Modi To Interact With CMs today
Third time in the past few days the prime Minister Narendra Modi is going to interact with the chief ministers of various stated today. He would discuss various issues with them regarding lock down, and it's consequences.
As per the speculations, the government of india is going to relax the complete lockdown and some exemptions would be given.
Reports suggest that the discussion could focus on "graded" exit from the lockdown which is in place till May 3. Some states are mulling extending lockdown beyond May 3 to curb spread.

On April 26, the prime minister said In " Mann ki baath" people have to continue being careful and take precautions. This caution can be seen in the backdrop of relaxation norms.
"I urge you not to get overconfident. You should in your over-enthusiasm not think that if the coronavirus has not yet reached your city, village, street or office, it is not going to reach now. Never make such a mistake. The experience of the world tells us a lot in this regard," he said. Modi previously interacted with the CMs on 20 March and 14 April and discuss on lockdown. Today he is going to speak at 11 AM with the chief ministers of the state. The Centre has now allowed neighbourhood and standalone shops, including those located in residential complexes, in urban areas to open during the lockdown. But those in the markets continue to remain shut till May 3. In rural areas, all shops, except those in shopping malls, are allowed to open. It's expected that most of the CMs would appeal the PM to give relaxation in lockdown and allow some sector of people like farmers to participate in their regular duties.
