Criticising the Uttar Pradesh government over growing COVID-19 cases in the state, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday (July 13) questioned the logic behind imposing a 55-hour-long weekend lockdown – ‘baby pack’ as she called it- in the state.
“No one has understood the logic behind the baby pack of the weekend lockdown,” she tweeted showing the rising number of COVID-19 cases between July 10 and 12, which has stayed above 1,300.

लॉकडाउन के वीकेंड ‘बेबी पैक’ का लॉजिक अब तक किसी को समझ नहीं आया। अपनी असफलता छुपाने के लिए खिलवाड़ जारी है।
