Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday heaped praise on former India cricketers Yuvraj Singh and Mohammad Kaif after the two players urged people to follow the ‘Janta Curfew’ on March 22 as announced by the PM.
In order to combat the novel Coronavirus, PM Modi had on Thursday announced ‘Janta Curfew’ in the entire nation on Sunday, from 7 am to 9 pm — a step to avoid public gatherings and to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.
