Prakash Javadekar attacks Rahul Gandhi for calling lockdown a failed attempt

IndiaTimes Tuesday, 26 May 2020
"When we imposed the lockdown, Congress made a hue and cry about it and now that we are relaxing it they are criticising it yet again. Many countries including Germany, Brazil, Spain, Italy and China witnessed the damage done to them by the spread of this virus. Comparing that damage with that witnessed by India, we sustained lesser damage," Javadekar said.
