Mr. Narendra modi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to hold marathon meetings with chief ministers on Tuesday and Wednesday to review strategies to tackle covid and to decide on extent of economic activity to be allowed in future.

Modi will on Tuesday meet the chief ministers and top officials of 21 states and Union territories, which account for only 5% of total cases in India. His second meeting, by contrast, is with the chief ministers of a handful of states that not only account for the most covid-positive cases but have also been hit by the exodus of daily wage workers.

Tuesday’s meeting will be attended by representatives of six Union territories, North Eastern states and Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh, among others, according to a list shared by the Prime Minister’s Office last week. The worst affected of these states are Assam, which has a total of 4,000 total cases, Punjab with over 3,000 cases, and Kerala with over 2,400 cases.

The second round of Modi’s meeting will cover states worst hit by covid and those that have been hit by returnee migrants
