In such critical times, it is of utmost importance and urgency that we all come together and support the marginalised sections of the society, along with those who are in dire conditions. I also urge the citizens of our country to support the Hon’ble Prime Minister and local authorities by staying home and help in stopping the spread of the pandemic coronavirus.”
