The UP government has however debunked these messages. The government said that weekend lockdown news is being broadcast in UP on the social media and WhatsApp groups. The news is baseless and there is no plan to impose any type of lockdown in the state, it was further clarified.

Further the fact checking committee of the government has appealed to people to stop sharing such kind of news, which is misleading. Further UP Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath has said that a lockdown in the state is not an option.
