    Green shoots have sprouted in the Indian economy over the past few weeks, since the country began easing restrictions after a lengthy coronavirus lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said.

    Addressing 21 chief ministers and lieutenant governors of Union territories on day one of a two-day meeting on Tuesday, Modi said the experience of the first two weeks of Unlock 1.0 will help the Union and state craft strategies for the future.

    “With the steps taken in the last few weeks, green shoots are now visible in the economy. Power consumption, which was earlier reducing, is increasing. Fertilizer sale in May this year has doubled since May last year. This time, kharif sowing is 12-13% more compared to last time," Modi said in his address, which was telecast online.

    Heads of the Union territories, the northeastern states, hill states such as Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh and opposition-ruled states including Punjab, Jharkhand, Kerala and Chhattisgarh attended Tuesday’s meeting.

    The meeting comes against the backdrop of the centre drawing flak from some quarters for its handling of the lockdown, with critics holding that while the restriction was necessary, it was unplanned and led to mass exodus from cities, and that the government’s ₹20 trillion stimulus package overlooked the plight of hapless migrant workers.
