PM Narendra Modi will be addressing the nation on 30 June at 4 pm, said the Prime Minister's Office.
Modi's address will come in the backdrop of India banning 59 apps from China including TikTok, owned by ByteDance Ltd., citing privacy and security concerns amid worsening relations between the two neighbouring countries.
It's unclear what the PM will be talking about but his address comes the day when Unlock 1 will be ending and Unlock 2 begins 1 July.
The government on Monday night issued guidelines for the month-long 'Unlock 2' -- the "phased re-opening" of activities that had been barred to contain the coronavirus spread in the country -- and said educational institutions, Metro Rail services, cinema halls and gyms will continue to remain closed.
