Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Vinay Sahasrabuddhe has written to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray expressing displeasure over the re-imposition of lockdown in some municipal corporations. 

In a letter to the Maharashtra Chief Minister, Sahasrabuddhe criticised the re-imposition of lockdown in some parts of the state and said that the same has created confusion among the administration. 

In view of the rising coronavirus cases, the lockdown was re-imposed in some part of Maharashtra including Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) after the state government announced ‘Mission Begin Again’. This has caused confusion at various levels of administration, the BJP MP said. 

Sahasrabuddhe, who is the member of Rajya Sabha representing Maharashtra, labelled the decision of Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government to re-impose lockdown as “arbitrary and safe play” and suggested Thackeray take measures to revive economy amid the coronavirus outbreak. 

The media reports quoted him as saying that the lockdown was extended in municipal corporations of the Pune and MMR which includes Kalyan-Dombivali, Mira-Bhayandar and Thane. 

Maharashtra has been under either complete lockdown or partially under it for over three months which has caused serious damage to the economic activities including industrial production, the BJP MP wrote in his letter. 

Apart from Industrialists, he said that traders, shopkeepers, other professional including commoners have been adversely affected due to the inconsistency brought by the lockdown imposition. 

Sahasrabuddhe, the BJP Vice president, suggested that public gardens, temples, gyms should be allowed to open since open-air plays an important role in preventing the spread of the coronavirus. He said that the same should be done keeping in mind that they follow protocols.

Maharashtra remains on the worst-hit states in India due to the coronavirus pandemic with 2,54,427 COVID-19 cases. On Sunday, nearly 7,827 fresh coronavirus cases were reported in the state along with 173 deaths. The fatality rate remains at 4.04 per cent in Maharashtra.
