Priyanka accuses government of ‘suppressing’ COVID data, prioritising propaganda over saving lives
Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday accused the Centre of defeating data related to the Covid pandemic. She said the Modi government’s emphasis on propaganda over saving lives had caused “immense damage”. The Congress general secretary focused on the data related to Covid put out by the government.
Is it more important to save the prime minister’s image she asked in her posts on social media. Further alleging that the government was using data as a “propaganda tool”.
Priyanka Gandhi asked why the Modi was government doing nothing to justify these differences and put the true figures before.
Data is a double-edged sword, she said and its own, it can never reflect the true human cost. The Congress has been critical of the Centre’s handling of the Covid situation in the country, but the government has dispersed the disapproval of the Opposition party, accusing it of politicising the pandemic.
