Hyderabad: A decision on imposing a lockdown in Hyderabad and neighbouring districts will be taken by Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao only after extensive consultations, Health Minister Etela Rajender said here on Monday.

“Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao recognises the fact that lives of people matters and it is very important to avoid fatalities due to Covid-19. The Chief Minister is keenly following coronavirus developments across the country,” he said.

“Before deciding to impose a lockdown, we should also realise that trains, flights and even inter-state transport are operational unimpeded. A cabinet meeting also needs to be held. The Chief Minister is expected to take a call only after extensive consultations,” the minister added.
