On Wednesday, April 14, as the Maharashtra government imposed stricter lockdown norms, netizens took to Twitter to share an array of memes that are poking fun at how the state is actually in a lockdown, even though the Chief Minister has not used the specific word for the restrictions per se.


With Mumbai’s civic body, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation announcing that household help will be allowed to travel from April 14 to April 30, all businesses, public spaces, activities and services will remain closed, except for essential services that will remain open between 7 am and 8 pm on working day whereas restaurants can operate but only for deliveries. Shooting for films, serials and advertisements will remain closed, and only 25 people will be allowed at marriages.

On the other hand, students across the country also shared memes on social media as demands for cancelling CBSE Class 10, Class 12 board examinations has gained more momentum.



Moreover, students have been protesting against offline exams, urging authorities to address their concerns. Taking to social media platforms, students have argued that they too are at risk of getting infected with the coronavirus amidst the second wave of COVID-19. In addition, several students, along with parents have stated that if classes could be held online, so can examinations.

Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, actor Sonu Sood and Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra have also appealed to the Centre to cancel the examinations in a bid to contain the spread of the disease.
