COVID-19: Maharashtra to impose lockdown again? Here's what Health Minister Rajesh Tope said | Trending News in India Trending News in India

Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope on Wednesday (November 25) said that there will be no fresh lockdown in the state but added that the government is thinking to impose some restrictions in order to curb the spread of COVID-19 cases.

It is to be noted that coronavirus cases in Maharashtra have increased in the last one week leading to talks that the state government may impose lockdown in some districts to stem the infection spread.

Speaking to reporters, “There has been no decision yet on introduction of another round of lockdown in the state. “In fact, there will be no lockdown but some strict restrictions will be introduced for a period to keep a check on the increasing number of COVID-19 cases. We will hold a meeting with the chief minister and implement the decision accordingly.” 

“There are reports of people crowding public and market places without face masks. We appeal to people to regularly use mask and strictly following other measures of sanitisation, said the health minister. The unlocking process was started after peoples demand to ease curbs, but now it seems citizens are not following preventive measures,” Tope added.

Referring to reports of ‘vaccine tourism’, Tope said that he has no knowledge of this matter and added that if anyone is doing this then this is wrong and it should be stopped. Tope noted that there is still no authorised vaccine against coronavirus yet.

The Maharashtra Health Minister that it is still not known when India will receive coronavirus vaccine but the state government is fully ready to distribute the vaccine once it arrives in India.

Abstain from voting, will make you minister: Lalu Yadav's alleged audio goes viral | Trending News in India Trending News in India

A major political upheavel has started in Bihar politics hours before the election of the Assembly Speaker and it is suprising that jailed RJD supremo Lalu Yadav is at the center of this development.

Just a day after BJP leader Sushil Modi accused Lalu Yadav of calling NDA MLAs and luring them to topple the Nitish Kumar-led NDA government, an alleged audio of Lalu has surfaced in which he can be heard asking MLA Lallan Paswan to remain absent from Assembly during the election of Speaker. In the alleged audio, Lalu can be heard saying that if Paswan helps the RJD then he will be made a minister once the RJD comes to power. 

In the audio, Lalu’s assistant dials the MLA’s number, whose name is still not clear. The phone is picked by MLA’s PA and then Lalu’s assitant told him that Honorable Lalu Prasad Yadav will talk to MLA. When MLAs come on call, Lalu first congratulates the MLA and then says that he should abstain from the Assembly during voting. When the MLA says that it will be tough for him then Lalu suggests him that tell that you are suffering from coronavirus. Lalu also says that this government will fall and he will be made a minister in RJD-led government.

However, RJD has said that the alleged audio is fake and said that BJP is doing this to divert attention from the main issues.

On Tuesday, Sushil Kumar Modi had claimed that Lalu was trying to ‘buy’ NDA MLAs in order to form RJD-led Mahagathbandhan government in the state.

According to Sushil Modi, Lalu Prasad, who is presently staying at Kelly bungalow at Ranchi’s Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences, was calling NDA MLAs and luring them to leave NDA and join hands with Mahagathbandhan.

“Lalu Yadav making telephone call (XXX) from Ranchi to NDA legislators and promising ministerial berths”, tweeted Sushil Modi.

Sushil Modi said that when he dialled the mentioned mobile number, the call was picked up by Lalu Prasad. Sushil Modi claimed that he told the RJD supremo not to indulge in dirty tricks from inside the jail.
