Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Saturday denounced the Centre's decision to resume domestic flights from May 25 allegedly without following any standard operating procedure and said that effective steps were lacking to check the spread of Covid-19.

"When there is a spike in corona positive cases in the country, if domestic flight services are resumed, it would further aggravate the situation," Baghel said in a letter to Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri.

The Chief Minister asserted that the domestic flights should be made operational only after following strict and effective guidelines to curb the spread of the virus.

He told the Union Minister that details of each passenger should be shared with states concerned in view of increasing number of corona cases.

Baghel also suggested a mandatory 14-day quarantine for all passengers at a paid or state-operated facility. He said this should be conveyed to air passengers when tickets are booked.

The Chief Minister said that effective guidelines on flights resumption will help the state governments to take action to control the coronavirus infections.
