“There are rumours & media reports, claiming that the Government will extend the #Lockdown21 when it expires. The Cabinet Secretary has denied these reports, and stated that they are baseless,” it said.

The Press Information Bureau (PIB) of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting tweeted, saying Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba has denied media reports claiming that the government will extend the lockdown.

Following the lockdown, there has been a massive exodus of migrant workers from big cities to their villages after being rendered jobless.

As-IF they have it all under control
Even this golden oppurtunity is getting wasted as many states are still not interested in Force-Testing/Quarantine International travellers (Past 1-2 months) & the exponential rise of new COVID-19 cases never stopped

// India is still not testing enough people, having conducted the fewest number of tests of any country with confirmed cases of the coronavirus, at just 10.5 per million residents (South Korea, by contrast, has conducted more than 6,000 tests per million residents). That private laboratories are allowed to charge 4500rs ($60) per test—remember, just 500rs ($7) a month has been offered as income support for some residents—means significant barriers to confirmation and treatment remain in place. (The government argues that because of the size of the population, widespread testing is not feasible.) The authorities are also not meticulously contact tracing, people are fleeing isolation centers, and measures such as self-quarantines and social distancing are impractical in a country where much of the population lives in dense clusters in overcrowded megacities. Whereas the WHO recommends a ratio of one doctor for every 1,000 patients, India has one government doctor for every 10,000, according to the 2019 National Health Profile. A 2016 Reuters report noted that India needed more than 50,000 critical-care specialists, but has just 8,350. In short, the country’s health-care system is in no position to cope with an avalanche of patients with a contagious respiratory infection in the manner that China and Italy have been doing—India’s continued inability to deal with the epidemic of tuberculosis speaks to that struggle. //

They have realized already that just lock down won’t do anything. They will just let it go wild and take reactive measures. They have no clue as to how to go about testing as of now.

They don’t know anything other than creating problems for common men every now and then. Even in 2016 so many people died because of their stupid diktats.
Living under this govt means give all your money to govt and live your life Bhagwan Bharose.

They have to extend it as the cases will surely rise exponentially at the end of 21 days. There were many loopholes in this lockdown and they are continuing. We shall wait and see

the allocation in budget for medical facilities drastically reduced during last 7 years. the money went for making other projects like statues, clean ganga, swatch bharat etc.

Cabinet Secretary is sort of Secretary of Secretaries. Technically, the most powerful bureaucrat in the country.
