Amid surging Covid cases, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday attacked the government on shortage of beds and ventilators in hospitals.
Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet, “There is no test, no bed in the hospital, no ventilators, no oxygen, no vaccine, bus utsav ka dhong hai (a festive pretence)… PM cares?”
ना टेस्ट हैं, ना हॉस्पिटल में बेड,
ना वेंटिलेटर हैं, ना ऑक्सीजन,
वैक्सीन भी नहीं है,
बस एक उत्सव का ढोंग है।
