We did thaali-taali to encourage Corona warriors: Mansukh Mandaviya

New Delhi: Union Minister for Health & Family Welfare Mansukh Mandaviya said 'thaali-taali' during lockdown was done to encourage Corona warriors- policemen, healthcare staff.

In his reply in Rajya Sabha, Mansukh Mandaviya said, "They say, why did we do 'thaali-taali'? We did it to encourage Corona warriors. We did it for the Policemen standing on the roads for our protection; we did it in honour of the healthcare staff - from the lowest to the highest level - who worked during the Corona pandemic."

Mandaviya condemned politicising the pandemic saying the Centre doesn't discriminate between states.

"When there's a need to work together and implementation has to be done by the states, we never said that this state failed or that state didn't do this. I don't want to do politics, but many states have 10-15 lakh doses of vaccines with them; I have data," said Mandaviya.

Our Government has always said that this crisis shouldn't become a reason for politics. There shouldn't be politics in this crisis…PM Modi has said that when 130 cr people of India take one step forward, the country can move forward by 130 cr steps.

On the 3rd wave of the Covid-19, he urged 130 crore Indians to make a collective decision the pandemic.
