A video of a child constantly telling his mother he doesn’t want to go out of his house because “Modi uncle” told him to stay home is being widely shared even as the nation remains under lockdown till May 3.
The video, which was initially shared on TikTok, shows a toddler refusing to go out when his mother asks him to get ready.
“I am not ready, it is lockdown and Modi uncle told us not to go out of the house,” he says.
His mother asks him what they should do and he replies, “Then we have to stay in the house only.”
The mother assures the child that it’s okay to step out, but the boy insists that the government will take him if he steps out of the house.

Bollywood actor Anupam Kher shared the clip on Twitter and tagged Prime Minister Modi.
Here are some of the reactions to the video:
