Prime Minister Narendra Modi In his address to the nation on Friday, he called on citizens to light candles and candles on April 5 at 9 p.m. for nine minutes to dispel the darkness caused by the coronavirus outbreak. He called it an attempt to show the strength of Indian unity and light.
This Sunday, April 5 we have to challenge the COVID-19 pandemic, we have to present the power of light to it. We have to take the Mahasankalp (the supreme oath) for 130 crore citizens to new heights. I want your 9 minutes at 9 pm on April 5, he said in his speech.
He asked all the Indians to turn off the lights, reach out from their windows, doors, or balconies and light a candle or diya for 9 minutes. Even the torches and lights of the mobile phones would also work.
He went on to say: Turn off all the lights in the house, get to your front door or balcony and light a candle, a diya, a torch, or your cell phone flash for 9 minutes.
The prime minister's speech led social media users to flood sites with some fun Bollywood-inspired memes that included comic scenes Akshay Kumar & Suniel Shetty 'S' Hera Pheri ', Sanjay Dutt 's ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's 'Devdas' & even the Hindi classic, ‘Naagin’.
