L to R: Prithviraj Chavan, Narendra Modi
You take a photo with a peacock or sit on a horse, no denying that the situation of the country is in shambles, said former Chief Minister of Maharashtra Prithviraj Chavan to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday morning.
Chavan added, The central government has clearly failed to control the economy, COVID-19 situation and India-China border issue. To cover all these failures, the Centre stopped the parliamentary work for six months. All those failures should not be discussed in the Parliament; this was the reason behind the closure.
Chavan said, The condition of the central government has become confusing. You take a photo with a peacock, sit on a horse or call it God’s karma; you couldn’t handle the current situation. Centre couldn’t fulfil our expectations. No other country in the world has called COVID-19 as an act of God. ?
Chavan said that as per the Constitution, one cannot stop the work of the Parliament for more than six months. Chavan said, So they started working in the Parliament once before the six months were over. Now when would they resume again, there’s no guarantee.
PM Modi in August had shared a video of feeding peacocks at his official residence. He had titled the video clip as ?precious moments. In the video, Modi could be seen interacting and spending time with the national bird.
