INDIA Team Latestly|

Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on May 28 blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “theatrics” for the second wave of the pandemic. He said the only way to prevent more waves is to ensure vaccination of the entire population. He also accused the government of lying about Covid-19 death numbers, saying the figures are “exponentially” higher than what the Centre claims. At a virtual press conference, Gandhi said the Prime Minister should stop worrying about his image, which is “dead and gone”, and address the problem. Calling its vaccination policy flawed, he said multiple waves of the pandemic would hit India if the strategy is not corrected and vaccinations continue at the current pace. Gandhi said the Prime Minister is acting as an “event manager” at a time India needs a war-like effort. He said the government does not have any strategy. Gandhi said the government has not understood the nature of the virus. Gandhi said the Prime Minister is acting as an “event manager” at a time India needs a war-like effort. India will be fully vaccinated by the end of 2021, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said.
