Amid a sharply rising Covid curve, with migrant workers starting to crowd railway stations and bus terminals in scenes reminiscent of the days following last year's nationwide lockdown, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has reached out to industry associations and leaders of India Inc to reassure them that the government has no plan to impose another such lockdown, and will instead focus on creating small containment zones.

Sitharaman also conveyed to them that PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah were in touch with states, and were monitoring the situation regarding availability of oxygen, essential medicines and medical facilities.
