Mumbai, March 21: All the people have to come together to confront the Corona breakout in the state. People should not get crowded at public places in large number to avoid the infection of Novel COVID-19. They should stay at home. This appeal was made by Chief Minister Mr Thackeray. He also urged the establishments not to deduct the salary of contractual and temporary employees.

Meanwhile, the labour department has appealed to all the establishments and business houses to positively respond to the chief minister’s appeal. Labour commissioner Dr Mahendra Kalyankar had instructed all the labour deputy commissioners, assistant commissioners, labour officers to ask all the establishments under their jurisdiction not to deduct the salaries of the daily wages, contractual and temporary employees, adding that such labours should not be stripped off their jobs. All the establishments, companies are also appealed that they should help the government in this challenging situation and if any employee goes on leave, his salary should not be deducted.

If any area is infected by Corona and the outbreak is experienced, the entire area can be closed down. In such a situation, it should be considered that the labor and other assisting workers are on duty. If any labor is stripped off from the job his entire family will have to bear the financial problems and this in turn can affect the fight against Corona outbreak and he can be morally depressed so the establishments and companies should consider the appeal seriously, Dr Kalyankar added.
