NEW DELHI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday targeted the Narendra Modi government over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic and the economy, saying while the number of Covid-19 deaths was among the highest in the world, its GDP growth was also among the lowest.
“Modi government’s report card: At the forefront in corona mortality, the lowest in GDP rate,” he said in a tweet in Hindi.

Gandhi and the Congress party have attacked the Modi government over the handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and accused it of “destroying” the country’s economy due to its policies.
