According to reports, on Friday, May 9, Prime Minister Narendra Modi telephoned Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to ask him about Maharashtra's efforts in the fight against the coronavirus and praised the government for putting up a good fight against the second wave.

Meanwhile, CM Thackeray informed the Prime Minister about the steps taken by the Maharashtra government in view of the potential third wave of the pandemic. "He (Thackeray) also requested for more supply of oxygen to Maharashtra," the CMO statement said. "The Prime Minister and the Centre have been guiding us in this battle since the beginning and it has been proven beneficial. We are thankful to the Centre for accepting some of our suggestions and demands," the statement added.

Moreover, earlier on Saturday, Thackeray wrote a letter to the Centre seeking permission to develop a separate application for the vaccination against the coronavirus disease in the state after he received several complaints of frequent glitches in the CoWin platform.

Ever since the Supreme Court commended the Maharashtra government and administration for managing the COVID-19 crisis in Mumbai, the tone of the opposition in the state has softened a bit. In addition, the phone call made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi will help ease tensions on both sides.

Currently, the state is placed under lockdown-like restrictions till May 15. These restrictions were first imposed from April 14 to May 1 which restricted the movement of people, closure of movie halls, auditoriums etc. On April 22, a fresh series of restrictions were introduced by the state government on inter-city and inter-district travel, office attendance, and weddings.
