New rules will apply in Maharashtra from April 4
Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray (CM Uddhav Thackeray) interacted with the public through social media on Friday night. He said that it is necessary to save life first, other things can also happen later. Today I am warning of complete lock down in Maharashtra. If no other option is seen in the next two days, then the world is doing what it has to accept. That is, the CM is indicating that the lockdown is the only option if there is no alternative. He said that if there is any option other than lockdown to break the Corona chain. Meanwhile, the Chief Minister will talk to experts from different fields and if not the lockdown?
By looking at the kind of situation that has arisen in Maharashtra, it can be understood that easy measures are not going to work. So what can be the rules of lockdown? First of all, the night jamabandi (section 144) is applicable in Maharashtra, it can be extended even further. Right now Section 144 is applicable from 8 am to 7 am. Its time can be extended and curfew can be announced from 6 pm to 6 am like Pune. Malls, shopping complexes, multiplexes, theaters are likely to be completely closed. The time of vegetable market and vegetable shops can be regularized.
Decision to stop Mumbai local train?
At the same time, it has been repeatedly discussed that a particular reason for the rapid rise in corona infection in Mumbai is the increasing congestion in Mumbai Local Trains. CM also mentioned this thing in his speech. Therefore, it may be that once again the time limit is increased in the local train for the common passengers or it should be stopped at all for the local commuters. At least in Pune, the way the city buses have been closed for a week to break the Corona chain, the same rule should be applicable with the Mumbai local. It is possible that the Mumbai local should be started only for the people working in the most essential services. Like Pune, only state transport bus services can be started in the whole of Maharashtra. The only difference is that only after the corona test can you be allowed to enter the bus.
Pune formula may apply
The way Section 144 is applicable in Pune in the same day, in the whole of Maharashtra including Mumbai. Or in those districts where corona infection is more, Section 144 can be implemented in a day. In those private institutions, ‘Work from Home’ can be strictly ordered for employees. In government offices too, work can be conducted with the presence of 25 percent employees. Similarly, the decision to keep schools and colleges closed can be maintained and the system of online education can be further enhanced. All religious sites can be completely closed for a few days. Parcel facility can be started only by keeping the state hotels, restaurants, bars closed.
