Karnataka MLA distributes ration kits to ASHA workers paying no heed to social distancing norms

When the citizens of India are asked to maintain social distancing to curb the spread of coronavirus, a BJP MLA in Karnataka has turned a blind eye to the whole concept of social distancing

In Karnataka's Davanagere, BJP MLA MP Renukacharya distributed ration kits to ASHA workers. But, the MLA forgot to ensure social distancing norms are maintained at the event. In a video that went viral, the MLA is seen on stage and ASHA workers are seen sitting on the floor, some with masks and some without. And during the entire event, none of them was seen maintaining social distancing.

This comes at a time when the whole nation has adopted social distancing to curb the spread of novel coronavirus.
