The minister stated that action will be taken against those found responsible. Meanwhile, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has appealed that the coming Bakri Eid should be celebrated in a simple and if possible "symbolic" manner in view of the coronavirus pandemic.

He also asked people to avoid crowding during the festival which falls on August 1 and stated that there should be no insistence on the provision of the marketplace for purchasing goats for Bakri Eid.
