Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be once again addressing the nation and this is scheduled tonight at 8 PM. This update came a day after Modi held a video conference with Chief Ministers of all the states.
The third phase of lockdown imposed by the Centre will end in another five days i.e, on May 17th. PM Modi’s address is likely to have something about the lockdown. But from the New Delhi sources we hear that there is no clarity on lockdown extension.
Yesterday during the conferences with CMs, it was a mixed feedback Modi received on lockdown. A few states want the lockdown to be extended while a few states wanted relaxations and exemptions. There are also reports that states have asked for permission of inter-state transport.
Many industrialists and companies have urged the Centre to relax the lockdown norms in Green and Orange zones.
So with many suggestions, PM Modi is expected to make announcements and people of India will be eagerly waiting for an update on lockdown.
