Web Team : Pune
NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Friday urged the people to follow the government’s directives to contain its spread and termed the Covid-19 outbreak as a grave crisis. The NCP chief said if people do not follow the government orders, then everybody will have to face serious consequences.

While doing a live interaction with people on Facebook on Friday Pawar said he has seen several calamities, like earthquakes, floods and droughts in the past, but the present crisis is “very serious.” During the interaction, Pawar’s daughter and Lok Sabha member Supriya Sule read out some of the queries and requested him to address those issues. It included an appeal made by state Health Minister Rajesh Tope, who was viewing the live interaction, in which he requested Pawar to urge the people to stay indoors.

Responding to an appeal from Tope, the NCP chief Pawar said, “It is our duty to support your and your team’s efforts…I am staying indoors and will not venture out.” The Maratha warlord also welcomed the Central government’s economic package and RBI’s decisions to tide over the crisis.

Pawar, however, said that the package for agriculture sector is not enough. It is impossible to repay the crop loan. Some steps should be taken for the horticulture sector as well, the NCP chief insisted.

The NCP shares power with Shiv Sena and Congress party in Maharashtra. His nephew Ajit Pawar is the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra. Yesterday Ajit Pawar had indicated that if essential personnel such as doctors and police are being attacked in Maharashtra, then the Army could be called in to maintain law and order.


The police arrested the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) MLA, Mufti Mohammad Ismail from Malegaon in Northern Maharashtra on Thursday for allegedly attacking a doctor in a government hospital. The MLA reportedly barged into the hospital and manhandled the doctor for delaying the discharge of two patients admitted there.
