Why is PM Modi not following the mask rule? Gujarat Congress’ leader Arjun Modhwadia


The Gujarat Congress has questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not following the mask and social distancing rule during his visit to Kutch.

A video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is available on social media which Gujarat Congress leader Arjun Modhwadia retweeted questioning why the Prime Minister was without a mask.

In a tweet, Arjun Modhwadia said, “No mask, no social distancing, the rules have gone for a toss. Prime Minister Modi during his visit to Kutch in Gujarat neither wore a mask nor maintained social distancing. Are the COVID rules not applicable to the PM and BJP leaders? The rules are only for the common man.,”

The 45-second video shows the Prime Minister surrounded by a few officials. He stops at a stall selling masks and interacts with the stall owner but during the conversation, he does not have a mask.

Modi is heard asking the stall owner if the masks are sold here and he tries to give one to the PM but Modi does not take it. He is also seen inquiring about the price of a jacket.
