The general movement of people coming from Chhattisgarh to Madhya Pradesh may be suspended. There will be no restriction on commuters from these states for necessary work, but after their medical examination, there will be a system to keep them in isolation. This will be helpful in preventing spread of infection. Chief Minister Chouhan said that these measures will continue to be implemented till the infection stops.

System of limited lockdown

Livelihood of the poor must not be affected.

New slogans will be helpful

Chief Minister Chouhan said that he is confident that citizens will be safe through self-discipline and will control Corona.
Political parties should extend support
