A fake tweet was doing the rounds on social media in the name of Shah that read, "Fixed Line Broadband and Mobile Internet services to be snapped in the UT J&K and Ladakh from tonight."

MHA said that based on the feedback of States and UTs, a decision on the re-opening of these institutions will be taken in July.

A large number of Indian Tablighi Jamaat workers were also involved in the activities of the organisation in different parts of the country.

The nationwide lockdown, which was imposed to contain coronavirus spread, is scheduled to end on May 31.

The minister also shared Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla's letter to chief secretaries of all states in this regard. Bhalla stated that the home ministry has received requests from state governments and the CBSE for conducting the board examinations.

The letter pointed out that private clinics and nursing homes are also reported to have not been allowed to be open.

The MHA also informed that the Government of India has given the permission to evacuate Indians stranded abroad.

The workers were demanding that they should be sent back to their native places. "We did not get our salary since March. We don't have money left," a worker said.

MoR will issue detailed guidelines for sale of tickets, and for social distancing and other safety measures to be observed at train stations, train platforms and within the trains.

The caregivers are exempted under Social sector clause 8(i), the prepaid mobile connection facilities are exempted under clause 11(v), and the food processing units are exempted under clause 13(i), as per the guidelines.
