BJP's lone MLA in Telangana Raja Singh led a singular protest against coronavirus Sunday night by raising slogans of "Chinese virus go back".

The MLA, alongside his supporters, lit torches in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call to switch off electric lights and light 'diyas', candles or flashlight on mobile phones as a mark of solidarity in the fight against the deadly coronavirus.

Holding fire torches in their hands, Raja Singh and his followers raised slogans of "go back, go back, Chinese virus go back", doing opposite of what PM Modi had requested. In his national address, the prime minister made it clear that citizens were to light diyas and candles while maintaining social distancing. 

The controversial MLA, who represents Goshamahal constituency in Hyderabad, was surrounded by dozen supporters, defeating the purpose of social isolation. While Raja Singh and five others were holding fire torches in their hands, others were carrying candles.
