PM to decide as several states ask to extend lockdown
“The decision to continue the lockdown should be taken on a national level,” said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. “If the states decide the length of the lockdown on their own, then the fight against the coronavirus won’t be effective,” he said.
Odisha and Punjab have already extended the lockdown toll April 30 while many other states have said they want to. Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh told Modi that there is huge uncertainty over the incidence rate of the disease and that the nation is in for a long fight.
