PM Modi’s appeal
It may be mentioned that yesterday, PM had urged people to light diyas or candles on Sunday to show India’s collective determination to fight against the darkness of coronavirus.
“On 5th April, at 9 pm, I need your 9 minutes. At 9 pm, turn off all the lights in your houses and light a Diya, candle, torch or flashlight for 9 minutes at your doors, or balcony,” Modi said.
PM further said that this will send out a message that nobody among the 130 crore Indians is alone in this fight against the virus.
