Religious places in Maharashtra allowed to open from Monday
The Uddhav Thackeray Government has urged the people to strictly follow social distancing and other covid protocols while entering religious places. The demand for reopening of temples and other religious places was growing. The priests too had threatened to go on strike. All religious places had remained shut ever since the lockdown was clamped in March.

MUMBAI, Nov 14: All religious places including temples will be allowed to open in Maharashtra from Monday, the Government announced on Saturday. The decision followed protests by the BJP, MNS, priests and others.

In a statement, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said that "we cannot forget what the COVID-19 virus has done, and though the effect has slowed down, we should not become careless."

"The people of the State observed discipline during this covid period. That is why the situation in Maharashtra has not gone out of hand as compared to other States. Maharashtra has always been blessed by saints, gods, and goddesses," the Chief Minister said.

Thackeray said the Government has decided to open all places of religious worship on the eve of Padwa. Everyone needs to follow strict rules and discipline. The key is to avoid crowds. Face mask is mandatory, he cautioned. \

The demand for reopening of religious places was growing in the State. The priests had threatened to go on an indefinite strike against the State Government if their demands were not met. Sadhus too staged protests against the closure of temples.

Thackeray had said earlier, "We are being careful and not re-opening temples as people will queue up. I am delaying reopening of temples to curb the spread of coronavirus. I am ready to face criticism and those critics will not come forward to take responsibility if virus infection increases."
