Rahul Gandhi

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday alleged that the Central government is putting Indian lives at risk by purchasing sub-standard ventilators for the fight against Covid-19.

Quoting an article, Gandhi tweeted, “PMCares opacity is: 1. Putting Indian lives at risk. 2. Ensuring public money is used to buy sub-standard products.”

The Congress leader even used a hashtag “BJP fails Corona Fight”.

Quoting a former employee, the news article alleged that PM CARES Ventilator Maker AgVa has “fudged” software in order to hide “poor performance”.

Gandhi’s tweet comes soon after Congress asked four specific questions to the Centre, mostly revolving around the makers, the tendering process and price.
