Health Minister Harsh Vardhan’s resignation is an admission that the Narendra Modi government has failed in managing the Covid-19 pandemic, the Congress said Wednesday and argued that the Prime Minister should take responsibility for the failure since he heads the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).
The opposition party, which had been demanding Vardhan’s resignation, said he has been made the fall guy.
“The NDMA is responsible for criminal mismanagement of COVID19. It is headed by the Prime Minister. Will PM take responsibility for his failures? Or will PM only make Dr. Harsh Vardhan the scapegoat…” Congress communications department head Randeep Surjewala said.
