Guwahati: Amidst the coronavirus catastrophe in the nation, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday attacked the BJP government in Gujarat over the state's high COVID-19 mortality rate, saying it had "exposed" the "Gujarat model".
Expressing his concern over the issue, Rahul took to twitter saying, “Covid19 mortality rate: Gujarat: 6.25%, Maharashtra: 3.73%, Rajasthan: 2.32%, Punjab: 2.17%, Puducherry: 1.98%, Jharkhand: 0.5%, Chhattisgarh: 0.35%.”
He added, “Gujarat Model exposed” tagging a media analysis report.
It is to be noted that Gujarat has the fourth-highest number of COVID-19 cases in the country at 24,055 with 1,505 deaths.
Earlier on Monday, Rahul took a jibe at the BJP-led government, quoting Albert Einstein - “The only thing more dangerous than ignorance is arrogance.”
He had also shared a graph in his twitter handle that showed how the four phases of lockdown have flattened the curve of the economy instead of COVID-19 deaths, which are rising in the country.
