Struggling to contain the Covid-19 surge, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on April 13 announced curfew-like restrictions on the movement of people in the state from 8 pm on April 14 to May 1. However, he stopped short of calling it a lockdown. In a 38-minute address to the state, Thackeray announced stricter restrictions than those in place since April 6, exempting only essential services. According to the order issued by the administration, prohibitory orders under Section 144 are to be imposed in the state from April 14 night & will remain in force until May 1. No person is allowed to be in a public place without a valid reason. And all establishments, public spaces, activities and services will remain closed, except for essential services that will remain open between 7 am and 8 pm on working days. Thackeray urged people to “work from home” and refrain from moving out by observing a “Janata Curfew”. The Chief Minister also announced a relief package of Rs 5,476 crore.
