Union minister Prakash Javadekar.

Union minister Prakash Javadekar on Monday said the government would announce its move on lockdown at the “right time”.

As only eight days are left until the end of the lockdown on April 14, the Minister said the government would take any decisions considering the interest of the people amid the Covid-19 crisis that has left 111 people dead and over 3,851 active cases across the country.

“We are monitoring the world situation every minute and therefore decisions are ultimately taken in the nation’s and people’s interests. That decision will be declared whenever the right time is there,” he said.

About the cabinet meeting, the first-ever held through video conferencing, Javadekar said Covid-related issues and experiences were shared among the ministers.
