In light of an increase in coronavirus cases in some countries, the BJP has suspended its “Jan Aakrosh Yatra” in Rajasthan, according to party general secretary Arun Singh.
On December 1, BJP chief J P Nadda will begin the “Jan Aakrosh Yatra” in the Congress-ruled state of Rajasthan, with an eye toward the Assembly elections that are scheduled for next year, in an effort to pressure the Ashok Gehlot administration on matters pertaining to farmers and governance.
“The BJP has suspended the Jan Aakrosh Yatra in Rajasthan in the wake of rising number of COVID-19 cases. For the BJP, people come first before politics. For us the safety of people, their health is priority,” Singh said. Describing the Congress’ Bharat Jodo Yatra as a “morning and evening walk”, Singh accused the party of gambling with people’s lives for political gains.
Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya expressed alarm about the global increase in COVID-19 infections on Thursday. In light of impending festivals and new year celebrations, he urged states to be vigilant and raise awareness about using face masks and hand sanitizers.
In a statement to the Lok Sabha, Mandaviya claimed that the virus’s ongoing evolution is a threat to global health in a way that affects almost every nation. According to the ministry, India has been reporting 153 new cases on average every day, compared to 5.87 lakh instances reported each day worldwide.
