Rahul Gandhi to interact with nurses on July 1

New Delhi, Jun 30 (IANS): As part of the series of interactions, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will hold a conversation on Wednesday with nurses at the front-line of battle against Covid-19.

"Tomorrow 10 AM onwards, across all my social media platforms, watch my conversation with Indian Nurses from around the world, who are on the frontline of the battle against #Covid19," Rahul Gandhi tweeted on Tuesday.

Earlier, he interacted with former RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan, Nobel Laureate Abhijeet Banerji, epidemiologist Johan Geseicke and industrialist Rajiv Bajaj.

The most recent interaction was with Nicholas Burns, professor of diplomacy at Harvard's Kennedy School, on June 12 on the impact of Covid-19 on the world order. At the conversation, Burns said, "We are not looking for a conflict with China, but waging of a battle of ideas with China."

Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the day, Rahul Gandhi said, "Coronavirus has caused irreversible damage to the poor, middle and salaried classes; we have demanded the government to implement NYAY scheme even if it is for six months. The government should transfer Rs 7,500 per month to accounts of the poor."

He also attacked the central government for raising fuel prices in the last three weeks, since June 7.

    We have not seen the PM interacting with the either the intellectuals or the important individuals in different fraternity during this crisis. Leader need to show his leadership qualities by encouraging people, be with people so that all can work unitedly to overcome the hurdles during this crisis. He is always in the oblivion and nobody knows what actually he is doing.

    Now a member from Principal opposition party is conversing with people of different walks of life and why the ruling party or the supporters should have the problem. These type of interactions may help the government as well as they will get to know their problems and their suggestions.

    PM needs to be more proactive and this will help to instill confidence in the people. Otherwise people will still doubt the capability of the leadership

    Congress is so stupid they want political novices to do the talking. If a party does not support the brilliant people like Shashi Tharoor, it has no future.

    The four Indian nurses -- Anu Ragnat (working in New Zealand), Narendra Singh (working in Australia), Sherlymol Puravady (working in the UK), and Vipin Krishnan (working in AIIMS, Delhi) -- will be in conversation with Gandhi.

    My question why not our own ASHA karyakarthas?
    Their family life disturbed due to the current COVID 19 situation

    Mosaralli Kallu ???

    The nation's PM is dong one way communication. Airs emotional vocabulary like 'Mere Deshvasion' 'Bhaion Behno', read what is given to him and disappear in the thin air. Has he given one face-to-face interview to a common newspaper ? A random one. Not the Arnab Goswami type media.

    Therefore, don't watch RG's interaction if you are not interested. Just like I don't - never even one Monkey Baath.

    Dear Ina/Mina,
    The problem is that you did not tried to understand the basis of interaction. You did your homework about with WHOM Rahul is going to interact.
    New Zealand and Australia did a wonderful job in containing the virus (though my friend from Melbourne might say that Morrison should take a leaf out of Modi's book).
    Apart from the recent second wave in Victoria, Australia is going very good and NZ already became the role model. I don't say that UK is a success story but he wanted to see what are their thoughts to one India from Delhi.
    We all have friends all over the world and might even discuss the strategy that they employed to contain virus but it is not done publicly.
    This is a chance for Indian nurses, managers, officials to learn from the experience of those who did a good job.
    What are you going to get by interacting with ASHA workers?? Yes, we will find out the problems that they are facing for sure, but then why there is state and central government there, if they can not get feed back from ASHA workers?
    You will never understand the logic behind all these interactions if you try to look to Bajpe in one eye and to Valencia in the other. Both eyes should be looking at the same thing.

    As a oppostion leader and future framed PM of India, Its rahul Gandhi's duty to interact with all kind of people associated with current COVID 19 issue.

    By providing couple of questionnairre to selected ones and iteracting with them, nothing will happen!

    Both ruling as well as oppostion leaders have same responsiblities during this pandemic issue.
