Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari allegedly flouted lockdown rules and social distancing norms to play a cricket match at Sonipat in Haryana on Monday. However, later he came out and said that no norms were violated.
Tiwari visited the Sheikhpura Unique Cricket Stadium at the behest of the owner and later, uploaded a video of him playing. In another video, he was also seen singing a Bhojpuri song for a small crowd. He went on to interact with them while posing for selfies. The organisers have since gone on to claim that all players went through proper sanitisation process and were also maintaining social distancing during the game.
Later, Tiwari tweeted that he wishes that everyone be given sporting spirit by God and how it will boost the immunity.
The Aam Aadmi Party meanwhile, attacked the BJP, questioning Tiwari’s responsibility as an elected representative during the coronavirus crisis.
