As the COVID-19 cases continue to rise, NMC Commissioner Tukaram Mundhe has asserted that putting people from hotspots into quarantine facilities proved to be correct strategy in Nagpur’s fight against COVID-19. Mundhes statement comes after 44 people tested positive for coronavirus in a single day (May 6).
Mundhe wrote on Twitter, ₹44 new cases in NMC today! Except 1 all were in institutional quarantine. The quarantine was vehemently opposed by almost everyone & we got brick bats & abuses but it’s proven to be a correct strategy preventing spread to 1000s helping break the #COVID19 chain.

For the uninitiated, after the 1,408 residents of Satranjipura were quarantined by NMC, a PIL was filed against NMC calling the move ?illegal. The residents were quarantined after a man from Satranjipura, who tested positive for COVID-19, turned out to be the source of virus for over 100 affected people.
Mundhes decisions for fighting COVID-19 have been vehemently opposed by people from various walks of life. After NMC issued directives on April 23 to 12 private hospitals to be ready for treating COVID-19 patients, Dhantoli residents association approached high court against this order. Recently, when Mundhe extended total lockdown in Nagpur in spite of MHA guidelines for allowing some relaxations, five lawyers moved HC against the decision.
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!”
