Rahul Gandhi had also tweeted “We should pay respect to the people who are fighting Covid-19.”
While the opposition did not oppose the move but raised questions.
Prime Minister made a request to the people of the country to light a lamp or a torch at 9:00 PM for 9 minutes.
Just like the lockdown alone cannot succeed in containing coronavirus, lockdown has to be backed by massive testing and a massive economic package; similarly there is no harm in lighting a torch or a lamp or Diya whatever the people want to do, said the Congress. (Agency)
