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.
#ModiGovt handling of crisis:
#1: ignore problem to hide lack of understanding & foresightedness
#2: suddenly take control, use bluff & bluster to claim victory
#3: if problem persists, pass it on to others
#4: when situation improves, return with Bhakts’ army to take credit
