New Delhi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Saturday alleged that the Narendra Modi government mismanaged the Corona epidemic and allowed the vaccine to be exported and reduced in the country. She also said in a meeting of party chief ministers of party-ruled states and party ministers in Congress-led state governments that there is a need to take stern steps to deal with the spread of corona infection as well as help the weaker sections. Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi was also present in the meeting held through video conference.
Sonia said, “Corona virus infection is increasing and in such a situation, it is our responsibility as the main opposition party to raise issues and pressurize the government to work in public interest instead of adopting public relations tactics.” She stressed that there should be transparency. The government should present the actual figures of infection and death in all the states including the Congress ruled.
Targeting the central government, Sonia said, “We should first focus on the vaccination campaign in India and then export the vaccine and give it to other countries.” We have to emphasize that there should be responsible behavior and all the laws and guidelines related to Covid should be followed without any exception, ” he said.
Sonia said, “Covid cases have increased due to large gathering of people for the elections and religious events. We are all responsible for this to some extent. We need to accept this responsibility and keep the interest of the nation above ourselves.
