Keeping in the mind the increasing cases of Coronavirus emerging from Nagpur’s Satranjipura area, BJP MLA Krishna Khopde has requested Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray to handover the area to the military to help NMC to do door-to-door testing in an effective manner. Khopde is an MLA from East Nagpur where Satranjipura is situated.
In a letter dated April 21, Khopde has written: People residing in Satranjipura area are scared as the area has become of hotspot for COVID-19. Out of 89 COVID-19 positive patients in Nagpur currently, 55 patients are linked to Satranjipura. Moreover, over 200 COVID-19 suspects from the area have been put under institutional quarantine.
Khopde added, Even though the police have already sealed the area, cases from the area continue to emerge. The residents in the area did not co-operate when NMC officials went to their homes for the COVID-19 survey. If the area is not handed over to the army, the situation may get worse and cases will continue to emerge.
For the uninitiated, Khopde had written about the same to Nagpur Municipal Commissioner Tukaram Mundhe more than a week back.

Shashi Tharoor is capable of bringing Congress back in power, says Congress leader Ashish Deshmukh
Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”
Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”
Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
