Further lockdown in state likely


The Prime Minister’s clarion call for a Janata Curfew has turned out to be a big hit with more than what was expected. Not a single trace of men or women were visible except for one or two places wherein stray incidents of bikers coming on the road with families but were desisted by the traffic cops. With most of the people remaining indoor, streets wore a deserted look.

Meanwhile, the state government is making preparation to impose a further lockdown for a few more days to come. A decision to this effect may likely to be taken at a high-level meeting slated to be held at Pragati Bhavan under the leadership of Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao.

The CM will address the media at 5 pm after joining the applause programme as directed by PM Modi.
