PM Modi: It has been brought to my attention that some people are campaigning to honor Modi by standing for 5 minutes. At first glance, it seems like a scandal to drag Modi into disputes. Maybe it is someone's goodwill, yet I insist that if you really have so much love and want to honor Modi, then take the responsibility of a poor family, at least as long as the coronavirus crisis is there. There can be no greater honor for me than this.
हो सकता है कि यह किसी की सदिच्छा हो, तो भी मेरा आग्रह है कि यदि सचमुच में आपके मन में इतना प्यार है और मोदी को सम्मानित ही करना है तो एक गरीब परिवार की जिम्मेदारी कम से कम तब तक उठाइए, जब तक कोरोना वायरस का संकट है। मेरे लिए इससे बड़ा सम्मान कोई हो ही नहीं सकता।
