PM Modi to meet state Chief Ministers Monday,11 May 2020 through video conferencing.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold a meeting with the State Chief Ministers through video conferencing tomorrow afternoon. He will review country’s progress in containing the coronavirus pandemic.
Discussion on further relaxations to boost up economic activities is likely to take place. The meeting will also be attended by Home Minister Amit Shah, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharman and Health Minister Harsh Vardhan including other senior officials.
Official correspondent reports it will be the Prime Minister’s fifth video conference with the Chief Ministers since the announcement of nationwide lockdown in March. As the country enters into the last week of its third phase of lockdown, the meeting is very crucial in terms of finalising the roadmap ahead.
In his monthly radio address ‘Mann ki Baat’ last month, Prime Minister said the country is in the middle of a war and asserted that people have to continue being careful and take precautions.
His note of caution came amidst gradual exemptions being granted by the Centre and States to revive economic activities. Few state governments demand regarding revisiting the idea of demarcating red, orange and green zones is high on the table.
Decision over measures to further boost up economic activities and address migrant worker issues is as well on the agenda of this meeting. Prime Minister’s this meet yet again stamps his belief of inclusive decision making where views of all stakeholders are necessarily considered.
