Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday announced that he will not accept any kind of welcome including bouquets at public events until the possibility of a third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic recedes completely.

As cases were again rising in Kerala, people must take precautions while organizing programs, he said.

"Till the possibility of a third wave of COVID-19 totally ends, I will not accept any kind of welcome including flower bouquets," Chouhan said at a function here.

The chief minister also said he was "full of remorse" that he was accorded welcome at some places in Indore as he arrived here in connection with a mega vaccination drive.

"It should not have happened and I apologize for it with folded hands," the CM said.
