Congress leader and Member of Parliament Rahul Gandhi has intensified his attack on the Union government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This time, he targeted the government over India's mortality rate and declining GDP.

In his tweet made in Hindi, Rahul Gandhi attached a report titled as The Economy & the Pandemic, Asia Nov 17, 2020, which says India's Gross domestic product (GDP) declined by -10.3 percent. The report also India's Covid-19 deaths per million population stood at 95 which is very high compared to other countries.

His attack on the Modi government came days after he targeted the government over Inflation and unemployment. He has come down severely on the central government.

"Banks are in trouble and so is the GDP. Inflation was never so high, nor was unemployment. The morale of the public is crumbling and social justice is being crushed everyday. Development or destruction," his tweet in Hindi read.

This is not the first time the Congress party and leaders targeted the Modi government over handling the Coronavirus situation and the losses faced by the Indian economy due to the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns.

Despite many relaxations given to industries and other firms as part of the unlock guidelines, the Indian economy couldn't survive.

However, the Union Government and Prime Minister openly claimed that they have tackled the pandemic situation very well compared to many big nations. Narendra Modi attributed the lockdowns to the dealing of the Covid-19 situation in the country.
