The Indian government has imposed a lockdown of 21 days in the country because of the coronavirus outbreak which has already infected more than 4000 people and taken lives of over 100 individuals in the nation.
The Indian Prime Minister has been addressing the Indian citizens time and again; last time when he addressed the nation, he asked everyone to switch off the lights of their houses on 5th April at 9 pm for 9 minutes and come out of their houses or in balconies and light diyas, candles or illuminate the area by torch or mobile flashlight. He carried out this initiative in order to make everyone feel that we are together in this battle and we will definitely overcome the darkness of corona.
He also clarified that no one should come out of the house and this exercise should be carried out in the houses among the family members only. However, there were some enthusiastic people who went on to celebrate mini Diwali by burning crackers.
Social media users slammed such people who burned crackers and Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma also took a jibe at them by saying that there is no need to celebrate as World Cup is still some time away.
Hitman took to Twitter and wrote, “Stay indoors India, don’t go out on the streets celebrating. World Cup is still some time away”.
Stay indoors India, don’t go out on the streets celebrating. World Cup is still some time away 🙏

The T20 World Cup 2020 is scheduled to take place in October in Australia; however, it will take place or not will depend on the situation prevailing in the world at that time as coronavirus has left the whole world in a state of shock. The IPL 2020 which was supposed to start on March 29 has been postponed till April 15 and there are very good chances of it getting cancelled or delayed further.
We also request our readers to listen to PM Modi carefully and don’t get over enthusiastic because one small mistake can bring a very big disaster in your life and it will also affect your loved ones in an adverse manner.
