Panaji: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant has urged his Maharashtra counterpart Uddhav Thackrey not to single out states as ‘places of sensitive origin’ for COVID-19 infection.
Sawant was referring to the order by Chief Secretary of Maharashtra Sitaram Kunte wherein the state government has declared Kerala, Goa, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Delhi and NCR Region and Uttarakhand as Places of Sensitive Origin. The order was issued on Sunday.
Sawant tweeted “#COVID19 is a global pandemic. Let us put up a combined fight against this pandemic under the leadership of PM @narendramodi ji. I urge @CMOMaharashtra not to single out states as ‘Places of Sensitive Origin’, and withdraw the said order in public interest.”
