Prime Minister Narendra Modi today morning (April 3, 2020) addressed the nation through a video message amid the Coronavirus crisis. He urged the countrymen to switch off the lights at their houses on April 5 at 9 pm. He appealed the citizens to come out on their doorstep or balcony to light a candle, diya, flash, torchlight or mobile flashlight at the said time for nine minutes. Modi requested people to show solidarity and follow the idea to demonstrate a collective will to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. 

PM Modi doing so is a token of demonstration of unity and oneness. He was quoted saying, 'There is no bigger force than our conviction and resolve.' He also urged people to avoid gathering anywhere during this period. However, as soon as the message reached everyone, many reacted to the PM's unique idea. One of them is a TV actor Nakuul Mehta. The actor took to his Instagram handle to share his views on Modi Ji's request and went on to take a sly and hilarious dig at it.

Stupid TVwala actor trying to be in news.

People are getting lathi charged for buying essentials . Our pm wants us to risk our lives and go out to buy candles and diyas.

Which house in india doesn't have diyas or candles? How bizarre.

He never told to go out and buy there are option of showing the unity showing mobile torch light however some people are always on a drive to critise for no reason.

Just now the air got a little cleaner worldwide , now we should pollute it again with candles ?

So don't light firecrackers or candles at any other festival too. It's such a small gesture. I cannot understand a mentality which will criticize every small thing. People are shut off at home, afraid, some might not be econnected to another human being. This is just a morale booster.

This guy tries every means to be relevant. If similar thing was done in the UK or US, this guy would have joined the wagon.

Ghar mein mandir nahi hai? Ek bhi candle ya diya nahi hai!! Tea light candle bhi nahi hai? Phone ki flash light bhi tod di isne shayad. Haha

If moDDT I ask who country to jump in the well, they all will

Nakul Mehta day by day how stupid can you get? Don’t you feel ashamed to mock everything related to nation just to be in news.cheap

I think this joker actor should know his stature and talk.

Such a lame comment why don’t you jump in the well after that world will be a better place to live.

It's a trick to keep busy people in such use less acts. diverting from the failures. No sense in it.
Now some are there justifying it by giving ill logical logics,like astrological sense of modi ji and further generation of heat by this process would kill virus etc.
