Addressing the nation after much anticipation for days as the nationwide Lockdown imposed for 21 days comes to an end today; Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced extension of the complete Lockdown of the country till May 3.
This announcement has led to a cheap debate of whose suggestions among Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy did Modi consider.
Jagan during a video conference meeting on Saturday morning suggested Lockdown should be limited to only those areas that have seen a spread of the virus, referred to as 'containment areas or red zones'.
On the contrary, KCR said Lockdown should be extended for two more weeks without giving relaxations to any sectors, except for agriculture.
Coming to the point, Modi is not PM either for Andhra Pradesh or for Telangana. He considers the suggestions proposed by all the CMs of the country and also takes suggestions from health department and other experts. Thus, it’s not the win of either of the CMs.
As per Modi’s announcement, relaxations will be given to few sectors from April 20th and new guidelines will be announced tomorrow.
