Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that on March 22 there will be “Janta Curfew” from 7am to 9pm in a bid to prepare Indians for the upcoming challenges that the deadly coronavirus can impose. However, it immediately raised concerns for the dog parents who took on social media to share their “dilemma”. One Internet user shared that her dog needs a walk outside the house at least twice, and even though she can arrange the morning walk before seven o’clock, it still leaves a question how she would manage the second walk.

While most dog parents agreed with the Twitter user who started the conversation with dog parents and asked for advice, most were seen answering that she should “train” her dog. One of the internet users also posted a video from some other country which was under lockdown due to the pandemic in which the dog is walked around with the help of a drone.

'Janta Curfew'

PM Modi said on March 19 that Indians should practice a “Janta Curfew” on the upcoming Sunday, March 22 to prepare the people of the upcoming challenges in the face of the pandemic which has already reached at least 180 countries including India. As the fatal COVID-19 infects 217 people in the nation including foreigners, PM Modi also suggested that people should come out to their balconies at 5pm on March 22 and applaud the people in essential services. 

PM said, “All citizens must follow 'Janta Curfew' on 22nd March, from 7 AM to 9 PM."

He added, "I would like, on Sunday, March 22, for us to offer thanks to all such people who are providing essential services in such time. On Sunday at 5pm, let us stand at the doors and balconies of our houses and applaud these people for five minutes — by clapping, banging plates and pans.”
