Amidst a constant rise in COVID-19 cases in Maharashtra, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government has imposed new restrictions across the state.
These new guidelines will be implemented from 8 pm on Monday, April 5 to April 30. A strict lockdown will be imposed on Saturdays and Sundays. This news is currently making the rounds on the internet. The restrictions are earning mixed reactions from the public.

A huge section of the population is supportive of the measures taken. People are hopeful that lockdown and curfew together will be able to control the second wave of the deadly virus.
