Need To Accept Coronavirus As Part Of Life: Sharad Pawar

Mumbai: NCP chief Sharad Pawar said that the novel coronovirus will not be completely eliminated soon and should be accepted as a part of life.

People should maintain personal hygiene, he said and urged the information department of the Maharashtra government to spread social awareness to fight COVID-19.

“Corona disease will not be completely eradicated shortly. It is necessary to accept the corona as a part of life, beware of it & create awareness among the masses about health care. In Japan, people wear masks, look after personal hygiene as part of their routine social life, Pawar tweeted.

Noting that the lockdown has disrupted vehicular traffic, Pawar underscored the need to gradually restore road transport within the state and take the right steps for plans to resume air and rail services.

Pawar, whose party is a coalition partner in the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maharashtra government, called for a restart of the situation by relaxing some lockdown situations in the state.

He said, “The state government should make arrangements to inform the public about the level of relaxation at a certain time every day.”

With activists migrating to their places of origin, Pawar said that new job opportunities have arisen for the unemployed in Maharashtra, and action plans have been made on how to accommodate them in the industry.

The veteran leader said, “There were several incentive schemes for industries in backward and underdeveloped areas earlier. Similarly, new policies should be issued to encourage industrial development so as to attract new investment in the state.”

“The pace of work in public and private ports seems to have slowed down. To increase imports, exports and inland shipping, consultations should be held with industrialists, entrepreneurs and expert officials in the field, the former Maharashtra chief minister said.

“The presence of state ministers and officials needs to be reinstated to build public confidence about the situation in the state returning to normalcy,” he said.

The NCP chief asked the government to issue appropriate instructions to ministers and officials to be present at their workplace.

“Shops, offices and establishments in the private sector should be opened in a staggered manner with complete caution, he added.
