Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday announced a complete lockdown across the country for 21 days from Tuesday midnight, asserting that ‘social distancing’ is the only way to stop the spread of coronavirus outbreak.
Even in this complete lockdown police, doctors, nurses & other essential service providers have to come out and serve the people.
While we are sitting inside due to lockdown restrictions, police personnel are on roads to make sure the lockdown is adopted in the right manner.
Families of these police officers have been anxious and concerned as with each passing day, the rate of infection is getting higher which makes them more prone to get infected.
Anil Deshmukh, Home Minister of Maharashtra shared a touching video where a child is telling father who is a cop to not step outside the house as there is the corona
In the 31-second long video, you can see the child crying and asking his father to stay inside, “Baher corona aahe papa tumi baher jau naka (There is a coronavirus outbreak outside father, please don’t go outside)”.
In reply, the cop explains his son that it’s duty to go out and work. “Saheban cha phone aala hota mala…don ach mintat jaun yeto mi (My boss called me for work…I will come home soon)“, said the father.
पप्पा बाहेर कोरोना आहे…..
