Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said the country’s approach to deal with coronavirus is being hailed not only by Indians but even by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Addressing the party cadre on the 40th foundation day of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Prime Minister Modi urged his party men to extend help to the economically weaker elements of the society.

Giving a five-point action plan to BJP workers, Modi also asked them to cover their faces and carry face-covers for others.

In his video address, Modi also asked BJP workers to send appreciation messages to health workers, doctors and other essential services’ staff for helping India fight COVID-19.

He asked party workers to install ‘Arogya Setu’ app on mobile phones of at least 40 people.

He also asked party workers to follow the guidelines and ‘help those in need and reaffirm the importance of social distancing’.

The Prime Minister’s appeal to the ruling party comes the morning after millions of people across the country switched off the lights of their residences and lit diyas (earthen lamps) and candles in their balconies and verandas.

The BJP’s foundation day on Monday was a low-key affair as the party is observing it amid the nationwide lockdown to stem the spread of coronavirus or COVID-19.
