Why is candlelight vigil set for eve of BJP foundation day, Kumaraswamy challenges PM

BENGALURU, Apr 5 (Agencies): Former Karnataka chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy has dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi to offer a “credible scientific and rational” explanation for choosing April 5 for the candlelight vigil. Kumaraswamy, in a series of tweets, alleged that the PM has “slyly” asked the nation to observe the candlelight vigil on the eve of the foundation day (April 6) of the BJP.
Has the PM slyly asked the nation to observe a candle light vigil on the eve of foundation day of BJP? April 6 being its foundation day, what else can explain the choice of date & time for this event? I challenge the PM to offer a credible scientific and rational explanation.
“The government is yet to provide PPEs for doctors and make testing kits affordable for the common man. Without telling the nation what concrete steps are being taken to combat COVID-19 menace, the prime minister is giving meaningless tasks to an already exhausted population,” tweeted Kumaraswamy.

Dubbing the vigil as a hidden agenda, Kumaraswamy said, “It is shameful to convert the national crisis into an event of self aggrandisement & it is beyond shameful to push the hidden agenda of his party in the face of global calamity. May sense prevail upon the PM.”
Interestingly, on March 22, JD(S) patriarch H.D. Devegowda had clapped from his balcony extending his support to PM’s call for a Janata curfew. Kumaraswamy, too, had tweeted saying he was supporting the call, expressing gratitude to the medical fraternity and police fighting COVID-19. He had also urged the government to offer incentives for the frontline workers.
