UP BJP leader ditches candles, shoots in the air, to drive virus away

Apr 06, 2020 15:34 IST

When Indians united to light diyas and candles answering PM Modi's call for nine minutes at 9pm, Manju Tiwari, a local chief of BJP Mahila Wing in Uttar Pradesh, chose her revolver to 'fight' the coronavirus. In a video, Tiwari can be seen holding a revolver, which reportedly belonged to her husband Om Prakash, and firing aimlessly in the air. The video she uploaded on her facebook page, immediately went viral, with netizens asking for action to be taken against her. Tiwari has now apologised, with a bizarre logic. She says, it felt like it was Diwali and she fired in the air out of jubilation. She wasn't however the only one. BJP's lone MLA in Telangana, Raja Singh, led a unique mashaal march, against coronavirus on Sunday night by raising slogans of "Chinese virus go back".
