Despite restrictions imposed under section 144 of Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) by the Maharashtra government in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, citizens left their house and were seen roaming freely. Reacting to this, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Monday urged the people to stay at home for their own safety while stating that people should break the law. 

The Maharashtra government on Sunday imposed section 144 of CrPC in all urban parts of the state in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak which has infected 89 people. The Uddhav Thackeray also suspended public transport including local train service, buses and metro. However, the Chief Minister said that the essential services such as groceries, vegetable vendors, banks and key financial services will remain functional. 

“People should take this war against coronavirus seriously. Don’t play with yourself and others health. Section 144 in Maharashtra has been invoked so that essential services continue to operate. Don’t violate rules and break the law by bringing your vehicles out on streets,” said Uddhav Thackeray. 

According to reports, there was a huge traffic jam at Thane-Mulund Toll Naka. Various handles on Twitter shared the photos and videos of the jammed toll-plaza. 

In the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, the Maharashtra government will operate with five per cent of the staff. The attendance has been reduced from 25 per cent to five per cent. 

Earlier today, Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope informed that the community transmission in the state has not entered yet and the number of infected cases of coronavirus has increased to 89. 

“The police can take action under section 144. We have also issued orders to disburse the crowds at various checkpoints,” said Tope. 

In the wake of the coronavirus outbreak across Maharashtra, the state health minister informed that he will address media digitally through his Facebook page.
