New Delhi. The last time the corona virus started spreading its foot in the country, the government’s decision to lockdown was severely criticized. But this time the pressure on the government is being increased from outside. This is increasing pressure on the government to consider the lockdown. However, all states from PM Modi to the government have been advised to avoid lockdown.
The country has seen how the economy collapses with the lockdown, but this time it has started demanding from the industry itself. The country’s largest industry chamber, CII, has also urged the government to take steps to limit economic activities on a large scale to reduce the suffering of common people in the country. CAIT, an organization of small traders and retailers in the country, has already supported the lockdown.
A survey conducted by the Confederation of All India Traders (CAT) has claimed that 67.5 per cent of the people have advocated for a nationwide lockdown as it was last year. People believe that the corona will not be stopped without it. CAT National President BC Bhartia and National General Secretary Praveen Khandelwal said that 9,117 people of Delhi and the country have expressed their opinion in the survey. 78.2 percent people have said that Corona has become uncontrollable in the country. 67.5 percent people have advocated for simultaneous lockdown across the country.
73.7 percent have believed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is capable of dealing with the Corona epidemic, while 82.6 percent of the people nominated one Union Minister in charge of Delhi and suggested to deal with Corona, Khandelwal said that every day from Corona across the country More than four lakh people are getting infected and medical system is not available in this proportion, which needs to be fixed immediately. As such, national lockdown is the only option, preventing the corona epidemic from escalating.
In an order issued on Sunday night, the Supreme Court asked the central government to consider the option of lockdown keeping in mind the public interest so as to prevent the spread of corona virus. On the preparations of the government on the Corona case, the Supreme Court has said that we seriously urge the central and state governments to consider banning any kind of crowd gathering or super spreader celebrations. They may also consider a lockdown to prevent the expansion of the second wave of viruses, keeping the general public’s interest in mind. Experts believe that by making such a suggestion, the Supreme Court has made the way easier for the government to decide on the lockdown.
However, the Central Government is not yet contemplated to do the lockdown. At the beginning of last month, when the second wave of Corona was rapidly engulfing the entire country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also said in his address that the lockdown should be the last option.
