New Delhi, (Samajweekly) Amid political speculation in Maharashtra, the Congress on Tuesday asked Prime Minister Modi to fight the corona pandemic, and not the opposition, alleging that the BJP is trying to destabilise the opposition government in that state.
“Modi ji,instead of wasting time in destabilisling the opposition-run state government and creating a rift there, the Union government could have fought the pandemic… the country would have avoided seeing these days,” tweeted Congress Chief Spokesperson Randeep Surjewala.
“Wake up and do not dream of pulling down the state government,” tweeted Surjewala.
The statement comes in the wake of BJP demanding President’s rule in Maharashtra for mishandling the pandemic.
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi in his press conference said: “Maharashtra is struggling because of its connectivity — it is one of the most important assets for India and the centre of business. It’s fighting a difficult battle and it is important that Maharashtra and its people get support from the government of India.”
Rahul Gandhi said “Our CMs (Congress-ruled states) say they are fighting a lonely battle. They understand and are confident what has to be done, but what is the Central government planning to do?”
