Rahul Gandhi Says Covid-19, GST Will be Future Harvard Case Studies on Failure; BJP Chief JP Nadda Hits Back

In particular, Gandhi's attack on the Center came a day after India overtook Russia to become the third nation most affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Congressman Rahul Gandhi launched an attack on the Center on Monday over the growing number of coronavirus cases, saying the government’s handling of the Covid-19 crisis would figure in future case studies from the Harvard Business School.

Shooting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the congressional leader also tweeted a clip that included segments of the prime minister’s addresses to the nation in the Covid-19 pandemic, including his comments that the Mahabharata war was won in 18 days and the war on coronavirus would take 21 days

In addition to this, the clip had a graph depicting the increase in coronavirus cases, making India the third most affected country in terms of case counts.

“Future HBS case studies on failure: 1. Covid19. 2. Demonetisation.3. GST implementation.” Gandhi tweeted along with the clip.

In particular, Gandhi’s attack on the Center came a day after India overtook Russia to become the third nation most affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Only the United States and Brazil are ahead of India in terms of number of cases.

BJP National President JP Nadda, in his scathing reply to Gandhi, said the congressional leader had not attended a “one-time meeting of the Standing Committee on Defense” and was doing everything a “responsible opposition leader should not do. ”

“Rahul Gandhi does not attend a single meeting of Standing Committee on Defence. But sadly, he continues to demoralise the nation, question the valour of our armed forces and do everything that a responsible opposition leader should not do.” Nadda wrote on Twitter.

Nadda said: “Rahul Gandhi belongs to that glorious dynastic tradition when it comes to defense, committees don’t matter, only commissions do. Congress has many deserving members who understand parliamentary affairs, but a dynasty will never allow such leaders grow up. Really sad. ”

Gandhi also said on Sunday that the government was “wasting” the blockade by not increasing health infrastructure and procuring “inferior” ventilators that are vital for critically ill patients with COVID-19. Gandhi also alleged that the “opacity” in the PM Cares Fund is putting the lives of the Indians at risk.

Using the hashtag “BJPfailsCoronaFight”, Gandhi tweeted: “PMCares opacity is: 1. Putting Indian lives at risk. 2. Ensuring public money is used to buy sub-standard products.”
