The Governor also called upon members who attended the Tablighi Jamaat congregation in New Delhi to cooperate with medical staff, administration and police, a statement from Rajbhawan said.

Mishra spoke to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot over the phone and discussed the situation prevailing in the state.

He also talked to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Aditiyanath.

During the conversation with Adityanath, a list of 400 labourers from UP, who are in various districts in Rajasthan, was shared with the Governor and he directed the district collectors to ensure medical assistance and food supply to all such people.
