JAMMU, Mar 25: The announcement by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi for a 21-day nationwide complete lockdown to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country should be taken seriously by all the Indians and every citizen need to become a role model for others in fight against this deadly disease.
This was stated by Jammu and Kashmir BJP spokesperson, Balbir Ram Rattan, while making a fervent appeal to the people to strictly follow the precautions for 21 days so that the spread of virus is controlled.
To stress the urgency of his appeal for complete lockdown, the Prime Minister has tried to make people understand how precious life is by recalling a Hindi idiom which says ‘Jaan hai toh jahan hai (the world exists only when we live)’, which is very true, said Balbir.
“The first and most important thing advised by the Prime Minister against Corona is to practice strict social distancing for 21 days, which is not a difficult job and can prove to be effective in saving lives”, Balbir said and added that confining ourselves indoors, keeping vigil on the day to day health of family members and following advisories of doctors are for the best of each one of us.
The BJP spokesperson said that overwhelming response to one- day Janata curfew on March 22 on the call of Prime Minister proved that it is the will of an individual which makes him stand with others in times of crisis and that everyone wanted to contribute in defeating Corona. The people should display same will for 21 days and every single citizen must deem it his or her responsibility towards nation and humanity. One should become a role model and educate others about the dangerous implications in case Corona virus succeeds in spreading it tentacles.
Since Corona spreads exponentially, it is mandatory to break the chain and same can be done only through self control and self discipline, added Balbir Ram Rattan.
