GOA: BJP hit out at Congress for criticising its decision to celebrate Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s 70th birthday through ‘seva saptah’ from September 14 to 20. BJP spokesperson Subhash Phal Dessai said party workers had been working during the pandemic across the country. “I urge Congress state president Girish Chodankar to analyse where his workers were during Covid,” he said.
“During seva saptah we are not doing big birthday celebrations but will reach out to differently-abled persons and provide them necessary equipment,” Dessai said. He said that since there is a deficit of blood in the state, the party has appealed to youths to donate blood. “We have also appealed to persons who have recovered from Covid-19 to donate plasma,” he said.
