Hitting hard at the Modi government’s COVID-19 strategy, Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi said its strategy to fight the COVID-19 pandemic consisted of imposing a ‘Tughlaqi lockdown, ringing bells and singing praises to the Lord.
In a tweet in Hindi, Gandhi said, “The Central government’s COVID-19 strategy — Stage 1- Impose a Tughlaqi lockdown, Stage 2- Ring bells, Stage 3- Sing praises to the Lord.”
केंद्र सरकार की कोविड रणनीति-
स्टेज 1- तुग़लक़ी लॉकडाउन लगाओ।
स्टेज 2- घंटी बजाओ।
स्टेज 3- प्रभु के गुण गाओ।
