TMC MLA also suspends rallies; CPM hits out at PM, Shah for holding rallies
Amid the surge in coronavirus cases, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday cancelled all his public rallies in the poll-bound state and advised all other politicians to think about the consequences of holding large public rallies.
'In view of the Covid situation, I am suspending all my public rallies in West Bengal. I would advise all political leaders to think deeply about the consequences of holding large public rallies under the current circumstances,' he tweeted.
The Congress has been critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah for holding political rallies amid the rise in coronavirus cases in the country.
