    PM Modi holds meeting via VC with CMs of 21 states, UTs

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday held a meeting through video conferencing, with Chief Ministers of 21 states and union territories. Here are some highlights from his meeting:

    • 2 weeks have passed since Unlock 1, our experience during this time could be beneficial for us in the future. Today I will get to know ground reality from you, your suggestions will help in chalking out future strategy.
    • In the last few weeks, thousands of Indians returned to India from abroad & hundreds of migrant workers reached their home towns. Almost all modes of transport have resumed operations, still COVID-19 impact has not been that huge in India as in other parts of the world.
    • The recovery rate has gone above 50% in India. 
    • For us the death of even 1 Indian is unsettling but it is also true that India is one of the countries where there have been the least deaths due to COVID-19.
    • To even think of stepping out without a mask or face cover is not right at present. ‘Do gaj ki doori’, hand-washing and use of sanitisers is of utmost importance. With markets opening and people stepping out, these precautions are even more important.
    • When India's fight against COVID-19 will be analysed in the future, this time will be remembered for how we worked together and served as an example of cooperative federalism. 
    • Because of the efforts made in the last few weeks, green shoots have begun to be visible in our economy.
