Coronavirus Pandemic: Over 40 lakh Indians died in India, says Rahul Gandhi
New Delhi : Congress leader Rahul Gandhi yielded a fresh attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging that he is once again trying to hide his lies. He charged that more than 40 lakh Indians lost their lives during coronavirus pandemic due to government's "negligence".

He also demanded a compensation of Rs 4 lakh each died due to negligence during coronavirus pandemic.
