“I am not here to tell you anything negative. I am here to wish Gudipadwa to all,” said Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday during his address via web telecast. 

“I came this afternoon to address you all and not in the morning or else you would have thought what is he going to say now. I know that there was a state of confusion all over (after the nationwide lockdown was announced),” said CM Uddhav Thackeray. 

After Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced countrywide lockdown for 21 days from March 25, CM Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday addressed the citizens reiterating that this is war and urged people to stay at home in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. 

“It is a war. I hope that everyone has understood the dangers of coronavirus. When we are not aware of the enemy then the enemy will attack us. So, we have to be aware as we cannot see the enemy here,” Uddhav Thackeray said. 

Maharashtra has become the worst-hit state across the country with 116 active cases of the coronavirus or COVID-19. Four new positive COVID-19 cases have emerged in Mumbai taking the toll to 48. In India, the number of positive coronavirus cases has increased to 562. 

The Chief Minister further informed that the Maharashtra government has sufficient stock of essential services and items including vegetables, rice and other items of daily use. 

“There is no need to worry. All shops selling essential items are open. We will celebrate Gudipadwa once we tackle this crisis,” Thackeray asserted. 

The Prime Minister on Tuesday night addressed the nation while announcing a nationwide lockdown in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The number of cases for coronavirus or COVID-19 is on a constant rise in India and the lockdown has been placed to tackle the crisis.
