PM Narendra Modi to address the nation at 8 pm today
PM Narendra will be addressing the nation @ 8pm today.This addressing will be the 3rd addressing for the covid-19 pandemic situation.
The first announcement was in March 24, then announced its extension on April 14. Apart from this, the Prime Minister had also addressed the nation as he asked the country to observe one-day Janta Curfew in March to break the cycle of infection.The people are awaiting for the announcement if Lock Down 4.0 will be announced soon. In some major cities like Mumbai they are expecting to have cufew as the situation seems out of control.
Though we have started some routes to train and the international flights bring the people inside our country and make them reach to their destination, these are messed up.An indication of the lockdown would gradually be eased came when the Indian Railways opened bookings for passenger services with 15 trains a day from Tuesday connecting Delhi to Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Kolkata and other big cities.
Many labourers are found walking on the road for kilometers.Political parties, businesses and citizens say the lockdown has destroyed the livelihoods of millions that rely on daily wages for sustenance. Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Monday said the economic situation was “very bad” and the government would announce a financial package in a couple of days.
Sources suggest the focus of the meeting was to increase economic activities and to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic in containment zones as the lockdown 3.0 is set to end on May 17.
We hope the pandemic will end soon.
