After addressing crowded rallies across all poll bound states, Rahul Gandhi today took to social media to announce that he will not be addressing any future rallies in West Bengal.
In view of the Covid situation, I am suspending all my public rallies in West Bengal.— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) April 18, 2021
I would advise all political leaders to think deeply about the consequences of holding large public rallies under the current circumstances.
Rahul Gandhi claimed that in view of COVID situation, he is suspending all public rallies in West Bengal with three phases of polling remaining. It is imperative to note here that Rahul Gandhi had continued to hold massive rallies across all poll-bound states, sometimes joined by his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, despite rising COVID cases.
