The Chief Minister of the state K Chandrashekar Rao today urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to not revive the passenger train services which had been stopped as part of the preventive measures to contain spread of the coronavirus in the country.
He said that it would be difficult to track the movements of the coronavirus suspects and patients after the revival of the train services.
The CM also suggested that loans should be rescheduled, FRBM limits enhanced and migrant workers allowed to return to their native states.
KCR made these remarks during PM Modi's video conference with the Chief Ministers of all states of the country.
The CM also said that both the Centre and the various state governments were working in coordination to contain the spread of the coronavirus. He also said that the right decisions were taken at the right times, and that proper measures were put in place.
He exuded confidence that victory over the coronavirus was possible, and that he was hopeful that a vaccine for the coronavirus would be made available in India in the months of July or August, and that Hyderabad would produce it.
He also said that the coronavirus was not going to leave the people of the country now, and that the people should learn to live with the virus.
"We have to lead the people in this direction. We should remove the fear about the coronavirus from among the people. And we have to learn to live with the virus," he said.
He said that the Telangana government had taken all possible measures to contain the coronavirus.
"We are ready on the medical side. Equipment, medicines, masks, PPE kits, beds and all other necessary things are available, and as such there is no scarcity," he claimed.
