Lashing out at the BJP over its Covid crisis management, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday said that the Centre's "non-vaccination strategy" is acting as a "dagger in Mother India's heart".
He also hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and alleged that the latter’s arrogance has had a disastrous impact on the country.
"Modi Govt’s non vaccination strategy is a dagger in Bharat Mata’s heart. Tragic truth," the Wayanad MP tweeted.
