PM Modi calls for a Janata Curfew (social boycott) on March 22

Dimapur, March 20 (NE): Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi addressed the nation on Thursday, March 19, 2020, where he called everyone to fight together against Covid-19. He urged that on coming Sunday, March Twenty Two, let every one stay indoors for safety from the pandemic, Covid19. In his short speech, with millions throughout India and abroad listening and watching from various mediums, he addressed the people and asked everyone to stand together in such times like this.

In his speech, he called the citizens of the country to have a social boycott and said: “There will be a ‘Janata Curfew’ (social boycott) on March Twenty Two. People should not come out of their houses from 7 am to 9 pm”. Then PM Modi has advised veterans (above 60 years of age) to avoid venturing out of their home. “Please stay at home for next few weeks.” PM Modi advised people to come out of their homes only if it was absolutely necessary, and to create Social distancing, which is very important to stop spreading the infection.

PM Modi also advised citizens to avoid crowded places. “There is no vaccine for Coronavirus as of now” said PM Modi: “It will be wrong to assume that India will remain unaffected from global pandemic of Coronavirus”. PM Modi said “Role of citizens is important in combating Coronavirus” and added that the government is watching the situation closely.

Therefore, Nagaland would see a change in the system too. Already, the Government of Nagaland has issued various directives from different Government Departments, which included many of the citizens to be not allowed entering the offices. In some cases, as per media reports, the said Department have given contact numbers so as the public can be in touch through telephonic conversation or through Whatsapp. Perhaps in the coming days we will see empty streets and roads as it is a very serious matter of concern for all.
