Union Minister and Senior BJP leader Prakash Javadekar hit out at the Congress saying when the country is fighting to contain the COVID-19, the Congress is playing politics on it.
 
Talking to media in New Delhi yesterday, Mr Javadekar said, while the whole world is appreciating India for imposing lockdown on right time, the Congress is criticizing it. Referring to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's press conference, he said wrong facts were put up about lockdown which shows the kind of politics congress is doing.
 
Mr Javadekar said, the COVID-19 doubling rate was three days before the lockdown and it is 13 now which reflects  India's success. He said, 45 lakh migrant workers were transported to their home states by over 3,000 special trains.
 
Citing various welfare provisions of the the Central government including five month free ration for over 80 crore poor and  transfer of 2000 rupees to nine crore farmers, Mr Javadekar said these measures in real term are more than 7,500 rupees that demanded by Mr Gandhi for the poor.
