Rahul Gandhi came down heavy on BJP over COVID-19 management

Congress Leader Rahul Gandhi during a 'Kisan Bachao Rally' in Patiala came down heavy on BJP-led government over battle against COVID-19. Gandhi said, "Today ask any shopkeeper, any businessmen that what happened due to GST, they will say that we are destroyed, we got ruined and even today they don't know how to file GST. PM Narendra Modi just wants to benefit 2-3 big businessmen of our country through demonetization, GST and COVID." While commenting on government's plan of action towards corona, Rahul said, "He said we will win the battle against COVID-19 in 22 days. Have 22 days passed? If we were to win this battle in that much time then why are we wearing masks today and hiding our faces?"

1710 Sandhu Killed-

A day after Shaurya Chakra awardee Balwinder Singh Sandhu was assassinated in Punjab, his wife, Jagdish Kaur, blamed the government and intelligence agencies for not paying heed to the several appeals that they made for security. She said, “There are 42 registered FIRs on attacks on our family and countless other attacks have taken place which are not on record. Withdrawal of security was wrong.” She added, “Those who treat security cover as a status symbol have been provided with it. We actually needed it but were not given.” The 62-year-old Sandhu, who fought terrorism in Punjab, was shot dead in the district on October 16, months after the government withdrew his security cover. The motorcycle-borne men pumped four bullets into him when he was at his office adjoining his home at Bhikhiwind. Watch the full video for more details.
