Panic divert to corona virus from delhi riots:   Mamata banejee slams modi government  

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday accused the Centre of spreading panic about coronavirus to divert attention from the recent Delhi riots.

"Today some people are shouting corona, corona [coronavirus] a bit too much yes it is a dreaded disease but don’t create panic some channels are hyping it to suppress the Delhi incident do report when it occurs we don’t want it to spread but do remember all those who died in Delhi, did not die of coronavirus."

While addressing a rally in Buniadpur, South Dinajpur district she said, "If they had died of the virus we would have at least known they died due to a dreaded disease but healthy people were mercilessly killed. They [BJP] did not even apologise. Think of the arrogance. They are saying Goli Maro, let me warn them Bengal and UP is not same."

So far India has reported 28 confirmed cases of coronavirus. The deadly Covid-19 disease has claimed more than 3,000 lives and infected more than 90,000 people globally.
