Taking stock of the prevailing situation in the country, Meghalaya CM, Conrad Sangma addressed the media.
Here are the key statements, he delivered:
Large gathering should not be permitted.
Travel restriction including inter-state movement should continue. Travel should be minimised.
Economic planning and support to States should be accorded priority by the central govt. Health infrastructure should be improved in the State; every State should have its economic plan keeping in mind its respective concerns.
GoI should allow States to decide on defining the zones and containment area.
Micro management of the situation is very important and each State should be allowed to take its own decisions.
Meghalaya has its Economic Task Force constituted. We are pushing for a regional economic zone and we seek Hon'ble PM's support to promote this.
Two different approach is being followed across the world — to close down or open; herd immunity, we are a big nation, different strategy will work at different levels, we need to think of a different strategy to combat this disease.
Elderly should be requested to remain indoors and we must protect our senior citizens. All States are having financial issues with debts and taxes. Therefore, financial support is required from the centre.
We must also prioritize and protect our senior citizens and keep them indoors.
