Rajya Sabha today urged the people of the country to bear with the restrictions imposed by the central and State Governments and cooperate in the ongoing efforts to contain the spread of the killer Corona virus.

The House urged the people to be guided by the spirit of super Sunday when the people rose in unison to the call of national duty and confined themselves to homes for 14 hours.

Members of the House endorsed the laudatory observations made by the Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu to the response of the people on Sunday to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clarion call for Janata curfew and the applause that resonated across the country for the doctors, nurses, technicians and media who are in the forefront of the fight against Corona virus.

Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu observed that “The extraordinary response of the people (on Sunday) was a clear demonstration of the collective resolve of the nation to address the formidable challenge (of Corona virus). This House takes note of this positive response and also the need to keep focussed on concrete action and keeping this spirit alive as we brace ourselves for the challenges ahead in the coming weeks.”

Noting that extraordinary situations warrant extreme measures, Rajya Sabha urged the people to bear with restrictions being imposed and cooperate as they had done on Sunday.

The observations on Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu which were endorsed by the members of the House said: “This House records its appreciation of the overwhelming response of the people of the country to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clarion call for Janata Curfew yesterday and urge them to be guided by the same spirit till the war on Corona virus is finally won. The House also appreciates the central and State Governments for their timely and effective interventions. This House also expresses hope that collectively we shall overcome this huge challenge in the coming weeks.”
