A political controversy has erupted over West Bengal’s bi-weekly lockdown. In the wake of a rapid rise in COVID-19 cases in Bengal, the state government has announced that this week’s bi-weekly lockdown will be imposed on July 23 and 25. The administration has decided to impose a twice-a- week lockdown in the state till August to stem the rise in COVID-19 cases. The state’s caseload rose to 47,030 and death toll mounted to 1,182 till Tuesday. Meanwhile, the BJP has questioned the West Bengal govt over why there is no lockdown on Friday. So, we raise the following questions: What is the logic behind bi-weekly lockdown? Bengal’s lockdown tokenism or effective? How were lockdown days picked? Watch as TMC MP, Derek O’Brien respond to these questions.
