Support comes from unexpected avenues for PM Modi’s ‘Janata Curfew’ as even the detractors join in

Prime Minister Modi's appeal to the citizens to fight the coronavirus has received overwhelming support across the spectrum. Barring a few, the movement to fight the coronavirus received support from all sections of the society.

Calling for “resolve and restraint” to fight coronavirus, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday asked the entire country to observe ‘Janata curfew’ on Sunday, March 22 as a test run for social distancing over the next few days.

In a nearly 30-minute national broadcast, he asked people to stay at home from 7 am to 9 pm that day and abide by it while underscoring the dangers of coronavirus, saying the world has never seen a crisis as grave as this.

Prime Minister Modi’s appeal to the citizens to fight the coronavirus has received overwhelming support across the spectrum. Barring a few, the movement to fight the coronavirus received support from all sections of the society. The support for PM Modi also came from unexpected quarters as usual detractors including the members of the “liberal-secular” media and the Congress ecosystem heaped praises on PM Modi for calling people to observe the Janata Curfew.

Sagarika Ghose, a self-styled ‘journalist’ and a known Modi baiter, surprisingly praised Prime Minister Modi for calling on citizens to observe social distancing through self-imposed curfew. However, as usual, there was also a bit of criticism from ‘intellectual’ Sagarika Ghose, as she said she would have liked to hear more about ‘solid measures’ on the overall approach to tackling the crisis.

Former Bollywood actress Twinkle Khanna also surprised netizens and applauded PM Modi for his speech. Khanna who usually rants against the Modi government took to Twitter to state that PM Modi’s address to the fight the corona epidemic made her feel more united.

Yogendra Yadav, a multi-talented ‘intellectual’ and self-proclaimed psephologist, also declared that every Indian must support the government’s efforts to fight the Chinese virus. Yadav, who often comes up with deranged assertions to attack the Modi government also supported the idea of the Economic Task Force.

Rajdeep Sardesai, the Michealangelo of Indian journalism and a known member of the Congress ecosystem, supported PM Modi’s call for restraint and resolve during the testing times and asked the government to act now to tackle the health crisis.

The most unexpected support to PM Modi’ initiative came from none other than Shehla Rashid. Rashid, who is a freelance protestor and a member of the anti-India JNU brigade, shocked the netizens when she appreciated PM Modi’s call to stay indoors. She also endorsed PM Modi’s appeal, asked everyone to be united and follow the instructions given by the government.

Abusive troll Swati Chaturvedi too called PM Modi’s Thursday speech as a ‘better one out of all his speeches’. Chaturvedi however, was not happy with PM Modi’s appeal to applaud the thousands of people who are working day and night to fight the coronavirus outbreak.

Sonam K Ahuja, another Bollywood starlet, also retweeted a post praising PM Modi’s efforts. Sonam Kapoor retweeted Masaba Gupta’s post which said that PM Modi delivered an outstanding speech and it was the time to come together to applaud our nurses and doctor.

The ecosystem, which sustains on the anti-Modi propaganda, perhaps have realised the seriousness of the Coronavirus crisis in the country and believes that the crisis can only be tackled with meticulous planning managed by a powerful leadership. In a way, the anti-Modi brigade now feels that it is only Prime Minister Modi who can unite a country at the time of such a crisis and have also decided to support the PM during these challenging times.
