Indian Wrestler and BJP leader Babita Phogat on Wednesday has condemned a purported attack on healthcare workers in Indore by local residents amid the coronavirus outbreak. Taking to Twitter, Phogat responded to a video post by Ashoke Pandit allegedly of the search for persons who attended the Nizamuddin Markaz.
In her tweet, she said, "This has become the limit, now the country should get rid of these viruses like the coronavirus. God is watching you should be punished soon. In this difficult time, when the whole country is standing united, they won't stop their antics".
यह तो हद ही हो गई अब तो देश को लगे हाथों कोरोना वायरस की तरह इन वायरसों से भी छुटकारा पा ही लेना चाहिए। भगवान देख रहा है तुम्हारे कर्मों की सजा जल्दी ही तुम्हें मिलनी चाहिए। इस मुश्किल घड़ी में जब पूरा देश एकजुट खड़ा है ये कुत्ते अब भी अपनी हरकतों से बाज नहीं आ रहे हैं। https://t.co/o9kwITw51p— Babita Phogat (@BabitaPhogat) April 1, 2020
