‘Government Doesn’t Get It’: Rahul Gandhi pleads nation-wide lockdown with protection of NYAY for the vulnerable sections
Last year, Rahul Gandhi himself said that a lockdown is not a solution to the COVID-19 virus instead its just a pause button.
New Delhi: Congress leader and MP Rahul Gandhi tweeted on Tuesday asking the central govt. to impose a nation-wide lockdown even after being a vocal critic of it last year. Rahul said in his tweet on Tuesday that inaction of central government is killing innocent peoples.
Although last year when the govt. had imposed a two-month long nation-wide lockdown, Rahul had a opposed the decision publicly on multiple occasions. He said last year, “When you lock people up, the disease gets locked up. When you open the door, the disease will come rushing out.”
GOI doesn’t get it.
The only way to stop the spread of Corona now is a full lockdown- with the protection of NYAY for the vulnerable sections.
GOI’s inaction is killing many innocent people.
