Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi on Monday said that if it was wrong in the eyes of the PM to take care of the stranded migrants after the sudden lockdown was announced due to the pandemic, then we will repeat this mistake 100 times for the sake of humanity. ,
This comes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his Lok Sabha address on Monday alleged that opposition parties gave “free tickets” to migrant workers in Mumbai, resulting in the spread of the infection.
“When Shramik trains started, can the country forget how these poor laborers were being charged for tickets? The state government stepped in to pay their fare,” he said.
When the trains requested by the states were not given to them but were politicized in the arrogance of control by the then Railway Minister, should the citizens of this country be left alone? Have some sensitivity, some humility, to the hardships faced before making these comments.

Congress national spokesperson Pawan Khera also targeted the PM for his statements in the Lok Sabha.
“You are the Prime Minister of the country. Before the announcement of the lockdown, you had given only a 4-hour window. You didn’t think about the daily wage workers. Had there been a little humanity, you wouldn’t have said one thing. A little ashamed. So today you would have apologized to those workers.”
‘Special material available in Himalayan caves?’
Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mahua Moitra criticized the PM’s reply to the President’s address in the Lok Sabha, saying the government, which organized the Howdy Trump event, asked people to beat thali, light diyas now to spread the covid virus. Blaming the opposition.
Mahua Moitra tweeted, “Is there such a government that organized the Howdy Trump event, then asked people to play thali, lighting diyas, now accusing the opposition of spreading corona? Is this special stuff only in Himalayan caves Available? Just wondering.”
Excuse me is this actually the Prime Minister of India replying to the President’s address?
Is it just me but is his sinister laugh like Mogambo Khush Hua?
