Indian political strategist Prashant Kishor took a dig at Modi government and tweeted “ While we must appreciate all efforts that showcase our solidarity and demonstrate our resolve to fight #Covid these can’t be substitute for a robust, well thought-out plan and response that is rooted in scientific evidence and is guided by data and best professional experience.”
