Accusing Congress leader Rahul Gandhi of doing politics over Covid-19 deaths, the BJP on Friday said that both — the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) data and Congress’ ‘beta’ (son) — are wrong.
Addressing a press conference at party headquarters here, BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra said that methodology to calculate the estimated death due to Covid-19 by the WHO is flawed and the Government of India had conveyed its objections to the global health body.
“Rahul Gandhi has repeatedly tried to sully Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s image since 2014 and in the process, has harmed India’s image. India has a proper mechanism for registration of birth and death. The WHO’s data and the Congress’ ‘beta’ (Rahul Gandhi) are wrong,” he said.
Patra asked for death analysis of BJP and non-BJP ruled states.
