In wake of a fresh COVID surge, Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday warned that the state would impose a strict lockdown if people did not follow COVID protocols for the next eight days.

He also announced a complete ban for a few days on all political, social, and religious gatherings, processions, morchas, and public protests to check the spread of the disease.

In a 30-minute talk on social media, the CM told the people that it was in their hands to prevent another lockdown: “Now, my question to you is, should we impose a lockdown? Those who do not want a lockdown will observe protocols like using masks, washing hands, and keeping physical distance. People who want a lockdown again will flout these rules. Let us see who wants a lockdown, and who doesn’t. I am very clear about this... Observe discipline, prevent a lockdown.”

Referring to the increasing COVID-19 cases in the city and Pune, Thackeray warned about a second wave.
