While the country is observing the 21-day lockdown, the Prime Minister once again addressed the nation in a video message on April 03, 2020.
In a fresh message to the public at 9 AM today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi once again commended the public support during lockdown and urged them to continue the same.
“Whether it is people’s curfew, ringing bells, clapping hands or clanging plates; they have all made the nation realize its collective strength in these testing times. It has led to the deepening of the belief that the nation can unite as one in the battle against Corona. This collective spirit of yours, of the nation, can be seen manifesting itself during these times of lockdown,” PM said.
This time, Modi also urged the citizens to perform another special act on April 05, 2020.
After clapping to the efforts of staff working on ground earlier, now it’s time to light your candles to fight the darkness created by Coronavirus.
PM Narendra Modi’s Video Message on April 03, 2020
This is exactly what PM said in his video address on April 02, 2020.
“On the 5th of April, on Sunday, I want 9 minutes from all you, at 9PM. Listen carefully, on the 5thof April, at 9 PM, turn off all the lights in your homes, stand at your doors or in you balconies, and light candles or diyas, torches or mobile flashlights for 9 minutes. I repeat, light candles or diyas, torches or mobile flashlights, for 9 minutes at 9 PM on the 5th of April,” PM Narendra Modi said.
He called on public to come together to challenge the darkness spread by the corona crisis, introducing it to the power of light.
“On this 5th of April, we must awaken the superpower of 130 crore Indians. We must take the super resolve of 130 crore Indians to even greater heights,” he added.
He further urged the public not to come out or assemble anywhere while participating in this program.
“Please do not go out on to the roads, lanes or your localities, do it at the doorstep or balconies of your own homes. One must never cross the ‘Lakshman Rekha’ of Social Distancing. Social Distancing should not be breached under any circumstances. This is the only panacea to break the chain of Corona virus,” PM added.
May the strong will of the Prime Minister and the superpower of light to be lit by the crores of Indians fight the evil of Coronavirus.
