Hemant Soren’s irritable comment came after the Prime Minister had a phone call with the CM of Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Telangana & Jharkhand
New Delhi : Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy on Friday joined union ministers and BJP leaders in defending Prime Minister Narendra Modi, after Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren aimed a dig at the PM over a phone conversation on the Covid-19 pandemic in his state.
However, while the BJP’s responses were predictably furious, Mr. Reddy’s was measured, the YSR Congress chief urged his Jharkhand counterpart to not “indulge in politics that would only weaken our nation… ” and asked him to “come together and strengthen” the centre’s pandemic response.
“Dear Hemant Soren, I have great respect for you… but as a brother I would urge you, no matter what ever our differences are, indulging in such level of politics would only weaken our own nation.” Mr. Reddy tweeted ” In this war against COVID-19, these are the times not to point fingers but to come together and strengthen the hands of our Prime Minister to effectively combat the pandemic”
