raga pm 14092020New Delhi: Attacking the Prime Minister yet again regarding the surge in COVID cases, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, on Monday morning, said that the people of the country must “save their own lives because PM is busy with peacock”.

Taking to Twitter on Monday morning, the Wayanad MP wrote that the coronavirus cases in the country will cross 50 lakh this week and active cases will cross 10 million.

He accused the government of implementing the lockdown without a proper plan and said that it was a “product of one man’s ego”, which caused the virus to spread across the country.

“The Modi government said to be self-sufficient (atmanirbhar), which means to save your own lives because the PM is busy with peacocks,” he added.

Gandhi was referring to a video shared by PM Narendra Modi on his various social media accounts, where he can be seen spending time with and feeding peacocks and peahens at his Lok Kalyan Marg residence.

Rahul Gandhi, who will be missing the first half of the Parliament’s monsoon session, left the country with his mother and AICC chief, Sonia Gandhi, for her annual check-up.

The number of coronavirus cases in India crossed the 48 lakh-mark with 92,071 new cases in the last 24 hours. As many as 1,136 new Covid-linked deaths were reported.
