Modi ignored Covid crisis: Prashant Kishor

Chennai: Election strategist Prashant Kishor has accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of ignoring the Covid-19 crisis to hide his lack of understanding and foresightedness.

Prashant, who was behind the DMK’s poll strategy and is looking after the Trinamool Congress’ election strategy in West Bengal, said this after PM Modi addressed the nation on the coronavirus situation amid a surge in cases.

He also alleged that the Prime Minister bluffed people to claim victory in the battle against the pandemic.

“ModiGovt handling of crisis: #1: ignore problem to hide lack of understanding & foresightedness #2: suddenly take control, use bluff & bluster to claim victory #3: if problem persists, pass it on to others #4: when situation improves, return with Bhakts” army to take credit,” he tweeted.
