The 21 days of lockdown is likely to extend and there is no official word on it yet in state Tamilnadu. The number of positive corona cases went past 1000 in Tamilnadu and it is increasing in daily manner. The state and central government is doing all the ways to prevent the virus from spreading in the state. As it is highly believed that the lockdown extension will last at least till 30th of April, a man who stuck in some other district, requested chief Minister Edappadi Pazhaniswamy to give at least one day gap to reach his 9 months pregnant wife.
He asked the Chief Minister Of Tamilnadu to provide one day gap at least. “No one is there with my wife. I got stuck in a neighbour district. It’s her first pregnancy. How can she handle it alone ? Even if she have to call 108 ambulance, some one has to be with her. I applied for pass and there is no response as well. Don’t you consider this as a medical emergency ?” he asked in the reply to a post updated by Chief Minister Edappadi K Pazhaniswamy.
“Sir thayavusenji one dayathu gap kudunga plzzz..En wife pregnantah iruka 9 months…Avakuda yarumae illa..Na pakathu districtla maatikiten…1st pregnancy..Thaniya epd handle panuva..108 ku cal panalum kooda yarathu irukanum..Passku apply panium no response..Ithu med emer illaya” read his comment.
