The NCP sneered at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday, a day after he met with chief ministers to discuss the coronavirus outbreak, saying it was good that a lockdown was not announced this time, unlike in the past, when it was imposed "without taking people into confidence and without any consideration." The NCP cited the saffron party's five-year "reign of arrogance" in Uttar Pradesh as one of the reasons for several BJP leaders abandoning the party ahead of the state's Assembly elections. On Thursday, Modi held a virtual meeting with the Chief Ministers to discuss the coronavirus issue, which has seen an increase in infection cases due to the Omicron type.

 

Nawab Malik, the NCP's Chief spokesperson and a Maharashtra Minister, said, "People were worried that another round of lockdown was on the way, but it's a good thing that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his meeting with Chief Ministers, asked the states to make decisions based on the situation on the ground. When there was no COVID-19, a lockdown was declared without any thought or care for the people involved." "COVID-19 is causing a lot of problems right now, but people are taking precautions. It's a good thing there wasn't a lockdown proclaimed "he stated.

 

Malik went after the BJP for numerous of its leaders resigning in the run-up to the assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh "The BJP's exodus of state ministers and MLAs will continue. The BJP's loss of leaders appears to be due to its five-year rule of arrogance, insulting others, and instilling terror in rural." "In the coming days, I believe the BJP will lose more leaders. These are clear signs that Uttar Pradesh is changing, and the BJP is losing the war "According to the NCP's leader.
