Bengaluru: Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa on Sunday said that he will announce a second package to the affected due to lockdown and also final decision about extension of lockdown beyond June 7.

Speaking to reporters here, he said that the Government had announced a Rs. 1,250 crore special package for some sections of the people, which was criticised by the Opposition as not sufficient.
