If elected representatives disrespect PM’s #lockdown order, how is the rest of India expected to follow. Hope @PMOIndia will take strict action against him. https://t.co/TvFLZtjeki
As the total number of COVID-19 case crossed reached 7,500 today, authorities have been trying hard to strictly enforce the nationwide lockdown announced by PM Modi. It is important that we adhere to the social distancing norms to prevent the spread of the disease.
