In his latest dig at the Narendra Modi government, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday (September 12) said its “well planned fight” against the coronavirus has put India in an “abyss” of GDP reduction and job losses.

Rahul Gandhi, who had been consistently criticising the government over its handling of the coronavirus situation and the country’s economy, pointed out the “additional stressed loans” and the “globally highest COVID-19 cases and deaths”.

The government has, however, dismissed Congress’s allegations that the Modi government was not handling the pandemic effectively.


“Modi Govt’s ‘well-planned fight’ against Covid has put India in an abyss of: 1. Historic GDP reduction of 24% 2. 12 crore jobs lost 3. 15.5 lac crores additional stressed loans 4. Globally highest daily Covid cases & deaths,” Gandhi said in his latest tweet.

But for the government of India and the media “sab changa si (all is well)”, the former Congress chief said.

India’s COVID-19 caseload has gone past 46 lakh, while 36,24,196 people have recuperated so far taking the national recovery rate to 77.77 per cent on Saturday, according to Union health ministry data.
