The meeting of the Prime Minister with chief ministers of various states started at 11 AM on Saturday, April 10 and after 4 hours of deliberations, it seems that the government has finally reached a conclusive decision.
After the meeting, Arwind Kejriwal issued a statement praising the Prime Minister’s decision of extending the lockdown till April 30.
PM has taken correct decision to extend lockdown. Today, India’s position is better than many developed countries because we started lockdown early. If it is stopped now, all gains would be lost. To consolidate, it is imp to extend it
— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) April 11, 2020
Arwind Kejriwal was the first minister to advise in favor of extending the lockdown for 2 more weeks and was supported by 10 out of 11 ministers in the meeting.
We can surely say from this confirmation that ht earlier 21 days lockdown is now to be increased till April 30, though any statement from the Prime Minister’s office has not yet been received.
