Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the Congress, saying that the party let coronavirus spread and caused chaos by provoking migrants to defy Covid curbs.

“Iss Corona kaal me me Congress ne toh hadd kar di [Congress crossed all limits during the Corona pandemic],” PM Modi said during his speech in Parliament.

He added, “In the first wave, when people were told to stay where they were, the Congress instigated them to leave Mumbai. They even provided tickets for the migrants to go from Mumbai to UP and Bihar. You created a ruckus, you violated the lockdown norms and pushed migrants into trouble.”

‘You haven’t shed ego even after decades of defeat’

Congress hasn’t shed its ego even after facing electoral defeat in multiple states for decades now, the PM said.

He stated in Parliament that the Congress has not been in power in multiple states, including West Bengal, Tripura and Tamil Nadu, for many consecutive decades now. “These states are still not ready to accept you [Congress]he said.

“Even after so many defeats, over so many decades, neither has your [Congress party’s] arrogance gone nor has your ecosystem let you shed your arrogance,” said PM Modi.

The Prime Minister further said that if Opposition parties “were connected to the ground”, they would have seen how the government’s schemes have improved the lives of people with its schemes on housing, water connections and gas cylinders.
