On Tuesday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi lashed out at the Modi government for their ill-preparedness on the deadly coronavirus outbreak and the financial devastation that will follow it. 

Gandhi compared the perils of COVID-19 to a tsunami. So far, India has 126 reported cases of the novel virus, including 3 deaths. He said that the country is going to deeply suffer in the coming 6 months and criticized the centre for "fooling about."

While talking to reporters, the Congress leader said, “The Indian economy is going to be devastated. You have no idea the painful thing the country has suffered and it is coming. It is like a tsunami is coming."

“The water is going to come and I have been warning the government … They are fooling about, they are not clear about what they have to do. India should be preparing itself not just for Covid-19 but for the economic devastation that is coming,” he said.

“I am saying it again and again… I am sorry to say our people are going to go through unimaginable pain in the next six months,” he added.
