Madhya Pradesh government on Wednesday extended the suspension of passenger bus operations with Maharashtra till April 15 because of a huge surge in coronavirus positive cases in the neighbouring state.

The MP government had suspended the passenger bus operations with Maharashtra from March 21 to March 31.

In an order issued on Wednesday, the Madhya Pradesh Transport Department said the decision to continue the suspension of the inter-state operation of buses with Maharashtra has been taken given the rise in Covid-19 cases in that state.

On Monday, Barwani district administration sealed its borders with Maharashtra excluding the Agra-Mumbai Road and Khetia Road.

Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday reported 2,173 Covid-19 cases, taking the tally of infections to 2,93,179.
