Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi said on April 26 that the fight against COVID-19 must be fought together as a nation and beyond political alignments.

In an interview with The Indian Express, Gandhi said that fighting the novel coronavirus pandemic is not a battle between the Center and the states. “We believe that fighting COVID-19 is not a “You versus Us” battle, but is an “Us versus Corona” battle. This battle is, therefore, beyond political alignments. We have to fight this battle together as a nation.”

“The Modi government must realise that the battle is against COVID-19, not against the Congress or other political opponents,” Gandhi said.

The 74-year-old leader of the Congress party said that she was “deeply saddened by the contemptuous response” of the Central government to suggestions sent by her, former prime minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and former party chief Rahul Gandhi at various times.
