Taking to her social media handles, Lakshmi Manchu wrote, “Dear @telanganaCMO, with due respect, I would like to share my thoughts with you. I hope you consider our requests for a short lockdown in the state. We are losing lives like flies. I understand that this would adversely affect our economy but we need to save our people’s lives. This would be the only way to ease out the pressure on our frontline workers too (sic).”
