DECISIONS BEING TAKEN ON LOCKDOWN: CHECK OUT SUGGESTIONS OF DIFFERENT CMs

Published

on

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called a meeting of the chief ministers of all the states on Saturday April 10 at 11am to decide the fate of the lockdown and whether the services will be restored to normal from April 14 or India will be under an extended lockdown.

A popular notion among the CMs seems to be that the 21 days lockdown should be extended for at least 2 more weeks because the number of infected people from the COVID-19 doesn’t seem to be coming to a pause.

The Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal was the first minister to bring forth the idea of extending the lockdown to April 30. “The decision to continue the lockdown should be taken at a national level. If the lockdown is eased, all kinds of transport, either rail or road, should not be allowed,” Mr Kejriwal said. Delhi ranks third in the number of cases of coronavirus, following Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra.

Chief Ministers of Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra sided with him from the beginning and according to the latest update 10 out of the 11 chief ministers have advised in favour of extending the lockdown too.

Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said the pandemic that originated from China in December “is the biggest threat that the human race has faced in more than a century”. “Life will not be the same ever,” Mr Patnaik stated on Thursday.

In the meeting, the Prime Minister also says how people should make masks out of old clothes at home if not able to procure actual masks and was himself seen covering his mouth with a gamcha during the meeting.

The ministers are still in meeting and deliberating over the best course of action.
