New Delhi: Invoking Bhagvad Gita in his appeal to migrant workers leaving the city, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today urged them to stay put in their houses and rather read the holy book to counter Coronavirus.

“Read 18 chapters of Bhagavad Gita during the remaining 18 days of lockdown. We are doing that in our family,” he said.

After Delhi CM exhorted people to turn their attention to Bhagvad Gita, debate began on social media over the intention behind this message. Some called it ‘Hindutva card’ while other taunted the AAP govt for ‘copying’ Modi model of governance.

It may be noted that the re-telecast of Ramayan on Doordarshan also raised many eyebrows with political rivals dubbing it a ‘dictatorial move’ by the Centre.
