Ab aap bilkul mat rona, kuch din ke baad chala jayega corona (virus). Corona ko mat daro na, corona ko abhi abhi marona (now you dont cry, the corona will disappear after few days. Dont be scared of corona, kill it now). Corona go go go. Go corona, go corona, go corona. No corona, no corona, the minister of state is heard as saying in the clip.

Hum bahot hi gambhir hai mod par, phir kyun aate ho aap road par? (none should come on the road, I make the request folding my hands.
