  • TV actor Karan Patel is angry that the Maharashtra government decided to tackle the recent surge in coronavirus cases by ordering the common man to stop working, while life remains as usual for many, including politicians.

Actor Karan Patel has questioned the partial lockdown and restrictions imposed in Maharashtra, especially in wake of the political rallies that continue as usual, without following any of the Covid-19 safety rules.

Karan took to Instagram Stories and wrote, “Actors CAN continue to shoot for their projects. Cricketers CAN continue to play their matches, day or night. Politicians CAN hold rallies with thousands of people. States CAN conduct elections and expect you to come out to vote. BUT the common man cannot go to work. #Stupid and Outright senseless.”

Actor Nakuul Mehta also seemed to have similar views as Karan. He posted on Instagram Stories, "Political rallies - Not needed, Bollywood Awards Shows - Nah, Religious Gathering - No, Kumbh Mela - Deffo not BUT ALONE IN CAR - YAAAS!!!!!" He was reacting to the new rule of wearing a mask inside a car in Delhi, even when driving alone.

Maharashtra is under a partial lockdown, with night curfew and weekend lockdown being imposed earlier this week. The restrictions will remain in place till April 30. However, retailers, traders and a few other sectors have been protesting against the partial lockdown and the government is likely to tweak its standard operating procedures (SOPs), offering relaxations to a few sectors soon. Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray held a meeting with them and hinted at the relaxations.

“The restrictions imposed are out of compulsion amid the second wave. Not only traders and business, even the state is facing losses to the exchequer. We will definitely reconsider the decision and offer some relaxation after a due deliberation with task force, police administration and other departments,” the CM said.
