As the number of COVID-19 cases in Maharashtra rises up to 5,652, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar on Wednesday expressed concerns over the reports of frontline workers getting infected by the coronavirus or COVID-19.  

In the view of the increasing cases for the coronavirus, Pawar said that Muslims should offer namaz during Ramzan from their homes and not in mosques or any other public place. 

Pawar also appealed to the public to stay at home while expressing displeasure saying that it was unfortunate that some people are yet to understand the seriousness of the situation. 

There have been several reports stating that doctors, nurses, healthcare professional, police personnel, government employees along with journalists have been tested positive for the coronavirus or COVID-19. The Maharashtra Deputy CM has urged those discharging their duty to take care of the health. 

The Ramadan or Ramzan are scheduled to begin later this week and while extending greetings for the same, Pawar said, “Muslim brothers should break their fast with Iftar and offer nawab, Taraweeh inside their homes and not in mosques.” 

Ajit Pawar, who holds the Maharashtra Finance portfolio, expressed confidence in his statement saying that the unity will help register a victory in the fight against the coronavirus or COVID-19. 

While speaking on the lockdown earlier, Ajit Pawar appealed people to stay at home and not gather on roads while behaving “irresponsibly”. World Health Organisation (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has warned that the worst is yet ahead of us in relation to the coronavirus pandemic. 

“Stay at home and don’t behave irresponsibly if you want him wrong. However, people are still gathering on roads without any reason. They are risking the lives of their families as well. This should stop,” Ajit Pawar said. 

Moreover, Ajit Pawar also condemned the Palghar mob lynching in which an angry mob killed three people, including two Sadhus and their driver on suspicion that they were child-kidnappers and organ harvesters. The accused in Palghar mob lynching will get strict punishment as per the law, Pawar said.
