Leader of the opposition and former Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis recently met Uddhav Thackeray to speak about the abrupt transfer of the police constable Sanjay Ghule. Sanjay Ghule had been shifted 200 km away from his home town in Washim district.

On May 17, Fadnavis was on his way to Nagpur via road when he stopped at a village in Washim. There he interacted with a section of constables who spoke to him about their plight and how they were battling the coronavirus, without adequate masks or sanitizers. An audio-visual recording of the incident was then shared on the internet anonymously which later went viral. The former CM then felt that the constable Ghule was, therefore, paying a price for speaking out. 

Subsequently, after Fadnavis found out that Ghule was shunned from his village, he stated that he feared such backlash could deter the spirit of the honest police force.

In a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, the BJP leader informed that the policeman was only listing down shortcomings for the benefit of his colleagues. He added that 2,300 police personnel in the state had been infected with the novel coronavirus while on duty.

In other news, the Maharashtra government has allowed some reactions in the lockdown 5.0. As per the new guidelines, night curfew timings have been amended to 9:00 PM to 5 AM across the nation, except for essential services. Moreover, the MHA has stated that lockdown in containment zones will continue till June 30, allowing only essential activities and no movement of people in or out of it.
