"One man and his arrogance + One virus and its mutants," he said in another tweet, citing a report that claimed that "97 percent of Indians are poorer post-COVID".

Gandhi has been critical of the Modi government's handling of the COVID pandemic and its vaccine policy. The BJP has accused the Congress of spreading misinformation and fear on vaccination as part of a campaign against the Modi government.
