Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, through a tweet on Monday, took a dig at the centre calling India’s fight against COVID-19 a failure. Gandhi said government policies for fighting COVID-19 have not been fruitful and that they have exposed government’s inefficiency in handling the COVID-19. Gandhi said that centre handling of COVID-19 crisis along with demonetization and GST implementation will be case studies by Harvard Business School.

Along with his tweet, Gandhi attached a video clip of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address to the nation, in which he expressed confidence in winning the COVID-19 battle in 21 days. Gandhi also stressed upon the increasing cases in the country and India reaching the third spot globally in terms of coronavirus cases.

Since the beginning of COVID-19 crisis in India, Gandhi and his party members have been targeting Modi-led government over the situation in the country by comparing its policies with those with the policies of western countries.

Gandhi also held a series of conversations with common people, intellectuals and business leaders, during which he blamed the Modi government trying to consolidate power during the COVID-19 crisis. Gandhi even held interacted with migrant workers and needy who were the most affected during the nationwide lockdown.

Gandhi, during a conversation with former US diplomat Nicholas Burns in June, blamed the centre on taking decisions without consulting other parties. We have a government, which takes decisions unilaterally. It decided to impose a hard lockdown and the result was for everyone to see. You had thousands of migrant workers walking thousands of kilometres to their hometowns. This type of episodic leadership is very very disruptive, he said.
