New Delhi, March 25 (IANS) A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi imposed a 21-day nationwide lockdown in view of the coronavirus outbreak, BJP President J.P. Nadda also held meetings with party leadership and cadres alike through video conferencing to chalk out how to help in relief measures.
A little after 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nadda spoke to select leaders of the party and cadres on possible ways the BJP can use its vast resource of cadres at a time when 133 crore Indians are locked inside their homes.
Since there is a total clampdown on any movement, all state units were asked to offer help to respective state governments who can use them as they deem fit. The Delhi BJP was the first such state unit which earlier wrote to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to offer its resources to fight the outbreak in the capital.
Nadda is also believed to have asked to up the ante on social media to fight any misinformation by quoting Ministry of Health data.
He also highlighted how Prime Minister Modi has reached out to different stakeholders.
This move comes a day after Nadda was engaged in a similar exercise where he communicated with BJP cadres of north India through audio conferencing on Tuesday to discuss about the party’s role in fighting coronavirus. He not only urged them to take this fight against coronavirus to its logical end but also warned against hiding any party meeting or agitation for the next one month.
On Wednesday, India’s confirmed cases of COVID-19 crossed 600.
