New Delhi [India], May 7 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National General Secretary C T Ravi on Friday slammed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi saying that he could not provide basic health care facilities in Amethi and is now advising Prime Minister Narendra Modi on handling COVID-19 pandemic.

"Runaway MP Rahul Gandhi who could not provide basic Healthcare facilities in Amethi is advising PM Narendra Modi on how to handle #COVID19 pandemic. A "Comedian" who could not serve 25 lakh people is questioning "The KarmaYogi" who is working dedicatedly for 136 crore Indians," Ravi tweeted.
