A couple of weeks back, Telangana cinematography minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav said another lockdown is likely to be imposed in Hyderabad. He cited the alarming rise in the number of new coronavirus positive cases as the reason behind the possible imposition of lockdown.

However, Talasani took a completely different stand while speaking with the media today.

“There will be no more lockdowns in Telangana from now onwards. There is no use of lockdowns. The government of Telangana has ruled out this option,” he said.

Well, the number of coronavirus cases in Telangana has been rising at a rapid rate but the state government is against the imposition of another lockdown.

The state government had permitted film shootings as well but none of the notable production houses have resumed shootings till now.

Telangana reported 29,536 coronavirus positive cases to date. It will go past the 30,000 marks today.
