The Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Tuesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of “pushing thousands of lives into danger” and “turning Tripura into a Covid manufacturing hub” with his rallies.
“Shame on Biplab Deb for toying with people’s lives,” the TMC’s Tripura unit tweeted.
TMC’s reactions came after PM Modi launched the new integrated terminal building of the Agartala Airport in Tripura, where hundreds of people gathered to catch a glimpse of Modi.
“The Prime Minister of India is pushing thousands of lives into danger! Turning Tripura into a ‘COVID Manufacturing Hub’, does the PM really think he is capable of protecting people? SHAME @narendramodiji. SHAME ON @BjpBiplab for TOYING WITH PEOPLE’S LIVES!” the TMC said in the tweet.
The Centre had issued fresh curbs in view of the surge in Covid-19 cases in the country, but the restrictions were flouted in Modi’s programme.
Most of the people at the programme are seen without face masks.
