In a video which is going viral, a Punjab cop can be seen requesting women to put men to work at home during the lockdown. Watch it here:
The cop requested all the women that if men are finding it difficult to be home because they are bored, they must put them to work and get their homes cleaned, make them wash the clothes, and added, ‘Ghar di safai hoegi, coronavirus di safai hoegi, naley inna di v safai hoegi.’
He further says “They’ll also learn to cook in these 21-days so women don’t have to think who’ll cook food for the family in their absence. So if they don’t want to rest at home in the next three weeks, then let them work at home.”
Well, people on social media were clearly impressed with the idea and hailed the cop for such an important message.
One user wrote, ”Corona bringing about gender equity.. men need to whole heartedly participate in daily chores to understand and appreciate the time and effort it requires to keep a house in order 365 days 24×7.”
