Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged people to gather together at 9PM on 5th April to stand together in the fight against coronavirus. He has asked the citizens to switch off lights for nine minutes and light candles and diyas instead. Actress Taapsee Pannu has reacted sarcastically to this exercise with a tweet.
Reacting to the same, actor Taapsee Pannu tweeted, “New task is here! Yay yay yayy!!!” Her tweet received more than 1.3K replied in under an hour, most of which are trolling her for her reaction. Her tweets never go down well with BJP supporters as it’s no news that she is anti-BJP to the core.
New task is here ! Yay yay yayy !!!

The PM said in his address, “On this Sunday, April 5, we will challenge the darkness of coronavirus threat together. On April 5, at 9 pm, I need your 9 minutes. At 9 pm, turn off all the lights in your houses and light a Diya, candle, torch or flashlight for 9 minutes at your doors, or balcony.” The Prime Minister further said that this will send out a message that nobody among the 130 crore Indians is alone in this fight against the deadly infection. He also advised people to do so from within their houses or balconies while practising social distancing.
The novel coronavirus has infected over 2,000 people in the country, killing more than 50.
