Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 in the country, AP CM YS Jagan was never seen wearing a mask. Over the last three months, he took part in many video conferences with officials and even during the meet with Tollywood biggies, Jagan appeared without a mask. Even though Jagan did not travel much in the lockdown period and post, for the meetings, he did not have a mask to his face or gloves to his hands.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his address to the nation yesterday stated that Covid-19 can be contained by wearing a mask, using sanitizers regularly and maintaining social distancing. Modi appealed to everyone to follow these norms as we are entering the unlock phase two and added that no one should be excused if they ignore them.
Also Modi added that we should stop people who are ignoring these norms and make them understand of the consequences. As and when Modi said, nobody is above the rules and system. Be it a head of a village or a PM, everyone has to follow them, Jagan surprised everyone on Wednesday.
At the inauguration of 104 and 108 ambulances at Vijayawada Benz circle, Jagan was spotted with a mask for the first time. The netizens were taken away by Jagan wearing a mask and immediately started sharing the pictures of him with a mask and creating memes. They also trolled Jagan for taking a serious consideration of PM Modi’s comments.
Looks like PM Modi’s indirect warning to leaders has worked effectively and this is a good sign.
