Answering a question asked by a journalist, Sonowal said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would take the needful decision whether the ongoing nationwide lockdown would be extended or withdrawn and the State government had nothing to do with the matter. Yet Modiji would discuss the issue with governments of all the States soon in this regard, he added.
