'Janta Curfew' beginning of long battle: PM Modi

New Delhi, Mar 22 (PTI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday the 14-hour 'Janta Curfew' is the beginning of a long battle against coronavirus outbreak and the countrymen have proved that together they can defeat any challenge.

'Today's Janta Curfew may end at 9.00 pm, but this does not mean we start celebrating,' he tweeted.

He said the self-imposed curfew should 'not be considered as a success' as it is the 'beginning of a long battle'.
