In order to spread awareness and make all the citizens a little more patient, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra, addressed the nation a while ago and shared his two cents on the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has taken the globe by storm. Narendra Modi, in his speech, announced a ‘Janta (public) Curfew’ on March 22, that is, the coming Sunday from 7 am to 5 pm. The curfew isn’t applicable for everyone who offers all the essential services like the police force, medical services, media, home delivery and fire fighting.
PM Modi further asked all the Indian citizens to gather at their doors/ balconies and clap or ring their bells at 5 pm to motivate everyone, who is contributing to providing us with all the basic services. This initiative by PM Modi has opened to a positive response with common people and celebrities across pouring in their support and asking all the Indians to oblige. Indian cricketers Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan, too, have come forth to hail PM Modi’s move.
In his tweet, the India skipper urged all his fans to follow the curfew as it’s for their own safety. He wrote, “Be alert, attentive and aware to combat the threat posed by the Covid 19. We, as responsible citizens, need to adhere to the norms put in place for our safety as announced by our Honourable Prime Minister Shri @NarendraModi Ji. #IndiaFightsCorona.” He added, “Also, special mention to all the medical professionals in the country and around the globe for all the efforts being put in to fight the #CoronaVirus. Let's support them by taking care of ourself and everybody around us by maintaining good personal hygiene. #IndiaFightsCorona.”
