Following Prime Minister Narendra Modi's appeal for a 'Janata curfew' today (March 22), the nation is set to observe an unprecedented shutdown on Sunday, from 7 am to 9 pm. The initiative was taken in view of the coronavirus pandemic, which has taken a toll over the world. In his appeal to the nation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged people to voluntarily stay indoors to contain the spread of coronavirus. To this cause, public transport will be suspended or curtailed and all markets and establishments except those dealing in essential goods and services will be closed today.
