Chandigarh, April 6

On Sunday, many celebrities took to social media to post their pictures and videos of lighting lamps and candles in a move to show solidarity in fighting with the coronavirus. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also posted pictures as part of the 9baje9minute initiative.

However, Punjabi singer Babbal Rai had a different approach to the whole initiative and he expressed his feelings through a song.

Rai, named the song as 'Quarantine Jaago', in which he is asking PM Modi to wake up and face the reality of the situation.

The song says that doctors first need ventilators, masks and medicines. Next, it says that the money which has come from charity should reach the poor.

In the end, it also said that lighting lamps and talking about 'Hindu Muslim' issues is just a gimmick to divert the public from the real issue.
