Sambit Patra must use his degree to serve people instead of indulging in theatrics: Congress

Sambit-Patra

The Congress on Wednesday once again slammed the BJP over the alleged tool kit shared by BJP National Spokersperson Sambit Patra on the central vista project of the government and said that he should use his degree to save the lives of the people instead of indulging in theatrics.

Responding to a question during the press conference over the alleged toolkit being shared by the BJP once again, Congress General Secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala said, “The BJP plays such games like getting the petition filed in the court, but the Congress has not gone to court.”

He said that the party has submitted its complaint to the Delhi Police.

“They don’t want to answer people on why medicines are not there, why ventilators are not there and why hospital beds are not there but they will indulge in such antics,” he said.

“For how long they will keep on telling lies to people?” asked Surjewala. The party should focus on providing facilities to people instead, he added.

To a question about Patra coming out with another alleged toolkit of the Congress over the central vista project, Surjewala said, “Patra knows that he is going to jail for forging documents. The meta data theory he is showing today is not going to succeed. The central vista doc and the Covid doc that he circulated yesterday are two different ones.”

The Congress leader said that the BJP leader instead of indulging in these “forgery and theatrics,” should use his doctor’s degree to serve people in some Covid ward.

“The time demands service to people. This design of fakery would not succeed,” he added.

Patra on Tuesday has shared an alleged tool kit of Congress over the Covid pandemic and earlier in the day he also came out with another alleged toolkit over the Centre’s central vista project.

The Congress has filed a complaint against BJP chief J.P. Nadda, Patra, Union Minister Smriti Irani, BJP leader B.L. Santosh and others over the alleged toolkit.

Akhilesh-Yadav

 Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Friday took a swipe at Uttar Pradesh Minister Upendra Tiwari for saying that 95 per cent people do not need petrol, and said ‘the truth is that those people do not need the BJP’.

Upendra Tiwari had said that prices of petrol and diesel were not increased much considering per capita income and added that 95 per cent people do not need the petrol.

“The BJP minister said that expensive petrol does not bother the general public because 95 per cent of the people do not need petrol. Now, even the minister will not need it as the people will soon put him out of power. The truth is that 95 per cent of the people do not need the BJP,” Yadav said in a tweet in Hindi.

The SP president also asked, “Does Thar need diesel?”

The obvious reference was to the recent Lakhimpur Kheri incident where four farmers were allegedly mowed down by a jeep (Mahindra Thar) owned by Union Minister Ajay Misra.
