·1-min read

Mumbai, Feb 7 (PTI) Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership, India has tackled the COVID-19 pandemic effectively which the world considers as a 'model', Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Sunday.

Everyone wondered how the country with a huge population and weak health infrastructure would tackle the pandemic, but 'effective steps were taken at the right time', Shah said.

He was speaking at the inauguration of a medical college at Kankavli in Maharashtra's Sindhudurgdistrict.

Targeting the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA-comprising the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress) in Maharashtra, Shah claimed it is a'three-wheel autorickshaw government which has failed on all fronts'.

The Sena parted ways with long-term ally BJP after the Maharashtra Assembly polls in 2019 over the issue of sharing the chief ministerial post in the state.

Sena president Uddhav Thackeray had then claimed that the BJP went back on the promise of sharing the CM's post with his party for two-and-a-half years.

Reacting to it, Shah, who was at that time president of the BJP, said, 'I never give any assurances in closed rooms. Whatever I do, I do it openly.' PTI MR GK GK
