Mumbai : Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray said on Sunday that he would not celebrate his 60th birthday on July 27, he said.
“Nature is angry over the Konkan part of western Maharashtra and people have died due to floods and landslides , many families have been affected,” he underscored.
“No one should celebrate on July 27 as the state is mourning due to natural calamity of floods and landslides in many districts,” he sighed.
He said, “No one should meet in person to wish him happy birthday and no one should put up hoarding, posters and extend wishes through social media and email.”
“The COVID crisis is still raging in the state, with medical experts predicting a possible third wave, so health rules need to be strictly adhered to,” he added.
He appealed, “We need to help each other in flood and corona situations, so we should fulfill our duty of social responsibility by contributing to the CM Assistance Fund rather than celebrating birthdays.”
