Hyderabad MP and All India Majilis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of being successful in “managing the media”, and said that the government failed miserably in containing coronavirus.
Owaisi said: “Modi has taken the country for a ride. When lakhs of migrant labourers reached their homes, the PM is lifting the lockdown. When there were 500 cases in India, the lockdown was announced, When there are three lakh cases, it is being lifted. The PM can manage newspaper headlines. A young journalist died in Telangana; who is responsible for this? What is the great visionary Narendra Modi doing to contain the coronavirus?” Owaisi reminded that the fatality rate in Gujarat is much higher than the national average.
