June 29, 2020: Prime Minister 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.

Its unclear what the PM will be talking about but his address comes on 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.

Modi's address to the nation also comes two days after his 'Mann Ki Baat' radio broadcast where he outlined steps taken recently for economic liberalisation under the Atmanirbhar Bharat package whereby the government opened up coal mining and space exploration for private players.
