Pandemic lockdown decision was delayed to bring down Congress govt in MP in 2020: Jairam Ramesh

IndiaTimes Sunday, 5 November 2023 ()
Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Sunday claimed the decision to enforce lockdown in view of Covid-19 was delayed so that the Kamal Nath government could be brought down in Madhya Pradesh. The Nath government fell in March 2020 after a rebellion by several MLAs loyal to Jyotiraditya Scindia. It paved the way for the return of the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government of Bharatiya Janata Party. The lockdown was enforced in India in the later part of March.
