Gadkari gives BJP tutorial in Covid etiquette
Union Minister Nitin Gadkari has advised BJP leaders and party cadres to not indulge in politics and publicity gimmicks in the present pandemic but instead, work tirelessly to help the needy. At a virtual interaction with party office bearers from Nagpur, Gadkari said, “Don't do politics. Don’t put up hoardings or flags or publicise your work. If people sense political gimmickry, they won’t appreciate it from the heart. You, as well as the party will automatically get credit for your work. Because of the media, it reaches everyone. Don’t try to publicise the supply of one oxygen concentrator with four party workers. It will create a bad impression about you.”
