At 8 pm on 19th March 2020, Thursday PM Narendra Modi appealed the nation to abide by the ‘Janata Curfew’. Janata Curfew will be observed on 22nd March 2020, Sunday from 7 am to 9 pm. The aim of the curfew is to promote the practice of staying home and avoid going to public places, so as to avoid the transmission of COVID-19.
During the curfew, the citizens have to stay at home for 14 hours and practice quarantine at home with family. “On March 22, from 7 am to 9 pm, all countrymen have to follow the Janata Curfew,” PM Narendra Modi said.
People working in services which are crucial to the citizens such as police, medical health services, media, home delivery, fire-fighting and those who are serving the nation etc. will not need to take part in the Janata Curfew.
Another request made by the PM was that all the people should come out in their balconies or terraces or doorways or windows at 5 pm for five minutes and clap hands or ring the bells in honour of millions of workers who have been directly serving the nation without caring about themselves in the past month via health services, airport services, and many others.
He has also urged people to inform the other 10 people and act as a responsible citizen by spreading awareness about the Janata Curfew and measures to prevent.
We at UdaipurBlog request all the Udaipurites to abide by Janata Curfew for the sake of our own self and family.
