He also alleged that there is no testing, no beds in hospitals, neither ventilators or oxygen and vaccine is also not available.
Mr. Gandhi also took a jibe asking what PM-CARES is doing, as huge donations were given to the fund for handling COVID-19 situation.
“There are no tests or beds in hospitals. There are no ventilators or oxygen. The vaccine is also not there. But there is a sham of a festival. PM-CARES?” he asked.
His attack came after the government celebrated the ‘Tika Utsav’ (vaccine festival) from April 11 to 14.
