New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday attacked the government over its handling of the economy and in tackling coronavirus , and alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is "sleeping at the wheel".

On the state of the economy, he said it is just the beginning of a "tsunami" and things would be worse going forward.

"We can see what is happening to stock market. The economy has been destroyed by the Modi government," Rahul told reporters outside Parliament.

"What we have seen is only the beginning of a tsunami, things will be worse," he said.

He also said that coronavirus is seriously affecting the economy and it is already too late, but the government should take measures to minimise damage.
