Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray expressed his concern over large gatherings in the state. In a virtual meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Thackeray requested him to intervene in this matter and instruct political parties to refrain from organising protests.

In a subtle hint towards the BJP, without naming the leaders and party, Thackeray brought up the issue of political protests for reopening of temples and the issue of inflated electricity bills. Thackeray also appealed the political parties to lend their cooperation instead of playing politics.

During the meeting, the CM said that few politicians are playing with the lives of the people and organising protests amid the second wave of COVID-19 and requested PM Modi to convene them to follow COVID-19 protocols.

Thackeray told the PM that the daily caseload in the state has reduced to 4,700-5,000 cases from 24,000 in September. He also apprised the PM of the Maharashtra government’s outreach programme “My Family, My Responsibility”, and said that it helped in tracing suspected contacts and people with comorbidities.

In the same meeting, it was informed to the Prime Minister that the state has formed a task force to ensure timely distribution of coronavirus vaccine and executing the vaccination programme.

Besides Thackeray, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani, Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot, Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel, Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar, Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan, and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal are among those present at the meeting, being held via video conferencing.

Maharashtra continues to be on the top in the list of worst-COVID affected states with 82,915 active cases and 3,172 deaths, according to the Union Health Ministry. 1,79,237 people have recovered from the disease in the state.
