Just week before lockdown 3.0 ends, PM Modi to holding a meeting with all CMs on Monday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold a meeting tomorrow at 3 p.m. through a video conference with the Chief Minister of State, the Prime Minister's Office tweeted. 

 

This will be PM Modi's fifth meeting with the chief ministers since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

The Home Minister, Health Minister, Chief Secretary, Home Secretary, Health Secretary and DGP have been requested to attend, reports News18.

Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba held a video conference with Chief Secretaries and Secretaries of Health of all states and territories of the union earlier today.

Sources said the meeting's agenda would be a lockdown discussion which is expected to end on May 17. Many states have raised objections to the rules governing the marking of red, green and orange zones, saying that with the return of migrants, as the number of cases in districts increases, most districts will come under the red zones which might complicate a return to normalcy.

The previous video conference between the PM and the CMs took place on 27 April, after which the national lockdown was extended for two weeks beyond 3 May.

Today, India's Covid-19 tally recorded 62,939 cases with the death toll rising to 2,109 while 19,357 people were recovered.
