Gandhi Praises Pakistan's Handling Of COVID19

Leader of India's opposition Congress Party Rahul Gandhi has praised Pakistan's handling of the Coronavirus and severely criticized the Modi-government for handling of the economy amid Pandemic.

Gandhi took a dig at the Modi government over IMF's projection that the Indian Economy is set to contract by a massive 10.3 per cent this year, saying it was another "solid achievement" by the government.

Gandhi took a swipe at the government on twitter by tagging a chart that showed IMF growth projections for 2020-21 for Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal, China, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and India.

The chart showed that the Indian economy is projected to contract by a massive 10.3 per cent this year, the highest contraction among the countries mentioned.

Gandhi tweeted with the chart said another solid achievement by the BJP government. Even Pakistan and Afghanistan handled COVID better than India.
