SATARA: BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis said here on Friday that religious places in Maharashtra should be opened as in other states.

If liquor shops and malls can reopen with relaxation of lockdown, why should religious places remain closed, the former chief minister said.

"We expect religious places will be opened for the public in Maharashtra as has been done by all other states in the country," he told reporters.

People are aware of the danger of coronavirus and will take all the precautions even if religious places are reopened, Fadnavis opined.

He was here to review the COVID-19 situation in Satara, which he termed as alarming.

"Number of cases is increasing constantly and infection rate lately is around 22 percent," he pointed out.
