Do not play petty politics over Coronavirus, Amit Shah slams Congress leadership

Accusing the opposition party of “playing petty politics” Home Minister Amit Shah today slammed at the Congress saying the party must “think of national interest and stop misleading people”. He also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s efforts to contain the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19 infection “are being lauded domestically and globally”.

The attack on the Congress came hours after the Congress Working Committee, the party’s highest decision-making body, met via video conference – to maintain social distancing protocols during the 21-day lockdown ordered by the Prime Minister – and criticised the Narendra Modi government for “the unplanned manner in which it (the nationwide lockdown) has been implemented”.

“Under PM Narendra Modi’s leadership, India’s efforts to fight coronavirus are being lauded domestically and globally. 130 crore Indians are united to defeat COVID-19. Congress is playing petty politics. High time they think of national interest and stop misleading people,” Mr Shah’s tweet read.
