In another tweet, he said, "The next academic year will be delayed due to the situation of #Covid_19 and lockdown. As a result, the number of students & teachers will decline. The income of educational institutions & technological institutions is likely to get adversely affected."

"Some educational institutions are likely to collapse or close down due to financial losses. A study group or committee should be appointed to take timely measures to ensure that students, teachers & educational institutions are not harmed & process of education is not disrupted," said Pawar.

In a series of tweets, the NCP chief further talked about industries in Maharashtra and said that strategy is needed to restart the factories.

"Factories are not in a position to resume as workers from the state and outside the state have migrated to the villages. We need to strategise to bring them back," a tweet from Sharad Pawar's account read.
