Further more, HE called on security agencies to be more lenient on enforcing lockdown orders in states.

“The Poor can be accused of many things, but the poor did not ‘import’ #COVID-19 into our country; Stop killing or convicting them over lockdown violations.

“There should be a more civilized and lenient way of ‘punishing the innocent,” his tweet added.
