“My conscience tells me that you will definitely forgive me as I had to take certain decisions which have put you in a lot difficulty,” he said on his radio programme Mann ki Baat.
“First of all I apologize to all the countrymen and my soul says that you will definitely forgive me. Because some such decisions have to be made, due to which you have to face many difficulties, especially if I look at my poor siblings, then it seems that they must think that this is how the Prime Minister is, put us in this trouble . I especially apologize to him” PM Modi said.
“Especially, when I look at my poor brothers and sisters, I definitely feel that they must be thinking hat kind of a Prime minister is this who has placed us in this situation,” he added.
“The lockdown is for you to protect you and your family. You have to show this patience for many more days,” he added.
Modi said that brothers, sisters, mothers and elderly Corona virus has imprisoned the world. It is challenging everyone with knowledge, science, poor, rich, weak, powerful.
It is neither bound by the borders of the nation nor does it see any region nor any weather. This virus is sitting on the insistence of killing a human being, and hence, all people, all of mankind, have to unite to resolve to get rid of this virus.
He further said that it has been said here, ‘And and disorder: Api Tarunha Sadhyate Sukhan’. That is, the disease and its nature should be dealt with in the beginning. Later the diseases become incurable then the treatment becomes difficult and today the whole of India is doing the same to every Indian.
The fight against Corona is a fight between life and death and we have to win in this battle and hence these were very necessary to take drastic steps. Nobody likes to take such steps but after seeing the situation of the world, it seems that this is the only way left. You have to keep your family safe.
