BJP inflaming communal divisions amid COVID-19 crisis: CWC

Agency News

New Delhi, Apr 23: Accusing the BJP of inflaming communal divisions in the country amid the COVID-19 crisis, the Congress Working Committee(CWC) on Thursday demanded a comprehensive ‘Road-Map’ for the future to increase health infrastructure capacity to deal with the pandemic and revive the economy.

A statement after the meeting of the CWC, the second since the enforcement of the lockdown, said, “CWC notes with concern that the BJP is seeking to inflame communal divisions even as the entire nation battles Covid-19. The virus does not discriminate on the basis of caste, creed, religion or gender. As a nation we must be wary of forces that seek to polarise in times of crisis such as these.

“The onus lies on us to ensure that we stand together as one nation in the face of all odds. It also called on the government to prepare a comprehensive ‘Road-Map’ for the future: to increase health infrastructure capacity to deal with the pandemic and revive the economy.”

The CWC demanded utilisation of the remaining lockdown period for the preparation and publication of a detailed ‘Exit Strategy’ and a comprehensive ‘Road-Map’ for the future: to substantially increase health infrastructure capacity to deal with the pandemic; and to revive the economy and protect current levels of employment and wages/income.(UNI)
