Rahul Gandhi’s fresh salvo at the Modi govt where he targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the “unplanned lockdown” calling it a “gift of one man’s ego.”
The Congress leader severely criticized Narendra Modi’s government handling of the pandemic. In a tweet, Rahul Gandhi said people will have to save their own lives because PM is busy with peacocks.
Taking it to Twitter, Rahul Gandhi said, “India’s coronavirus cases will cross 50 lakh this week and active cases will cross 10 lakh. The unplanned lockdown was the gift of one man’s ego, which led to the spread of coronavirus across the country. Modi government said “be self-reliant” which meant “save your own lives” because the Prime Minister is busy with a peacock.”
The jibe was in an apparent reference to a recent video shared on social media of PM Modi feeding the national bird peacock.
Mr. Gandhi left to go abroad last week with his mother and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi for her annual check-up but is constantly active on the microblogging site – Twitter for the past few times. He had earlier also criticized the center’s leadership in handling the coronavirus and economy. However, Union minister Prakash Javadekar had earlier mocked him for his tweets.
“Rahul Gandhi is tweeting on a daily basis. It seems the Congress will become a party of tweets as they are doing no work among the people and losing one leader after another. A frustrated and depressed party is trying to launch all sorts of attacks on the government,” Javadekar had said.
