Bhopal: Amid rising COVID-19 cases, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Monday informed that the Madhya Pradesh government has instructed the team to discuss night curfew.

"I have instructed the team to discuss night curfew and other things. Relevant departments will prepare for a meeting which will be held tomorrow. We have issued some instructions and will take few more steps if needed," the Chief Minister told reporters when asked about rising COVID-19 cases.
