Capt suggests extension of national lockdown at PM meet; lists measures for immediate relief

A day after Punjab extended the curfew till May 1, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Saturday recommended extension of the national lockdown by at least a fortnight, while suggesting a slew of health and relief measures to the people in the state’s COVID-19 battle, in addition to special concessions for industry and agriculture sectors on an urgent basis.

Participating in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s video-conference with all Chief Ministers, Amarinder pointed out that there was huge uncertainty about the likely incidence of disease and the nation was in for a long fight.
