Rajiv Bajaj criticised as Bike Plant affected by Corona
As Rajiv Bajaj waded into the lockdown decision, many supporters of PM Modi were deeply upset not just due to the comments but because these comments were made in a conversation with Rahul Gandhi
The Waluj plant that was affected is focussed on Exports. While Bajaj was struggling in the domestic market on account of Corona Lockdown, exports had fallen only by half. Bajaj sold 94000 two wheelers internationally in May.
This led to a spate of comments from right wing twitter handles questioning the wisdom of Mr. Bajaj’s comments early this month
Mr. Siddharth Shirole, MLA from Pune Shivaji Nagar pointed out to the Bajaj situation and laid out reasons why a Lockdown was necessary
This is not an “I told you so” post, but its about reminding cynics,the Modi-haters, the arm chair epidemiologists who had called the #Lockdown a draconian measure & advocated sacrificing the lives of our elders and vulnerable for their so called version of greater good. (1/4)
Heard someone named Rajiv Bajaj (some bigshot at #BajajAuto, probably) on TV, criticize govt decision to implement #Lockdown a couple of months ago. What does that #Bajaj morons have to say now?#Covid_19 https://t.co/Hw8W1GUcGh
