New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the nation at 4 pm on Tuesday, the PMO said in a tweet. This would be Modi’s sixth address to the nation since the outbreak of the pandemic.
The PMO’s tweet came shortly after the government announced that it was banning 59 mobile phone apps linked to China that it said were prejudicial to India’s sovereignty, defence, security and public order.
It’s unclear what the PM will be talking about but his address comes on the day when Unlock 1 will be ending and Unlock 2 begins 1 July.
Modi’s address to the nation also comes two days after his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ radio broadcast where he outlined steps taken recently for economic liberalisation under the Atmanirbhar Bharat package whereby the government opened up coal mining and space exploration for private players.
