If the Union Home Ministers remark at the virtual rally in Odisha is something of a confession, then the ruling party in India has accepted making a mistake in handling the COVID19 outbreak.
Home Minister Amit Shah, while addressing a virtual rally in Odisha from New Delhi, blamed the opposition for not doing much during the lockdown and managing the COVID19 crisis. He said that the government may have made a mistake or fallen short of expectations while dealing with the pandemic and the workers crisis that followed.
Amit Shah agreed that the government is aware of the hardships that workers have faced as a result of the lockdown. However, he argued that the BJP had worked in sync with the state governments and provided full support in the fight against the COVID19 outbreak. Running of the Shramik trains, the economic package announced by the central government, etc were some of the corrective steps taken by the BJP to get the people of the country back on their feet in times of crisis.
