New Delhi, June 2, 2020-
In wake of the Central government beginning ‘Unlock 1’, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, as part of his series of discussions with experts on various aspects of the Covid-19 crisis, will be interacting with industrialist Rajiv Bajaj and this will streamed from 10 a.m. on Thursday on all his social media platforms.
In a teaser released by the Congress, Bajaj, asked by Gandhi about opening up of the supply chain, said that there is no unlocking as such, if a factory opens up and if any case is detected, it is shut again.
“I am not seeing smooth, concerted rhythmic move towards unlocking of the supply chain,” the Bajaj Auto Managing Director said.
He said that the alignment within the system is missing as there are divergent views from the upper to lower leves, so there is need of alignment from the Union government to the DM (District Magistrate) level.
This will Gandhi’s fourth such interaction in his ongoing series of dialogues with globally recognised experts in the fields of economics, social sciences, healthcare and other fields on the tackling the Covid-19 crisis. The former Congress chief spoke to globally renowned public health expert, Professor Ashish Jha of Harvard and Swedish epidemiologist Johan Giesecke, Professor Emeritus at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm.
Gandhi had also spoken to world renowned economist and former RBI Governor Dr Raghuram Rajan and Nobel Economics laureate, Professor Abhijit Banerjee. (Agency)
