Can’t fight COVID-19 with ‘pointless talk’ once a month: RaGa on “Mann Ki Baat”

New Delhi: In a veiled dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s monthly radio programme “Mann Ki Baat”, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi today said the country cannot fight the COVID-19 pandemic with “pointless talks” once a month.

The Congress leader, on Twitter, said to fight against COVID-19, one needs “right intention, policy, determination.”

“To fight against coronavirus, you need the right intention, policy, determination. And not meaningless talks once a month,” the Congress MP tweeted in Hindi.

“Mann ki Baat” is the Prime Minister’s monthly radio address to the nation, which is broadcast on the last Sunday of every month. Prime Minister Modi is scheduled to address the 77th episode of his monthly radio programme at 11 am today.

Reminding listeners that today also marks the completion of seven years of BJP government at the centre, PM Modi, during the Mann Ki Baat, reiterated the guiding philosophy of his government: “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vishwas”.

On Friday, the Congress leader had taken a swipe at the Narendra Modi-led central government alleging that the Prime Minister, with his poor vaccine strategy, was responsible for the second wave of COVID-19 in the country.

The Wayanad MP had also claimed that India has no vaccination strategy.
