New Delhi: Reminding citizens that India is “still in middle of a fight” amid the coronavirus outbreak, former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir has lashed out at those who burst crackers on Sunday evening.
“INDIA, STAY INSIDE! We are still in the middle of a fight. Not an occasion to burst crackers!” Gautam Gambhir said on Twitter after it emerged out that firecrackers were burnt in several parts of the country on Sunday evening during the nine-minute period in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asked citizens to switch off their lights and light candles and diyas and show solidarity in fight against COVID-19 pandemic.
India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh also slammed those who resorted to bursting crackers. “We will find a cure for corona but how are we going to find a cure for stupidity,” Harbhajan tweeted.
