Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar on Friday said that the state government will soon announce a financial package to move away from the ongoing economic crisis due to the coronavirus outbreak and nationwide lockdown. 

Ajit Pawar, who also holds the Finance portfolio in MVA government, said that all financial activities have come to a halt as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown. Moreover, the businesses, as well as jobs, have also been affected. 

“We are facing an economic crisis and we want to find a way out. The Maharashtra government will soon announce a financial package and a decision in this regard will be taken in the cabinet,” Pawar said while talking to a reporter in Pimpri Chinchwad near Pune. 

Although the central government had announced an economic package of worth ₹20 lakh crores, there is difference of opinion on how much money will be given to people. Earlier, the MVA leaders have criticised the economic package announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi amid COVID-19 pandemic. 

Ajit Pawar further informed that the Maharashtra government was seeking help from the centre and was raising the issues being faced by the state in video conferences with the Prime Minister.

Due to the mass exodus of migrant workers and labourers to their respective homes, a vacuum has been created and there are few replacement labours. Pawar has urged the youth living in backward areas of Maharashtra to take up jobs in industrial sectors. 

Earlier, the Maharashtra government also announced that the state industry department will launch a web portal of labour bureau where the unemployed youth can register themselves under-skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled.  

There was no need to think about who thinks what and we all should together to eliminate the current situation of the state, Pawar said when asked about BJP’s allegations that the MVA government has failed in handling COVID-19 crisis.
