The Prime Minister also said, he is  very pained by the misbehaviour of some people against doctors, airlines crew and staff of essential services who are at the forefront of combating coronavirus. Mr. Modi said the stern action will be taken against the guilty.


The Prime Minister added that doctors and nurses are incarnations of God and they are endangering themselves to save  people and they should be  respected.  Mr. Modi also urged  people to help poor in this hour of crisis and promise themselves  to help nine  poor families everyday for the next 21 days.

The Prime Minister said, in  this hour of crisis, Kashi can lead the people, can teach the country patience, compassion and peace.
