Priyanka Gandhi takes jibe at Modi over praise of UP govt's Covid handling
Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Friday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for praising the Uttar Pradesh government for its handling of the Covid crisis, saying his "certificate" cannot hide the truth of the Yogi Adityanath dispensation's "cruelty, negligence and mismanagement" during the second wave of the coronavirus.
Modi, during his visit to his parliamentary constituency Varanasi on Thursday, praised the Uttar Pradesh government for its handling of the Covid crisis and said the way it had controlled the second wave was "unprecedented".
"Modi ji's certificate cannot hide the truth of Yogi government's aggressive cruelty, negligence and mismanagement during the second wave of coronavirus spread in Uttar Pradesh," Priyanka Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.
"People faced enormous hardships, helplessness alone. This truth can be forgotten by Modi ji, Yogi ji, but not by those who suffered the pain of coronavirus," the Congress general secretary in-charge UP said.
मोदी जी के सर्टिफिकेट से यूपी में कोरोना की दूसरी लहर के दौरान योगी सरकार की आक्रामक क्रूरता, लापरवाही और अव्यवस्था की सच्चाई छिप नहीं सकती।— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) July 16, 2021
लोगों ने अपार पीड़ा, बेबसी का सामना अकेले किया। इस सच्चाई को मोदीजी, योगीजी भूल सकते हैं, जिन्होंने कोरोना का दर्द सहा, वे नहीं भूलेंगे
Describing the efforts of the Uttar Pradesh government in combating COVID-19 as "commendable", the prime minister had said the state's population is more than a dozen big countries but the way "it has controlled the second wave of coronavirus and stopped its spread is unprecedented".
