At the BJP Parliamentary meet Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made it clear that the ongoing Parliament’s Budget Session will not be curtailed as lawmakers should be seen to be doing their work at a time when a health concern stares at the masses. He also asked party MPs to visit their constituencies to spread awareness about the coronavirus.

Modi heaped praise on doctors and other medical staff besides airline crews and others involved in tackling the coronavirus crisis, saying they have worked positively and tirelessly, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi told reporters.
