Even as Maharashtra announced a Janta Curfew, the finance minister while addressing a meeting with World Bank ruled out the possibility of a big lockdown in the nation.
"Even with the second wave, we are very clear that we are not going in for lockdowns in a big way. We don't want to totally arrest the economy. The local level isolation of patients, or households which have people in quarantines are the methods through which the crisis will be handled, the second wave will be handled. There shall not be lockdown," she said.
