On Thursday, Uttar Pradesh government decided to enforce lockdown in the state starting 10 p.m. on Friday, July 10, till 5 a.m. on Monday, July 13.

The state government has re-imposed the lockdown in a bid to berak the chain of transmission of Covid-19.

Priyanka Gandhi, who has been critical of the Uttar Pradesh government has been attacking the Yogi government in the state over the number of issues like law and order situation, handling of Covid-19 pandemic, transportation of migrant labourers, etc.
