Narendra Modi on Coronavirus LIVE Updates: Addressing the nation on the coronavirus situation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced an economic package of Rs 20 lakh crore. He said that it is 10% of India's GDP. The PM added that it was for the MSMEs and the "honest taxpayers." "Starting tomorrow, the finance minister will apprise you in detail about the package meant to drive towards 'Atma-nirbhar Bharat Abhiyaan'. Also, the prime minister said that the lockdown would be extended for the fourth time. He said that the decision was taken after speaking to various chief ministers. The details of lockdown 4 will be released before May 18, the PM added.

Modi also described it as an unimaginable crisis. The PM says that self-reliance is the only way forward, but also does not mean a self-centrist approach. "We have to be stronger. We have to save ourselves and keep moving forward at the same time," he says, adding, "We have been hearing that 21st century will belong to India, but this is not just a dream but our responsibility too. But how to achieve it. The current world situation shows, there is only one way: self-reliant India".
