Prime Minister’s Address to Nation:
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going to address the nation on Tuesday 14th march 2020 at 10 AM. The 21 days’ lockdown is ending on 14th April and India has not seen any decrease in the growing figures of Corona patients who are being tested positive everyday. The total positive COVID-19 cases in India have reached a figure of 9152 and 308 people have lost their lives due to this deadly virus. Fortunately 857 people have won the battle of life against COVID-19 and have been discharged from hospitals after being tested negative.
Expectations from Modiji’s address to nation:
Prime Minister will address the nation on 10 AM on Tuesday, so it is expected that the lockdown will be extended for another 15 days. Speculations are being made about the changes that might be implemented in lockdown part-2.
Will it be different from first lockdown?
There are few signals indicating that if the second lockdown is implemented from 15th April, some changes in rules might be expected. Government might give relief to few sectors so as to ensure economy and normal life of people to be on track. In second lockdown it is expected that some businesses, farmers and daily wage labors might get some relief.
There sectors might be relieved in second lockdown:
- After the festival of Baisakhi, farmers will start cutting their crops. In this scenario some special trains and buses might be run for swiftly working of agricultural activities.
- Relief packages have already been announced, but in second phase of lockdown it is expected that there can be some announcements for daily wage laborers.
- To bring economy back on track, manufacturing units of necessary items might be relieved from lockdown.
Jaan Bhi Jahan Bhi…..
In first lockdown PM Modi said, “Jaan hai to Jahan hai“, but in recent meeting honorable Prime Minister emphasized on the slogan “Jaan Bhi Jahaan Bhi“, which is a clear indication that he might steadily bring life back to normal and might work to help people fulfill their necessities.
