The World Health Organisation issued a report on COVID-19 fatality counts in which it is shown that India ranks top with more than 47 lakhs of deaths. This brings a platform for the Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to spark a fresh attack on the Modi-led Central Government regarding the number of deaths registered by the Indian authorities.
Taking the social media account, the former Congress Chief accused the Centre and stated, “47 lakhs Indians died due to the Covid pandemic. NOT 4.8 lakh as claimed by the Govt.” Further, he penned, “Science doesn’t LIE. Modi does.” Along with the note, he also posted a graph that shows a Pandemic-Related Absolute Excess Mortality data.
In the post, Rahul Gandhi also expressed his respect for the families who have lost loved ones. Meanwhile, he appealed to the Centre for supporting the families of the Covid-19 victims with the mandated Rs 4 lakh compensation.
