SONIA GANDHI : CONGRESS WILL HELP PEOPLE FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19
The 1stnewz Staff : Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday sought to assure people of her party's support amid the corona-led crisis and expressed confidence that with a strong morale, the country will emerge victorious against the crisis very soon.
"What can be more patriotic that all of us fighting the pandemic together. Our coronavirus warriors are fighting this war despite lack of basic safety gear. Doctors, health workers and volunteers are treating patients despite lack of protection kits," Sonia Gandhi said, urging people to "follow the lockdown and adhere to the social distancing norms".
"Policemen and jawans are on duty to ensure a successful lockdown. Sanitation workers - despite lack of resources - are helping in containing the spread of the coronavirus. Government officials too are working hard to ensure essential services. But if we don't support them, they won't be able to do their jobs. Reports have been coming of harassment of doctors. This is wrong, against our culture. We have to support them in this fight."
"Many of you are fighting this war at an individual level by distributing sanitisers, ration. All of you deserve to be praised. All Congress workers are with you in this fight, whether we are in opposition or ruling a state," she said at the end of nearly five-minute long video message.
