What has PM Modi said about the Complete Lockdown in India?
On 20 April, in his name address to the country, PM Modi made it clear that the government does not want to impose lockdown from anywhere. PM Modi had said that in the present situation, we have to save the country from lockdown. He had been told that I would also request the states to use lockdown as the last option. Have to try hard to avoid lockdown.
Do not impose lockdown, take restrictive measures
The Union Home Ministry has asked the state governments and union territories not to lockdowns across the state to reduce corona infection. Instead, take restrictive measures in districts and where the impact of the second wave is more.
What is PIBFactCheck?
