NEW DELHI: Alluding to the increasingly high number of casualties in the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had proved true to his words of promising “shamshan aur kabristan”.
In what appeared to be a reference to PM Modi’s statement at an election rally in Uttar Pradesh in 2017, Rahul Gandhi tweeted, “shamshaan aur kabristan donon.... jo kaha so kiya (crematorium and graveyard both... he did what he said).”
He also used the hashtag “Modi made disaster”.
The Prime Minister’s reference during the 2017 election campaign, however, was to the Samajwadi Party’s policy of offering graveyards financial assistance for building boundary walls, which was criticised by BJP as a possible means to encourage land grab.
