Is BJP making Indians to celebrate party’s founding day: Kumaraswamy

Kumaraswamy, Former Karnataka Chief Minister  has taken a jibe at PM Modi’s light-a-lamp campaign for Sunday night at 9 pm. The JDS leader has said BJP is indirectly making the whole country celebrate the party’s founding day with the 9 pm plan.

PM Modi had on Friday asked all Indians to light candles or turn on mobile phone torches for nine minutes at 9 pm on April 5 to display the country’s “collective resolve” to defeat the novel coronavirus.

Experts says, there is some strategy of PM Modi, behind lighting the candle at 9 PM today.

Prime Minister Modi has urged all Indians to come out on their balconies on Sunday night at 9 pm, switch off all lights in the house and light candles, diyas or phone flashlights. The idea is to make Indians currently under lockdown to express solidarity with each other in the ongoing fight against coronavirus.

Opposition leaders, however, have not taken too kindly to the idea.

Has the PM slyly asked the nation to observe a candle light vigil on the eve of foundation day of BJP? April 6 being its foundation day, what else can explain the choice of date & time for this event? I challenge the PM to offer a credible scientific and rational explanation. 1/3

The government is yet to provide PPEs for doctors and make test kits affordable for the common man. Without telling the nation what concrete steps are being taken to combat COVID-19 menace, the prime minister is giving meaningless tasks to an already exhausted population. 2/3

Kumaraswamy has asked if BJP was hesitant to celebrate the party’s founding day on April 6 and is making all Indians indirectly hold diyas to serve their purpose.

BJP was hesitant to celebrate its founding day due to the coronavirus pandemic and is now indirectly making whole country hold diyas. PM must clarify why he chose April 5 for this event and if there is any scientific reason behind it. The country has never seen such tough times. In these times do we need to celebrate, asked the former chief minister.
