“GOI [government of India] doesn’t get it. The only way to stop the spread of Corona now is a full lockdown- with the protection of NYAY for the vulnerable sections. GOI’s inaction is killing many innocent people.”

In the run-up to the 2019 nationwide polls, Congress promised to implement a scheme known as Nyay named after its Hindi acronym (Nyuntam Aay Yojana) if it was voted to energy. Under the scheme, 72,000 a yr was promised to the nation’s poorest households.

Gandhi adopted it up with one other tweet: “I just want to make it clear that a lockdown is now the only option because of a complete lack of strategy by GOI. They allowed, rather, they actively helped the virus reach this stage where there’s no other way to stop it. A crime has been committed against India.”
