Price for being behind the curve: Prashant Kishor on 21-day lockdown

Poll strategist Prashant Kishor called the 21-day lockdown in the country to fight coronavirus a "bit too long" and predicted, "tough days ahead" in a tweet on Wednesday criticizing what he called "shaky preparedness" of the government to deal with the health crisis.

"Decision to lockdown India may be right but 21 days might a bit too long. But then this is the price one pays for being behind the curve. With the shaky preparedness to deal with the CovidCrisis and very little to safeguard the poor, we could be staring at some tough days ahead," Prashant Kishor tweeted.
