Last night at 8 pm, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation for the fifth time since the outbreak of COVID-19. He stated that Lockdown 4.0 will be in a new form with new rules and guidelines, which will be announced before May 18. He also announced a special economic relief package for the nation worth Rs 20 lakh crore, about 10 percent of our GDP. PM Modi pitched for local products, Atmanirbhar Bharat and also spoke about Self Retail India, following which, celebs such as Shahid Kapoor and Arjun Rampal supported it.
