BJP govt’s incompetence responsible for second wave: Congress
NEW DELHI: The Congress on Saturday alleged that the country paid the price for the Modi government’s “incompetence” during the second wave of COVID-19.
“When the Modi government should have finalised public health policy to take on the coronavirus on a war footing, it was busy saving the illusory image of the prime minister,” it alleged on its Twitter handle.
“We lost our brothers and sisters due to this government’s incompetence, we will never forget,” the Congress tweeted as the opposition party and its leaders targeted the Centre over the handling of the pandemic with the hashtag “ZimmedarKaun” (who is responsible) and raised the issue of shortage of beds, oxygen and medicines when India was at the crest of the second wave.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said the public knows who is sitting silently even after the pandemic, inflation and unemployment.
“Every person in the country knows the one who is sitting silently even after seeing all – the pandemic, inflation and unemployment,” he tweeted Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra claimed that the world witnessed the prime minister’s “incompetence at governance” during the pandemic.
