Rahul attacks PM: Pakistan, Lanka testing more than India

Apr 05, 2020 00:03 IST

Comparing the number of people being tested in India for Covid-19 with other countries, former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, on Saturday, took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his appeal to the people to light torches on Sunday, saying shining torches in the sky would not solve the problem. In a tweet, Rahul said India is simply not testing enough to fight Covid-19. He also attached to his tweet a chart, released by the Congress, that showed India was testing only 29 people per million. According to his tweet, Pakistan is testing 67 people per million, Sri Lanka 97, the United Kingdom 1,891, Germany 5,812, Italy 7,122 and South Korea 7,622 per million. Making people clap and shining torches in the sky aren't going to solve the problem, the former Congress chief said.
