Odisha Congress attacks Amit Shah over his scheduled virtual rally
Bhubaneswar: Odisha Pradesh Congress on Sunday attacked the BJP over Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s scheduled ‘virtual rally’ on Monday in which the senior saffron party leader Amit Shah will address people of Odisha.
Congress MLA Suresh Kumar Routray termed the event as a ‘crime when the country is fighting the alien virus’ and said, “It is illegal to organise such rallies during this Coronavirus lockdown and shutdown. Will he be spared because he is the Union Home Minister?”
He further said that a complaint needs to be registered again Shah for organising such rally and he must be arrested. “We are abiding by the lockdown norms but the rule makers are not following the restrictions themselves,” he rued.
Due to the inefficiency of the Centre, migrants had to suffer and they returned to Odisha through various means by putting their lives at stake. Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had said that 15000 COVID tests will be conducted a day, however, a mere 2000 tests per day is being done, said Routray.
