“Personnel serving in essential services like health, medical education, police administration and home guards should get their pending wages immediately. If industrialists ensure they will take care of their workers’ accommodation and health in rural areas and industrial estates of MIDC, such industrial units can be reopened,” they said.

The state disaster management authority should take an appropriate decision as per Central government guidelines, and the meeting also decided to start Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act works in rural areas.
