Renowned author Chetan Bhagat took to social media and wrote, “While no details of #Lockdown4 yet, mood at the top is definitely shifting towards the economy. And if that’s how the top thinks, you can be sure soon the bottom shall follow. Bye Lockdowns. Hello economy. If I’ve been continuously writing about doing something big for the economy, and the government finally announces some steps to do that, it is disingenuous to not support the move. Awaiting details, and those will be analysed, but definitely step in right direction. 13 zeros in 20 lakh crores. Just FYI.”
PM Modi said that lockdown 4.0 will be very different from lockdown 1, 2 or 3. It is likely that public transport will resume depending on the situation of the states. The responsibility will be on the state governments to decide whether they want to start a movement or not.
