Harbhajan Singh On IPL 2020: The whole world is fighting unitedly against Coronavirus and India is under a total lockdown for 21 days. The Government of India is taking every possible measure to save us from the corona pandemic. The honorable Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi has appealed to the citizens of India to stay inside and not go outside for 21 days.
Talking about Coronavirus and on the possibilities of IPL 2020, Indian cricketer and commentator Mr. Harbhajan Singh gave a very mature statement in an exclusive interview to ANI.
Harbhajan Singh said that cricket is a very small thing in front of the county and it would be very selfish to even think about cricket and IPL considering the current situation.
“Honestly in this time, cricket does not come in my mind in the past 15 days. Cricket is a very small thing in front of the country. I will be selfish if would be thinking about cricket and IPL. Our priority should healthy and fit India. Sports will only take place if we stay safe and healthy. Cricket is not even in my thoughts,” Harbhajan Singh told ANI.
Harbhajan Singh, as a responsible citizen of India, requested his fans to do whatever little they can in these tough times.
“It is time to stay united and try to do whatever little you can do to make this country back on its feet”, Bhajji added.
He also voiced his concern about the plight of the migrant labourers who have been forced to leave the cities in order to reach their homes.
“I think the situation of the migrant laborers should be kept in mind before making the announcement. They don’t have the home to stay, food to eat, and job to earn. The government should have taken care of that and assured them that they will get food and money. But now they want to travel back to there home. It is very disturbing how things have been handled,” Harbhajan Singh said.
“Nobody has ever thought the condition will become that severe and cities will be locked down. Things changed so rapidly that even the government did not get time to think about them. I hope we have time to take decisions smartly for the safety of the citizens. I understand why people want to go their home because they want to be with their own people,” Harbhajan Singh added.
