Congress MP Rahul Gandhi attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, drawing a comparison between him and ventilators provided under the PM-CARES fund, some of which have been reportedly found to be faulty.

Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter to launch an attack on PM Modi. He Wrote: “There’s a lot [in] common between PMCares ventilator[s] and the PM himself: too much false PR, don’t do their respective jobs and nowhere in sight when needed.”

Rahul Gandhi’s reaction came after several media reports claimed that the ventilators provided under the PM CARES Fund, mostly to Congress-ruled states, for treatment of Covid-19 patients didn’t work properly.

Earlier, Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee spokesperson Sachin Sawant accused the Central government of providing faulty ventilators and called for a state-level inquiry into the matter.

Sachin Sawant tweeted a copy of a report by the Government Medical College in Aurangabad that claimed all 25 ventilators supplied to the institution under the PM CARES fund were defective.

India has been struggling to meet the high demand for ventilators, medical oxygen and ICU beds during the ongoing second wave of Covid-19 that has overwhelmed the health infrastructure resulting in a high rate of deaths.

Meanwhile, India, in the last 24 hours, recorded 2,81,386 new Covid-19 cases. However, 4,106 people succumbed to the disease in the said period, which pushed up the death toll to 274,390.
