- With the focus on boosting economic activities amid a graded exit from the coronavirus-induced lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with chief ministers of various states via video conference on Monday afternoon.
This will be his fifth interaction with the chief ministers after the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in the country.
- The Prime Minister’s Office said the video conference will begin at 3 PM on Monday.
Sources in the government said the focus of the meeting would be on boosting economic activities and pushing efforts to convert ‘red’ zones with high COVID-19 case load into ‘orange’ or ‘green’ zones.
The number of COVID-19 infections has more than doubled since the prime minister interacted with the chief ministers last on April 27 — from just over 28,000 cases to nearly 63,000 cases.
