With the escalation of coronavirus cases in India, PM Narendra Modi, on Tuesday night, announced a complete lockdown of the country for the next three weeks. In his speech, PM Modi urged Indians to not to get out of their houses for the next twenty-one days, unless the situation is extremely urgent. Further, he also revealed that all the essential commodities like groceries, milk, medicines and hospitals will be available irrespective. However, a lot of people weren’t really clear as we saw hundreds of them gathering outside shops to stock up goods.
This didn’t go down well with TV actor Karan Patel, who took to his Instagram story to lash out at everyone violating the rules and creating an environment of panic all across. The picture shared by the Khatron Ke Khiladi 10 fame sees an ocean of people crowding the streets of Andheri West’s Four Bungalows and forming long queues outside the shops to buy commodities, contrary to PM Modi’s guidelines. It appears that the picture was taken from Karan Patel’s balcony and was indeed a disturbing sight to see.
In his caption, Patel slammed them by writing, “Andheri West, right now. F***king retards. Essential services will be made available during the lockdown too, stop behaving like animals during migration.”

In his speech, Modi said, “Seeing the present conditions, this lockdown will be for 21 days. This is to save India, save each citizen and save your family. Do not step outside your house. For 21 days, forget what is stepping outside. There is a Lakshman Rekha on your doorstep. Even one step outside your house will bring the coronavirus inside your house.” This move has opened to a great response and lauded by a lot of people, including celebrities.
