Lockdown-5 will be implemented in Madhya Pradesh and the lockdown period will be extended till June 15.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said in a statement that the lockdown cannot be fully opened given the current conditions, so the government has decided that the lockdown period will be extended till June 15. However, what will be the guidelines regarding this, it will be clear in the coming one or two days. Actually, the period of lockdown-4 ends on 31 May.

After that, questions were arising whether the lockdown period would be extended or whether everything would be opened in a normal way. During these speculations, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has now clarified that the lockdown in Madhya Pradesh will be extended till June 15. While the state government has taken this decision due to the ever increasing case of Corona.

At the same time, big cities like Bhopal and Indore are still in the grip of Corona, so the government does not want to take any risk by ending the lockdown completely. The government will take a meeting of the Crisis Management Committee before taking any decision and based on the suggestions received in it, a blueprint of lockdown5 will be prepared. It is also believed that instead of bringing the entire city affected by the Corona epidemic under their purview, strict lockdown can be enforced in areas where more cases are still being received continuously.

Decision to open school after June 13

In the midst of lockdown, the question of when the children’s schools will finally be opened also remains. While Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan while addressing the school children while transferring the amount of Mid Day Meal Scheme, has said that keeping in view the current situation in the state,

it has been decided to open the school after June 13, but if the situation is not normal, then the decision to open the school can also be postponed. So far there has been no official statement from the Central Government regarding any lockdown. Earlier it has been cleared that the lockdown in Madhya Pradesh will now be till June 15.

Relaxations were given in the fourth phase. Now it has to be seen what further activities can be given further relaxation. It should be known that before the implementation of Lockdown 4 in the entire country, it was clear that the state governments according to their convenience, given the state of transition could make rules at their level.
