All these come at a time the Modi government is facing massive public ire and criticism over its handling of the second wave of Covid-19.
While India is reporting over three lakh cases on a daily basis though the unofficial figure seems much higher, the country is struggling to provide vaccines to all people due to shortage.
The Centre is also bearing the biggest pie of the blame due to the shortage of oxygen in various hospitals.
As per national and international media, hospitals across the country are overwhelmed with Covid patients, crematoriums ran out of dead bodies, pyres burning round the clock while the car parking lots are converted into crematoriums.
