Actor Rajinikanth today voiced his support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Janata Curfew that is scheduled for tomorrow.
The Janata Curfew is to ensure that the Corovid19 pandemic does not move to stage 3 in India. It is at present, in Stage 2, in the country.
Rajinikanth, who tweeted both a video and his statement on the issue, said, “With the Prime Minister calling for Janata curfew on March 22nd, India prepares to avoid crucial Stage 3 community transmission of Corona virus in the country.
“Italy tried implementing similar nationwide curfew to prevent stage 3, but duee to the lack of support from the citizens, the efforts failed, resulting in the death of thousands of people to the pandemic. We don’t want such a crisis in India and I urge everyone to rise to the occasion and participate in the Janata curfew by strictly staying indoors and practising social distancing.
“In these crucial times, let us also remember and thank the selfless service of all the doctors, nurses and medical workers by participating in the nationwide appreciation and prayers at 5 pm tomorrow. Thank you.”
