Rahul Gandhi, in one of his sharpest attacks on the government’s handling of Covid, said today that Prime Minister Narendra Modi “was responsible for the second wave” and that he “did not understand Covid at all”.
“The first wave no one understood…but the second wave is the PM’s responsibility,” the Congress leader said, addressing a virtual press conference.
He accused PM Modi of “ignorance” on the virus.
“You have left the door open and have still not shut the door. US has vaccinated half its population. Brazil has vaccinated 8 to 9 per cent. They are not the vaccine capital, we are. We make vaccines,” he said.
