PM Modi has taken correct decision to extend lockdown: Kejriwal

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister
Narendra Modi has taken a correct decision to extend the nationwide
lockdown, Chief
Minister Arvind Kejriwal said after a video conference of chief ministers with the PM on Saturday.

However, there has been no official announcement of the extension of the 21-day nationwide lockdown, which ends on April 14, yet.

“PM has taken correct decision to extend lockdown. Today, India’s position is better than many developed countries because we started lockdown early. If it is stopped now, all gains would be lost. To consolidate, it is imp(ortant) to extend it,” Kejriwal tweeted.

Earlier, sources said Kejriwal had suggested the extension of the lockdown till April 30 during the interaction with the prime minister.

The Centre is considering a request made by most states to extend the ongoing nationwide lockdown by two more weeks beyond April 14, government sources said on Saturday after Modi’s interaction with chief ministers.

“Most states requested to extend the lockdown by two weeks and the Centre is considering the request,” a government source said.
