New Delhi, May 25 (IANS) Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi will start a campaign from Wednesday, “Zimmedar Kaun” (Who is responsible) on the Covid pandemic. She has sought feedback and suggestions from the people.
In a Facebook post she said that during the second wave of the pandemic, when the country was devastated and the people were struggling for medicines, beds and oxygen the government was in mute mode.
She will daily ask questions from the Union government that when the country needed vaccine then it was exported and people lost their loved ones. And when the pandemic is subsiding due to natural causes the government is again visible in the media.
She said asking questions is mandatory so that the government should be prepared for the next Covid wave.
