Congress party leader Randeep Surjewala says, surprisingly, the central government sent vaccines to foreign nations in the spirit of friendship, but now states in their country are being asked to tender global.
In the first wave of Corona and the subsequent political circumstances, the Modi government has been ‘on its own’. In particular, he did not care about the opposition. Whether the issue is of Corona or the border dispute with China, the Center has taken most of the decisions on its own. The interim president of the Congress party, Sonia Gandhi, even said that the Modi government had imposed a lockdown on its own accord last year. This time too, there is neither vaccine nor oxygen in the hands of the states. The agitating farmers sat exhausted.
Despite all this, the BJP did not listen to the opposition. Now the political situation has started changing. The question is, is the Corona crisis uniting the ‘opposition’. Secondly, after the new energy gained from the Bengal election results, opposition parties can present a big challenge for the ‘BJP’. The 12 opposition leaders wrote a joint letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the midst of the horrific state of the Corona epidemic, calling it a hallmark of solidarity among the opposition. Among the leaders who wrote the letter were Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha leader Hemant Soren, Farooq Abdullah, SP President Akhilesh Yadav, CPIM’s Sitaram Yechury, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, RJD Leader Tejashwi Yadav, NPC Chief Sharad Pawar, Bengal CM Mamta The names of Banerjee, CPI leader D Raja, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and HD Deve Gowda are included.
