Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has clarified that there will be no lockdown in Assam.

“NO LOCKDOWN IN ASSAM,” Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said.

The Assam chief minister was reacting several rumours that are doing the rounds in the social media that fresh lockdown may get imposed in the state.

Rubbishing the rumours, Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma said: “It has come to my notice that some unscrupulous elements are spreading rumours about re-imposition of lockdown. Such rumours are totally baseless.”

Earlier, Assam health minister Keshab Mahanta had said that the state government is mulling to implement fresh curbs after the state recorded marginal rise in COVID-19 cases post Durga Puja celebrations. 

Mahanta informed that the state government will consider implementing fresh restrictions if the rise in COVID-19 cases doesn’t decline in the coming days.

But never was it mentioned that the Assam government is mulling to re-impose lockdown in the state, as some of the unscrupulous elements are spreading rumours.
