New Delhi, Apr 12: Amidst coronavirus outbreak, former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Kamal Nath on Sunday accused the Union government-led by the BJP of being responsible for the present scenario in the country.
The Congress leader also alleged that the Centre ran Parliament only to ensure that the Madhya Pradesh assembly could function and the Congress government headed by him could be toppled. "It is obvious, Parliament was run only to ensure that Madhya Pradesh assembly could run and the Congress government be toppled," Mr Nath said at a press conference addressed through video conferencing.
He said that the people of Madhya Pradesh were "befooled" by the BJP as there was no council of ministers or a health or home Minister in place in the state amid the crisis due to the coronavirus outbreak. "Nowhere in the world has this happened," he added. Mr Nath said the situation in the country due to coronavirus was very serious and the number of cases will rise if more testing was done. Noting that the country is going to face a very serious economic crisis due to COVID-19, he said the Centre's economic package needs to be focused and its success lies in its execution and on which sectors it focuses on.
