Amid the coronavirus outbreak in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Friday informed that all his party MLAs and MPs will contribute their one month’s salary to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund (CMRF) in order to tackle the ongoing coronavirus crisis. 

On Twitter, Raut expressed that they will surely win this war against the coronavirus while stating that all Shiv Sena MPs and MLAs are giving their one month salary to the CM’s relief fund. 

“All Shiv Sena MPs and MLAs are giving their one month salary to the CM’s relief fund. It is a small contribution to the fight against the coronavirus. We will surely win this war led by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray,” Sanjay Raut tweeted on Friday. 

Earlier on March 23, the Shiv Sena leader said that he will not attend the Parliament along with other MPs of his party and will stay in Maharashtra amid the coronavirus outbreak. 

Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari also contributed his one month to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund to help those affected by the coronavirus or COVID-19. Moreover, the Governor asked all officers and staff of Raj Bhavan to donate their one day salary to the CMRF for the same. 

In the wake of the increasing cases in India, the Prime Minister on Tuesday announced a nationwide lockdown for 21-days. The total number of positive COVID-19 cases in the country has increased to 724 with 17 deaths, as of March 27. Maharashtra has become the worst-hit state after Kerala now with 135 coronavirus cases. 

In order to avoid panic and a step towards decreasing the crowding problem amid the nationwide lockdown, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Thursday announced that essential services including medical stories and grocery shops will remain open for 24 hours.
