On Friday morning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the citizens via a short video message in which he requested everyone to turn off their lights for 9 minutes at 9 PM on April 5 and light a candle or a diya or even use a flashlight of mobile phone to mark the country’s fight against coronavirus. We conducted a poll to know if people are in support of his initiative.
Within 1 hour of beginning the poll, 82% of people said that they are in support of this initiative while the rest 18% opposed it.
Even celebrities are in support of this initiative. Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel appreciated PM Modi and wrote, “Lighting Diyas is a very good gesture, diya creates an ethereal aura which is very calming and effective, to show each other our support let’s do this, I love how @narendramodi ji also focuses on our emotional needs and tries to heal us in every way …. Jai Shri Ram…”
Prasoon Joshi wrote penned a poem on the same and wrote in the caption, “Let’s support PM @narendramodi’s call to fight the darkness of disease and despair by igniting the light of hope in us. Dedicating my poem to this cause.”
