Rahul Gandhi, the head of the Congress, has received a letter from the Union Health Minister. The same requests that he follow the Covid “protocol” in his “Bharat Jodo Yatra” or risk having it suspended “in the national interest.” In light of the fact that India currently has no mask mandate and has lifted other limitations over last year. The Congress today wanted to find out what the procedure is.
In response to concerns raised by a rise in China, an expert group under the direction of the Health Ministry later issued a recommendation for the use of masks in crowded settings. Although the administration insists there is “no reason to panic,” and thus there is no requirement.
The letter, dated December 20 while the yatra was in Rajasthan, mentioned that three state-based BJP MPs had written to the minister “to express concern.” Wednesday marked the yatra’s entry into Haryana.
The Congress responded by referencing PM Narendra Modi’s recent campaign for office in Gujarat and the BJP’s continuing demonstrations. “The BJP is organizing yatras in Rajasthan and Karnataka. Have they received a letter from the health minister? “asked Pawan Khera, a spokesman for the Congress.
The party said, “Please declare Covid protocols; we will adhere to them.”
Below is the letter from the Union Health Minister:
The three Rajasthani MPs whose letter the minister quoted had emphasized that Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu, the chief minister of Himachal Pradesh, had also tested positive after taking part in the yatra.
In response to the letter, Congress leaders are saying that the center is looking for excuses to stop the yatra. Congress leaders are questioning whether Prime Minister Modi ensures Covid protocols during his rallies. Rahul Gandhi is yet to react on the letter. However, looking at the current response. we can say that Congress will not stop the Yatra.
