On Wednesday, India reported 9996 new positive cases of the novel coronavirus making it the highest daily increase since the Pandemic broke out. Even as there is panic among people, Union Home Minister Amit Shah has kickstarted Political rallies.

Ahead of the Bihar and West Bengal elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party is leaving no stones unturned to register a win. Despite the pandemic and the state of the economy, the party has kick-started “virtual rallies” in states of Bihar and West Bengal. The man addressing the rallies is the Union Home Minister Amit Shah.


A photo has been circulated on social media where villagers in West Bengal are glued to a brand new LED television and are watching the rally of Amit Shah. This happened at the backdrop of massive devastation caused due to Cyclone Amphan. Apparently, as per a report, the Bharatiya Janata Party had set up 70,000 flat-screen television sets and 15,000 giant LED screens across the state to broadcast the virtual rally of the Home Minister.
