PM indicates lockdown could be lifted in phases

Apr 06, 2020 23:33 IST

Indicating a phased opening of the ongoing lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday asked Union ministers to prepare a ‘graded plan’ to slowly open departments in areas that have not emerged as hotspots of the Covid-19 pandemic. Modi made this suggestion while chairing a meeting of the council of ministers via video-conferencing. Talking about the impact on the economy, the prime minister said that the government must work on war footing to mitigate the impact. According to an official statement Modi told the ministries that they should prepare a business continuity plan.
