Gujarat govt slams Rahul Gandhi’s Covid claim

Prime News, National (Ahmedabad), Nov 25:- The BJP government in Gujarat on Wednesday strongly refuted Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s claim that nearly 3 lakh people have died due to COVID-19 so far as against the official tally of around 10,000 and dubbed his remark as an attempt to misguide people and malign the state.

A Gujarat minister challenged Rahul Gandhi to take a similar stand on states where the Congress is in power on its own or in coalition and declare that their official COVID-19 death figures were also fabricated.

Responding to Rahul Gandhi’s charge, Gujarat Education Minister and government’s spokesperson Jitu Vaghani said there is a difference between people who succumbed to Covid and deaths occurring due to other ailments during the pandemic period.

“Rahul Gandhi’s allegation that 3 lakh people have lost their lives due to coronavirus in Gujarat is baseless and unfounded. We condemn such attempts to malign Gujarat. This is being done by the Congress as part of their agenda to incite people and create panic among the masses through falsehood,” Vaghani told reporters in Gandhinagar. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
