India Fights Corona: PM Narendra Modi urges people not to leave their houses in lockdown

@narendramodi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged people not to leave their houses in lockdown districts and states and follow instructions in fight against COVID-19. In a series of tweets,  Mr Modi cautioned people against complacency.

Prime Minister has lauded the people for showing their gratitude to Corona warriors like doctors, nurses and sanitation workers. People across the country came out of their homes and on their balconies at 5 pm yesterday to clap, clang utensils and ring bells to express solidarity.

In a series of tweets, Mr Modi said, the nation thanks every citizen who is leading the fight against Coronavirus. Prime Minister said, this is just a beginning of nation's victory march in a long battle against COVID-19. As the clock struck five, people came out in balconies, lawns and terraces, to express gratitude to doctors, nurses and others working continuously to combat Covid 19.

The country also observed an unprecedented 'Janta Curfew' to control the spread of the deadly virus. Influencers and achievers from various fields and several organisations also voiced their support to the Janata Curfew.

In his address to the nation on Thursday evening, Mr Modi had urged citizens to help the government in fighting the pandemic and had asked citizens to observe Janta curfew on Sunday from 7 am to 9 pm. The janta curfew, as Prime Minister explained, was a curfew observed by the janta and for the janta.
