    I dont understand why the contracting governments decided to open borders with countrys epicentre maharashtra! I mean , not at all making this comment on any personal front ; but i wonder what was the need? Yes maybe people want to come to their home towns but then in any national disaster as such that we are facing now ; compared to the thousands that want to come back to their home towns, the necessity of controlling the spread was very much necessary. Whats the point in bringing back people and infecting every state of the country?
