Amit Shah Interview on Coronavirus Delhi, India China Face Off, Rahul Gandhi

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday said that the statement by Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia in early June on coronavirus cases reaching 5.5 lakh by the end of July has created fear among the people. He expressed the confidence that the stage will not be reached. Amit Shah also said that there was no community spread of the disease in the national capital.

In an interview with ANI, limited to the Centre and Delhi Government’s efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus in Delhi, Amit Shah said that “There is coordination… Arvind Kejriwal is always kept in the loop. He is also involved in decision making. Some political statements may have been made but no impact on decision making.”

“The situation regarding bodies (of COVID-19 victims) in Delhi was grim. Over 350 bodies were pending for last rites. We decided that within 2 days last rites of bodies will be done as per religion. Today, no body is left for last rites. Now last rituals are conducted same day,” Amit Shah said.

Home Minister also said that “It helped boost morale of healthcare workers and the confidence of citizens. I met a number of nurses who are working and fighting strong. I came to know of a number of issues.”

Talking about fight against COVID-19 and the tensions on the Line of Actual Control in Eastern Ladakh, Amit Shah said that “Let me make it clear. Under PM Modi’s leadership, India is going to win both the battles.”

Meanwhile, he spoke up on “Surender Modi” tweet by Rahul Gandhi. He said, “We’re capable of handling anti-India propaganda but its painful when former president of a big party (Rahul Gandhi) does ‘ochhi rajneeti’ during a crisis. Its matter of introspection for him and his party that their hashtag is being encouraged by Pakistan and China.”

“After Indira ji, was there any Congress Pres from outside Gandhi family? What democracy do they talk of? I didn’t do any politics during COVID-19. You look at my tweets of the past 10 years. Every June 25, I give a statement,” Amit Shah said on his tweet about Emergency.

“Emergency should be remembered by people as it attacked the roots of our democracy. No political worker or citizen should forget. There should be awareness about it. It is not about a party but about the attack on the country’s democracy,” he added.
