With India witnessing a massive spike of COVID-19 cases on Monday, netizens were furious and started demanding Prime Minister Narendra Modi to resign.
The hashtag #Resign_PM_Modi has been trending on Twitter since morning on Tuesday with netizens blaming Prime Minister Modi for the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country.
According to many users, PM Modi should not have permitted mass gatherings like Kumbh Mela and election rallies at a time when the second wave of Covid-19 was on.
“Don’t get hyper for everything u also should realise this time he has made some mistakes like kumbh and elections rallies. It’s time for him to act as a countries PM and take the onus on him and assure everyone he will make it right,” commented a user.
