He requested the citizens of India to switch off the lights and light lamps or candles at 9 pm for 9 minutes to show strength and solidarity to the heroes combating coronavirus.

Fire from the lamps or candles can spread onto freshly sanitized hands very easily.So, the Government is asking the citizens to be aware of this danger and stay away from it.
