Congress MP Shashi Tharoor questioning India’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic in Lahore Literature Festival of all places.
"The Indian government is not doing well and the people realize this. Rahul Gandhi mentioned as early as February that Covid-19 must be taken seriously otherwise India will face economic catastrophe so he should get credit for it," said Tharoor.
We are fighting against bigotry and prejudice in India arising because of a pandemic. Tablighi Jamaat super-spreader event was used to justify open bigotry and discrimination against the Muslims, Tharoor said.
Reacting to Tharoor's statements, the BJP launched a scathing attack on the Thiruvananthapuram MP for 'defaming' India at a Pakistan stage.
