Kolkata: Poll strategist Prashant Kishor, who is looking after the Trinamool Congress' election strategy in West Bengal, on Tuesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of ignoring the COVID-19 crisis to hide his lack of understanding and foresightedness. Kishor's statement came after 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.

An eight-phase assembly election is being held in West Bengal between 27 March and 29 April and votes will be counted on 2 May.
