Aam Aadmi Party's Sanjay Singh on Friday hit out at the BJP government in Centre accusing it of trivialising the Coronavirus pandemic and instead focussing on forming government in Madhya Pradesh. Taking to Twitter, Sanjay Singh stated that despite the rising cases of Coronavirus, the Parliament has been functioning and although they had raised the issue of precautions, the government was waiting for danger.
Furthermore, taking a dig at the BJP he said that MPs were busy attending parties, naming BJP's Rajasthan MP Dushyant Singh. He said, "while the country is in crisis and BJP's Dushyant Singh is attending a 'Baby Doll' party." The AAP leader was referring to the party in Lucknow, in which 'Baby Doll' singer Kanika Kapoor was present, who on Friday, tested positive for the Coronavirus. As per reports, bureaucrats, politicians and socialites attended the party, with several netas also now going into self-quarantine as a consequence.
In another tweet, Sanjay Singh informed that since TMC MP Derek O'Brien has self quarantined himself, he too will be going into self-quarantine as a precautionary measure as he keeps meeting the TMC MP in the Parliament.
