Later, in another tweet, Mr Gandhi said, “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.”
Meanwhile, India recorded 3,57,229 new COVID-19 cases within the past 24 hours, pushing the active caseload to 1,99,25,604, the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) said on Tuesday.
Within the same period, the death toll has risen by 3,449 and now stands at 2,22,408. (UNI)
