Rahul Gandhi repeats his Doklam, Rafale stunts again, attacks Modi govt over coronavirus while admitting he is ‘no expert’ on what has to be done

Claiming that there was "no preparation" by the government to tackle coronavirus, he said the government was "asleep" and did not realise that the virus was spreading in this country and was going to have devastating consequences.

On Friday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi attacked the government over the handling of the coronavirus situation, alleging that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is ‘ignoring’ the health crisis. Congress prince Rahul Gandhi also claimed that the government was not taking the problem seriously.

“I have been saying that coronavirus is a very serious problem and the government has not taken action on it the way it should have,” said Rahul Gandhi on Thursday as he targetted Modi government alleging that Modi government was ill-prepared to handle the Coronavirus crisis.

Claiming that there was “no preparation” by the government to tackle coronavirus, he said the government was “asleep” and did not realise that the virus was spreading in this country and was going to have devastating consequences. He also slammed the government over its response to coronavirus, saying it is not just a virus that is infecting people, but it is a very serious problem for the economy.

The Gandhi-scion also took to Twitter to attack Prime Minister Modi as he said, “I will keep repeating this. The coronavirus is a huge problem. Ignoring the problem is a non-solution. The Indian economy will be destroyed if strong action is not taken. The government is in a stupor.”

Rahul Gandhi, who gave a series of lectures to the Modi government on handling the Corona crisis, however, was as usual high on rhetorics. When asked about the specific suggestions he wished to give to Narendra Modi government on handling the coronavirus, Rahul Gandhi in his quintessential style, ran away from the responsibility by stating that he was not an expert on the subject of Coronavirus.

“I am not an expert and it is not my place to start giving tactical answers to the questions on what should be done to handle the Coronavirus situation,” said Rahul Gandhi.

Ever since the deadly coronavirus outbreak occurred, the Indian government has been extremely proactive in handling the ongoing crisis and has taken effective steps to ensure that the contagious virus is contained to make sure that virus does not spread.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has himself taken the responsibility to handle the emerging health crisis and has time and again urged the people of the country not to panic amidst the Coronavirus scare in the country.

Just last week, in a series of tweets, PM Modi had urged people of the country not to panic and listed out the self-protective measures to avoid infection of any kind. PM Modi informed the masses through twitter that he had an extensive review regarding preparedness on the COVID-19 novel coronavirus and different ministries and states are working together from screening people in India to providing prompt medical attention in order to expel out the deadly virus.

Addition to that, the government has been on a high-alert ever since the outbreak occurred and has set up medical facilities and testing centres to detect people who are carrying the COVID-19 virus. The airports, ports and all incoming checkpoints have been put on high alert with setting up quarantine facilities to isolate the positive cases. Indian Army has also set up several quarantine facilities to accommodate Indians who are set to be evacuated from various countries.

Nearly 16,000 people across the country have been kept on community surveillance, more than 500 have been identified as the symptomatic cases and being monitored while 70 are hospitalised.

Following widespread Coronavirus outbreak in China, India initially suspended the e-visa facility for Chinese travellers and foreigners residing in China. Later, with the situation taking a serious turn, the Modi government took a brave decision to suspended all tourist visas and e-visas granted on or before March 11. All incoming visitors including Indian nationals were advised against non-essential travel because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Further, the Indian government had also committed itself to evacuate Indian citizens who were trapped in various countries including China, Iran and various other countries following the global crisis. The Indian government had also sent Air India jumbo B747 to China to evacuate citizens.

The Air India flight made two flights to Wuhan city – the epicentre of the coronavirus epidemic. In the first flight, 324 Indians were evacuated and later another 323 Indians and seven Maldivian citizens were flown back. A total of 57 pilgrims from Ladakh region who had visited Quom, Iran for pilgrimage, were brought by C-17 aircraft on Tuesday. Over 80 people who arrived from Italy on AI flight AI138 on Wednesday have also been quarantined at the Indian Army facility.

It is not new for Rahul Gandhi to generate a hue and cry over issues he later admits he had no idea about. In the past, the Congress prince, despite spending a tremendous amount of time screaming inside and outside the parliament over certain issues, has later admitted that he does not have enough details to suggest what could have been done otherwise.

Rahul had spent a better part of 2018 and 2019 alleging that the Modi government had done a scam in the purchase of Rafale fighter jets, and continued spreading blatant lies, only to admit later that he does not have enough details to point out what could have been done differently. Similarly, despite generating a massive outrage over the Doklam issue, he had admitted later that he does not know enough to point out what could have been done differently.
