Indians Take to Social Media to Slam Modi Government for Mismanaging COVID Response

  • They blame the BJP government for the second surge, for allowing overcrowded, unmasked Kumbh Mela, election rallies.

Indians are taking to social media to slam Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his BJP-led government for their mishandling the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic that’s ravaging the country right now. The hashtag #ResignModi is trending on desi Twitter as netizens want Modi to resign for disastrous handling of the current surge and instead focusing on elections in West Bengal. Most also got a lot of slack for allowing millions to attend the Kumbh Mela in Haridwar. Many took to social media to question the Modi government on how it let the overcrowded and unmasked election rallies and religious congregations continue. Many called out Modi’s hypocrisy to let election rallies continue amid the surge. Some decried the double standards meted out to Hindus who were allowed to attend the Kumbh Mela in alarming numbers, while there’s apparent restriction on Muslims to gather during Ramadan which they are currently observing.
