Bringing India back on track

Bringing India back on track

AN informal group of Union Ministers has been brainstorming on the issues arising out of the nationwide lockdown to counter the coronavirus outbreak and exploring the possible next steps and options after the 21-day period ends April 14. “This (nationwide lockdown) cannot continue for an indefinitely long period. But it also doesn’t appear advisable to lift it from everywhere in one go,” said a source aware of the deliberations in the informal group headed by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh. The committee met for the third time on friday and is likely to meet early next week again. It is learnt that the group may be in a position to make up its mind only after looking at the corona numbers — rate of growth of new cases, extent of the spread — by April 10.
