New Delhi [India], Mar 21 (ANI): People are making a beeline outside Mother Dairy to hoard milk for upcoming days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday declared to observe nationwide Janata Curfew on March 22.
Speaking to ANI Ramana, a consumer said, "Tomorrow is curfew and that is why people are buying it right now. I have kept 2 days stock of milk." However, she hailed the initiative of Janata Curfew and gave kudos to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Another consumer Rajkumar said, "PM Modi said that essential items will be available but people are in panic that if tomorrow is curfew call then people need to be at home so they are hoarding."
