15 SEP 2020 Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday attacked the government for stating in Parliament on Monday — the first day of the 18-day uninterrupted monsoon session — that it did not know how many migrant workers had died during the coronavirus disease (Covid-19)-induced lockdown while returning to their native places.
“Modi government does not know how many migrant workers died or how many people lost their jobs during the lockdown,” he tweeted in Hindi.
“You didn’t count so what, nobody died? Yes, but it is unfortunate that there was no impact on the government. The world saw them dying but the Modi government remained clueless,” Gandhi added.
