Rahul_Gandhi_630_630_570_850NEW DELHI : Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi said that future studies would be done by the Harvard Business School on “failures” to tackle COVID-19 pandemic, demonetisation and GST implementation.
“Future HBS (Harvard Business School) case studies on failure: 1. COVID-19. 2. Demonetisation. 3. GST implementation,” tweeted the Congress leader on Monday.The Congress, which has been deeply critical of the government’s handling of the coronavirus crisis, has added it to what it calls two biggest “failures” of PM Modi’s government – the 2016 demonetization in which two key currency notes that constituted 80 per cent of the country’s cash were junked overnight and the implementation of the GST in 2017.

Attached to the tweet is a clip of a compilation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s previous speeches to the nation, superimposed next to a graph showing the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the country and India overtaking Russia to become the nation with third-highest number of coronavirus cases.
The latest in his attack-a-day tweets includes a video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s national addresses in the country’s fight against the coronavirus outbreak along with the rising graph of India’s coronavirus cases.
Ever since the COVID-19 outbreak started, Rahul Gandhi has been constantly criticising the government over its response to the COVID-19 crisis, comparing its policies with those of the western countries.
In the last few weeks, he has held a series of talks with public intellectuals and business leader from across the world. In these talks, Gandhi repeatedly accused the Modi government of centralising the power. He also spoke about the plight of migrant workers who suffered the most because of the COVID-19 crisis.
When COVID-19 numbers had crossed 5-lakh mark, Gandhi had said that the government “had no plan to defeat it”. During a conversation with former US diplomat Nicholas Burns in June, Gandhi said, “We have a government which takes decisions unilaterally. It decided to impose a hard lockdown and the result was for everyone to see.
You had thousands of migrant workers walking thousands of kilometres to their hometowns. This type of episodic leadership is very very disruptive”.
Meanwhile, going past Russia, India became the nation with the third-highest number of COVID-19 cases in the world yesterday. US and Brazil are the only two countries ahead of India in the international count.
Along with the post, Rahul Gandhi shared a montage of PM Modi’s speeches on the Janata Curfew exercise of clapping and clanging utensils for frontline COVID-19 workers and the lighting of lamps and diyas to express solidarity and resolve in the pandemic crisis. The clip included the Prime Minister’s comment that “the Mahabharata was won in 18 days and the war against corona virus will take 21 days”.
