NEW DELHI: The crisis in the country is not just due to coronaviru­s but also because of “antipeople” policies of the central government, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said on Thursday, and called for a solution instead of hollow speeches.

He also attacked the government, alleging it has brought destructio­n and has turned the middle-class poor.

The Congress has been targeting the government over its management of the COVID-19 situation in the country.

“I am quarantine­d at home and sad news is constantly coming in. The crisis in India is not just due to Corona, but due to the anti-people policies of the central government. Don’t give false celebratio­ns and hollow speeches, give the country a solution,” Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.

In another tweet, he said, “The poor are not just a number – they are living people and hundreds of helpless families. Crushing the middle-class and turning them poor, the BJP government has shown how destructio­n can be done.”Gandhi also cited a media report claiming that India has been added to the list of countries having collective poverty after a span of 45 years.

The Congress leader tested positive for COVID-19 this week.
