Gauba said, “there is no such plan of extending the 21-day nationwide lockdown.”
“There are rumours & media reports, claiming that the Government will extend the #Lockdown21 when it expires. The Cabinet Secretary has denied these reports, and stated that they are baseless,” the tweet said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday ordered a 21-day lockdown to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
