New Delhi, April 4 (IANS) With the world coming to a standstill due to the coronavirus outbreak, things have gone bad for the poor and getting food is a fight they are fighting apart from trying to stay safe in these tough times. And former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh took to Twitter to post a video where policemen are seen sharing their food with those in need and applauded the effort.
