On Sunday (April 5) at the call of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the entire nation showed solidarity in the country’s fight against the fast-growing COVID-19 infection by lighting a lamp, candle, flashlight or flash of mobile. PM Modi had appealed to the people to show off the collective passion of the country against the Coronavirus by turning off the lights of the houses at nine o’clock on Sunday night and instead of lighting a candle, lamp or any other light for nine minutes. Meanwhile, Gautam Gambhir was very upset with the firecrackers.
Actually, people started burning firecrackers after this appeal of PM Modi. Also, pictures of some people coming out on the streets during this time were also coming out. In such a situation, former Indian cricketers Gautam Gambhir, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Irfan Pathan got angry with those who did so.
Gautam Gambhir tweeted, “India… Stay in!” We are in the middle of a fight right now. This is not a chance to burn firecrackers.”
INDIA, STAY INSIDE!
We are still in the middle of a fight
Not an occasion to burst crackers ! #IndiaFightsCorona

At the same time, Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin also misunderstood the burning of firecrackers. Ashwin tweeted, “I am surprised from where these people bought firecrackers and when to buy them … This is also an important question.”
But I really do wonder where all these people bought their crackers from and of course ( when is the most important Q) !!
