New Delhi: Home Minister Amit Shah criticized the Congress on Friday saying it is “playing petty politics” while the PM strives to contain coronavirus.
He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s edeavours are being lauded nationally and globally. Shah tweeted the Congress must think of national interest and stop misleading people.
The attack on the Congress came hours after the CWC lambasted Modi government for “the unplanned manner in which it (the nationwide lockdown) has been implemented”.
The home minister said 130 crore Indians are united to defeat COVID-19. Congress is playing petty politics. It is high time they think of national interest and stop misleading people, Shah added in his tweet.
Much of the Congress’s criticism has centered around the lockdown’s impact on migrant workers.
Tens of thousands of men and women who left their hometowns to work as daily wagers in big cities, often those in different states, are in distress following the abrupt closure of commercial and industrial activities.
