NEW DELHI, Apr 7: No official decision yet by the Centre on extension of the Lockdown beyond April 14 with Health Joint Secretary Lav Agarwal on Tuesday repeatedly asserting not to speculate in view of the Supreme Court ruling against any news not authenticated by the government.
On some states pressing for the extension amid expectations that the Lockout will be lifted in phases, he refused to get into debate, asserting that any speculation will create doubts in the public mind and won't help anyone, pleading not to harp on the speculation in the social media in the light of the Supreme Court's concern that one such speculation led to lakhs of migrant labourers coming out on road to reach homes.
The private TV channels are speculating on extension of the Lockout citing demand from some states and they even interpreted the Prime Minister's remark to the chief ministers two days ago as an indication that the Lockout will be lifted in phases and those still having the hotspots will have to continue with the Lockdown for some more days.
