Fact Check: Is govt planning to impose strict lockdown in Delhi from June 18?

Team Udayavani, Jun 15, 2020, 12:05 PM IST

Amid  Covid-19, Rumours have been circulating on social media platforms about another strict lockdown in Delhi

The viral message claims, “ Home ministry sources confirming Delhi NCR complete lockdown from 18th June for 4 weeks. This time it’s going to be very strict. No one will be allowed out. President’s rule in Delhi. Everyone, please do all necessary work which involves movement of paper, file, computer, etc ASAP before Delhi gets lockdown”

Taking to Twitter, PIB Fact Check has declared news of an impending lockdown in the country as fake.

The tweet said, “ Claim: A  message on Facebook claiming strict #Lockdown from 18th June. PIBFactCheck: It’s #Fake. There is no such plan under consideration. Please beware of rumour mongers”

Last month, the Centre under ‘Unlock 1’ has issued several guidelines for gradual reopening of malls, temples and offices.
