Former Uttarakhand CM Trivendra Singh Rawat Calls Coronavirus "A Living Being Which Had The Right To Live"
Lucknow, May 14 (TNA) Gone are the days when BJP leaders were prescribing cow dung bath and consumption of cow urine as treatment for Coronavirus. They seem to have graduated a wee bit further.
And so now the former Uttarakhand chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat has called the Coronavirus "a living entity" which too had "the right to live and exist".
He made this statement in an interview with a television channel. The Senior BJP leader has come under heavy fire for this statement and people on the social media have slammed Rawat for being irresponsible and frivolous.
The statement that "if seen philosophically" the virus had the right to coexist, a Twitter user said will then of course "be having an Aadhar and a ration card".
Another one said that this living being should be accommodated in the multi-crore Central Vista project of the prime minister.
