Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to speak on the next phase of lockdown from June 1 that may come into force after Lockdown 4.0 ends on May 31.

PM Modi will be addressing the nation on May 31 on his radio programme Mann Ki Baat. It is also the last day of Lockdown 4.0 and sources say PM Modi may throw some light on Lockdown 5.0.

Sources said PM Modi in his address will emphasise on the lockdown spirit and also announce measures on easing of restrictions in most parts of the country.

LOCKDOWN 5.0 TO FOCUS ON 11 CITIES

According to sources in the home ministry, Lockdown 5.0 will manly focus on 11 cities with 70 per cent of the total coronavirus cases in India.

Lockdown 5.0 from June 1 is expected focus on the prominent cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune, Thane, Indore, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Surat and Kolkata.

The most-affected cities that have contributed 60 per cent of the total 1.51 lakh coronavirus cases in the country so far are Ahmedabad, Delhi, Pune, Kolkata and Mumbai.

EASING OF RESTRICTIONS

The Centre may also consider allowing religious places to be reopen in Lockdown 5.0 but with certain conditions, which will mean no religious events can be conducted in this period, including fairs and festivals. There will be no mass congregations. Wearing mask and social distancing will also be made mandatory in the religious places.

Karnataka government has requested PM Modi for the reopening of all religious places from June 1 and written a letter to the PMO.

After salons were allowed to reopen in Lockdown 4.0 guidelines, now gyms may also be allowed to be open in all zones except containment zones.

However, no educational institutes will be allowed to open, including schools and colleges. Malls and cinema halls are also likely to remain shut in the coming days.

Marriages and funerals will continue to witness limited number of guests.

Enough of your Mann Ki Baat. Just step down and let some else take over. Why Covid is increasing day by day in India? Guess the answer is the BJP's doesn't give a damn bout the poor people's.
