Lockdown may increase death toll: Rahul writes to PM

Mar 29, 2020 22:18 IST

Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi Sunday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and urged him to consider the consequences of a ‘complete economic shutdown’ as it may ‘disastrously amplify the death toll’ due to coronavirus pandemic. While backing the Centre in its fight against the outbreak, Gandhi said, it is critical to understand that India’s conditions are unique. Suspecting that the government will further extend the 21-day lockdown, Rahul said it is time to immediately strengthen the social safety net and use every public resource to support and shelter the working poor to prevent them from migrating.
