier on March 4, Raut had declared that the party will not be contesting the upcoming assembly election in West Bengal. Moreover, he also stated that the party would be extending its support to the Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo Mamata Banerjee who happens to be the Chief Minister in West Bengal. Taking it to Twitter, Sanjay Raut made the announcement and said that the decision was taken following discussions with party president and Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
