Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (Congress general secretary) on Tuesday criticized the Narendra Modi government over the ‘mismanagement’ of the second wave of the pandemic and said the Prime Minister ‘neglected’ to give time and effort at a critical time.
The difference in how the state is tackling the first and the second wave is horrific. It had a whole year to prepare for this but it did nothing, said Ms. Vadra in an IAN meeting. “The PM has totally neglected to give a feeling of security and positivity or authority during this life-threatening pandemic we are confronting. It is shocking that day before yesterday, he was on a public stage tending to a huge number of individuals with no COVID convention and snickering at the same time whereas the whole nation is in tears,” she said.
There are no clinic beds accessible, prescriptions are running low, crematoriums are full, front-line workers are exhausted. She said when the public authority ought to be focussing on battling the disastrous circumstance, the Prime Minister keeps on tending to political race rallies.
“Indeed, even helpful ideas from the Opposition parties are being excused as politicization instead of being acknowledged in the soul that the country is in a grave emergency and each and every life matters. Hence, we all should stand together and do whatever we can to save lives,” Ms. Vadra said.
