Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi has once again slammed the Modi government for its inept handling of the COVID – 19 pandemic. In a scathing criticism of the Lockdown, Rahul Gandhi said the four phases of nationwide lockdown have “failed” and not given the results that Prime Minister Narendra Modi expected.
Addressing a press conference, he asked the central government to clarify its strategy as far as opening up of India is concerned and how it intends to support migrants and states.
दो महीने पहले लॉक्डाउन लागू करते समय PM ने कहा था कि 21 दिनों में Corona के ख़िलाफ़ जंग जीतेंगे।आज 60 से ज़्यादा दिन बीत चुके हैं और रोज़ मरीज़ों की संख्या ज़बरदस्त तेज़ी से बढ़ रही है।लॉक्डाउन इस वाइरस को हरा नहीं पाया है।मेरा सरकार से सीधा सवाल है- अब आगे क्या योजना है? pic.twitter.com/NULQsX92Pj

“What is the central government’s plan to go forward as the disease is growing exponentially in the country,” he said. “The four stages of lockdown have not given the result that the Prime Minister expected,” he said, adding that it is pretty clear that the aim and purpose of lockdowns have failed in India. He said India is the only country in the world which is relaxing the lockdown when the virus is “exponentially rising”.
