Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed concern over the violation of Corona appropriate behaviour. Sources say, in the meeting of Council of Ministers yesterday, Mr.Modi said, over the past few days, pictures and videos of crowded places and people roaming about without masks or social distancing have been emerging. He said, this is not a pleasant sight and it should instill a sense of fear in us.
In the first meeting of the Council of Ministers yesterday after the Cabinet expansion, the Prime Minister stressed that powered by COVID warriors and frontline workers, India’s fight against the global pandemic is underway with full vigour. Mr Modi added that at such a time, there should not be any space for carelessness or complacency. He cautioned that a single mistake will have far-reaching impacts and weaken the fight to overcome COVID-19.
The Prime Minister said, with the numbers being lesser than what they were in the recent months, people may want to venture out but everyone must remember that the threat of COVID-19 is far from over. Many other nations are seeing surges in infections. The virus is also mutating.
The Prime Minister told the Council that as ministers, their aim should not be to instill fear but to request people to keep taking all possible precautions so that we are able to move beyond this pandemic in the times to come. Mr. Modi also expressed concern at the persistently high number of cases coming from Maharashtra and Kerala.
