96 hours, 38 meetings, focus on 5 states, PM Modi-Shah's action plan


The next strategy to prevent the Corona virus epidemic will be in 36 meetings within 96 hours. On Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi began meeting senior cabinet colleagues. Today, Home Minister Amit Shah will have an important meeting with Delhi Deputy Governor Anil Baijal and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Then on June 16, PM Modi will have video conferencing with 21 states and Union Territories. The next day will take input from the remaining 15 States and Union Territories and suggestions will be given. The 96-hour churn could lead to a two-month strategy.









Focus on five states in the review meeting





Prime Minister Modi on Saturday held a review meeting with senior administrative and health officials, including the home minister and health minister. "Two-thirds of the total cases we see are from five states, especially in the big cities," the PMO said in a statement. Given the challenges of working with the top of the daily cases, there was a discussion on optimizing testing as well as optimizing the number of beds and services. The Prime Minister continued to note the need for hospitals and isolation beds by city and district. He has directed the Ministries of Health in the States and Union Territories to work together for emergency planning.









Shah's meeting with Kejriwal in Delhi





Amit Shah and Arvind Kejriwal will meet at the Home Ministry today. State Disaster Management Authority (SDMA) officials will also be present. Dr. Randeep Guleria, Director, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS) will also attend the meeting. The condition of corona virus is very bad in Delhi. More than two thousand cases have been reported in the last two days. The situation in Delhi was also discussed at Saturday's review meeting. Stressing on coordination between the Center, the state and the MCD administration, the Prime Minister said that fighting together could defeat Corona.









The Prime Minister will hold discussions with the states for two days





The Prime Minister will hold talks with the States and Union Territories on June 16-17 after taking inputs from his colleagues. It is not possible to give time to 29 states and 7 union territories simultaneously, so they are divided into two groups. PM Modi may hold talks with the states on his preparations and further strategy at the meeting to be held through video conferencing. A separate plan will be prepared for the 5 states that have been identified. A separate briefing may be held for them at this meeting.

Unlock 2 or Lockdown 5.0?





The meeting will take feedback from the states on the Unlock 1 guidelines. One point cases may also rise. Corona's cases have increased since the lockdown was lifted. Some states have increased austerity. The rest of the states may also seek such directions from the Center. Rail services have not been fully restored, except for the Metro. If you decide to move on to Unlock-2, then these services can be started.
