New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday trained guns at the Modi government for going ahead with the construction of the Central Vista project when the entire country is reeling under the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. He also suggested a couple of different options for the government to spend the project’s money on.

The former Congress president opined that Rs 13,450 crore, proposed for the Central Vista project, can be used for vaccinating 45 crore Indians or procuring one crore oxygen cylinders or provide Rs 6,000 to two crore families under NYAY scheme.

Taking to his official Twitter handle, Rahul Gandhi tweeted, “₹13450 crores for Central Vista. Or, for fully vaccinating 45 crore Indians. Or, for 1 crore oxygen cylinders. Or, to give 2 crore families NYAY of ₹6000.”

“But, PM’s ego is bigger than people’s lives,” he tweeted further.

The Wayanad MP’s remarks came amid reports of an expert committee of Environment Ministry’s Expert Appraisal Committee granting approval to projects that are part of the Central Vista Redevelopment Project.

Earlier in the day, Rahul Gandhi accused the Modi government of “complete lack of strategy” in dealing with COVID-19 and said in a tweet that a lockdown is now the only option.

“I just want to make it clear that a lockdown is now the only option because of a complete lack of strategy by GOI. They allowed, rather, they actively helped the virus reach this stage where there’s no other way to stop it. A crime has been committed against India,” he said.

“GOI doesn’t get it. The only way to stop the spread of Corona now is a full lockdown- with the protection of NYAY for the vulnerable sections. GOI’s inaction is killing many innocent people,” he said in another tweet.
