To,
Shri. Uddhav Thackeray, Honourable Chief Minister of Maharashtra,

Subject: Practical measures and policy changes needed urgently to save Maharashtra from uncontrollable spread of Covid-19.

Dear Sir,
It is extremely alarming to note that the spread of Covid-19 is spiraling out of control in our state. As per the website of public health department, total number of positive cases recorded till 15th June is 1,10,744. Out of this, 56,049 have recovered but fatality rate in our state is 3.7 % which is much higher than the national average of 2.9 %. Nearly 80,000 of positive cases recorded till 15th June are in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region and more than 11,500 are in Pune and its satellite city Pimpri-Chinchwad. The total number of Covid19 deaths reported in Maharashtra till 15th June is 4128, of which 2814 are from MMR and 475 are from Pune urban region. But, in our view, if we do not break the chains of transmission effectively, all urban centres of our state and even villages will be severely affected by this epidemic.

Empty slogans cannot feed mouths!

‘Modi sarkar’ has been a huge disaster for the youth of India. They had come to power promising 2 crore jobs every year. Instead of providing the promised jobs Modi gave chest thumping speeches in abundance along with free advice to sell pakodas !  ‘Make in India’, ‘Skill India’, ‘Digital India’, ‘Start up India’, ‘Stand up India’ etc. are publicity stunts to cheat the youth. It seems, the government believes public memory is short. So they change grand slogans every season.
