Yesterday, Prime Minister had video conferencing with Chief Ministers regarding the ongoing coronavirus situation in the country.
“We have a twofold challenge – to reduce the transmission rate of the disease, and to increase public activity gradually, while adhering to all the guidelines, and we will have to work towards achieving both these objectives”, he said in the meeting.
Prime Minister further said now the effort should be to stop the spread of the COVID-19 to rural areas. He said the new way of life would be on the principle of “Jan Se lekar Jag Tak”, from an individual to the whole of humanity.
