Mumbai, May 18 (PTI) Maharashtra BJP chief Chandrakant Patil on Tuesday criticised the Congress for allegedly coming out with a toolkit in which social media volunteers have been asked to call a new mutant variant of COVID-19 as 'Modi strain' or 'India strain'.
The Congress, however, has denied the allegations and has claimed the BJP was 'propagating a fake 'toolkit' on 'COVID-19 mismanagement' and attributing it to AICC Research Department'.
In a tweet, Patil said the Congress wanted to 'damage the social fabric of the nation' with this toolkit at a time when it is battling the COVID-19 pandemic.
He also accused the Congress of blocking beds through its workers amid the outbreak to strategically release them after tweets of help are put out. PTI ND BNM BNM
