Naina Lal Kidwai on #IndiaAgainstCOVID19 telethon, says lockdown can be eased in a phased manner:

- We have a list of hotspots, but if the green spots are safe we can feed the real estate and construction workers and have labour onsite, we may put them to work with proper regime. We can shut them if they violate rules, but we should at least begin. 

- If we turn to the list of essential services, I would like to see the IT sector to be considered as an essential service. In the past West Bengal, IT sector was always given the focus, because of outsourcing of services. we need to facilitate the norms like social distance, hygiene, testing etc and try to restart those.

- 50% of our back office operations in HSBC were working in India amid the SARS outbreak, we didn't shut down the services. We need to ensure critical services can be run.
