Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar
Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar has tested positive for Covid-19, a statement issued by his office said. He checked into Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai on the advice of doctors. The deputy chief minister said, ” My health is fine. After a little rest will be back to my work.”
Last week, Pawar cancelled his meeting with NCP workers at the party office.
Earlier this month, Pawar was among senior party leaders who visited flood affected parts of western Maharashtra to supervise relief and rescue work. In Solapur district, he announced that farmers hit by the crisis will be compensated. “No farmer will be left out,” he said, while directing revenue authorities to complete the work of damage assessment on an urgent basis.
