Citizen Mamata Banerjee Wants Lockdown Gone “2 Weeks After May 4”

Kolkata : A hundred per cent removal of lockdown two weeks after May 4 — that tops the the wishlist of Mamata Banerjee as a citizen and the chief of Trinamool Congress. Asked about her opinion on the lifting of the lockdown four days before the video-conference with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Bengal Chief Minister today said she would “share opinion only when asked (by the Prime Minister)”.

“As a citizen and TMC chief, I want lockdown to be scaled back,” Ms Banerjee told NDTV. The lifting of the lockdown, she added, should be done in three stages.

“Lift 25 per cent of lockdown in week beginning May 4, reopen 50 per cent in second week after May 4, and 100 per cent roll back should happen in two weeks after May 4,” she said.
