COVID-19: Don't want to impose lockdown but 'majboori', says Uddhav Thackeray

Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday expressed his disinterest over imposing a lockdown in the state in view of the rising coronavirus cases. He said, "I do not want to impose it but 'majboori' (helplessness) is also something."

"I do not want to impose lockdown in the state but 'majboori' is also something," he said during a press conference held in Mumbai.

The CM also urged citizens of the state to adhere to covid rule and wear masks to avoid lockdown. However, the Chief Minister assured that he is continuously monitoring the situation.

CM Thackeray had said on February 21 that the following eight days would decide whether there will be a lockdown in the state.
