Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday favoured imposing lockdown in the state in the wake of the rapidly rising number of Covid-19 cases and the worsening situation.

However, a final decision on whether a lockdown will be imposed in Maharashtra is yet to be taken.

Addressing a virtual all-party meeting called to discuss the Covid-19 situation, Uddhav Thackeray said there is no option other than to impose lockdown and strict restrictions.

"If the Covid-19 cycle is to be stopped, strict restrictions will have to be imposed, albeit temporarily," he said.

The chief minister added that situation can turn very bad between April 15 and 20.

In a series of tweets after the all-party meeting, the chief ministers' office said Uddhav Thackeray has appealed to all parties to support whatever decision is taken by the government keeping people's health in mind.

"The number of Covid-19 patients is increasing so fast that if a decision is not taken today about a lockdown, a situation like a lockdown will automatically come tomorrow," the CMO said in another tweet.
