The public participation under ‘My family My Responsibly’ should be increased and encouraged, the Chief Minister said while adding that initiatives like ‘No Mask No Entry’ should be included in the government’s campaign and implemented across the state. 

“There is a need for effective public awareness campaigns to tell people that wearing masks, washing their hands and practising social distancing is necessary. Kolhapur has started an innovative initiative. This will be useful for breaking the corona chain. Therefore, this initiative should be implemented across the state,” Thackeray said. 

The number of coronavirus cases are increasing on daily basis in Maharashtra and has become a matter of major concern for the state and local administrations. The Chief Minister earlier announced the 'My Family My Responsibility' campaign and asked every citizen to participate. 

“Everyone should be active in this campaign to create a healthy Maharashtra. Essay competitions, oratory competitions should be organised to increase public participation,” Thackeray said while adding that those who walk in public places without masks should be punished.

Kolhapur Guardian Minister Satej Patil said that the 'My Family My Responsibility' campaign is being implemented extensively in the district and citizens are being screened by a health team. He informed that a fine of nearly ₹1 crores was collected from citizens in the district for not wearing masks. 

“In Kolhapur district, patients are coming for treatment from the border areas including Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg. Therefore, there was a requirement of physicians and to increase the beds,” Patil added.
