Mumbai, (The States. news) Noted actor and politician Paresh Rawal has raged against the Maharashtra government’s decision to close down gyms, even though restaurants, bars and cinemas are allowed to operate at 50% capacity. Taking to twitter, the veteran actor has questioned the logic of this decision.

“Trains n Theatres n Bars n Restaurants etc are allowed to remain open with 50% capacity BUT NOT GYMNASIUM !!!
