It is a bit “too long”. That is what political strategist Prashant Kishor thinks of the 21-day lockdown called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the wake of the novel coronavirus outbreak across the country.

Predicting “tough days ahead”, he tweeted on March 25: "Decision to lockdown India maybe right but 21 days might a bit too long. But then this is the price one pays for being behind the curve. With the shaky preparedness to deal with the CovidCrisis and very little to safeguard the poor, we could be staring at some tough days ahead (sic)."
