Thane, Apr 3: Maharashtra Minister and NCP leader Jitendra Awhad on Friday came down heavily on the 'light up lamps' message of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the nation which was telecast this morning and said he had disappointed the citizens of the country in this message as the PM did not touch upon any of the current issues. He revolted and declared in a video message which is being circulated in the social media that he will not follow the request of Modi to switch off the lights at 2100 hours April 5, and light candles.
In his message, Awhad said that it was expected that the entire country hoped that Modi would tell something about the essential commodities, he will talk on the topic that not a single poor citizen will sleep starving, there will be sufficient availability of mask, sanitizers, there will be no dearth of medicines, he will talk also on the topic that we are finding out new vaccine on COVID-19, there will be no shortage of testing kits. It was expected that he would give support to the citizens in this difficult times in the country.
“I don’t understand as to why they want to make an event of everything. This is nothing but foolishness. Childishness, doltishness (Naadan). I want to announce today, I am working, I go to the poor, I take care of them give them food. I will give money for the oil and candles to the poor. As far as I am concerned I will keep all the lights in my house on and not light even a single candle. I want to say I am not a crack," the minister said. (UNI)
