Join ‘Janata Curfew’ to make fight against coronavirus a success: PM Modi urges people

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday requested people to join the 'Janata curfew' to make the fight against the coronavirus a success. Modi had proposed a 'Janata curfew' on Sunday between 7 am and 9 pm as part of social distancing to check the spread of the deadly virus.

"In a few minutes from now, the #JantaCurfew commences. Let us all be a part of this curfew, which will add tremendous strength to the fight against COVID-19 menace," the prime minister wrote on Twitter.

He said the steps to be taken now will help in the times to come.

"Stay indoors and stay healthy," he said.

In his address to the nation on Thursday, Modi while calling for "resolve and restraint" to fight the coronavirus had asked the countrymen to observe a 'Janata curfew' on Sunday.
