During Lok Sabha session, Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury called Centre a 'no data government'.

Reports say over 1,000 died. When we ask questions on jobs, govt says it doesn't have data. This is a 'no data govt'." He further said, "More than 2 crores salaried employees have lost their job. 14 lakh workers have no work now. How can we expect growth in such a scenario."
