Centre Condemns Delhi CM Kejriwal's Statement On "Singapore Variant"
The Centre on May 19 slammed Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's statements which claimed that Singapore strain of coronavirus can usher third wave of COVID-19 in India. External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar tweeted, "Irresponsible comments from those who should know better can damage long-standing partnerships. So, let me clarify- Delhi CM does not speak for India". Singapore had also objected to Kejriwal's statement, saying the variant concerned originated from India itself.
