CPI Appeals Not to Communalise Fight Against COVID-19
Updated: Apr 10, 2020
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement on April 01, 2020 urging everybody not to make use of COVID-19 contagion to further divide the people:
The National Secretariat of Communist Party of India notes with pain that some interested quarters are trying to target one community for the spread of COVID-19 from the religious congregation that took place at Nizamuddin in the national capital. Corona does not infect people looking at their community and caste.
The Party appeals to one and all to desist from any communal divide as it will weaken the united fight against COVID-19. The Party also appeals to all its members to ensure the safety of all citizens from such heinous divisive moves and also appealing to everyone to cooperate volunteering for tests.
The mass testing of citizens free of cost assumes greater importance to the light of more and more hotspots getting identified. Blame game and targeted moves at this juncture will have only negative impact and contagion cannot be contained with such acts. If anybody has to be found fault with, it is the governments which delayed in taking proper timely actions.
