Rahul Gandhi on Friday questioned the government's priority in going ahead with the central vista project in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. He alleged that this happening when there are "no tests being done, vaccines are not available and there is shortage of oxygen and ICU beds in the country."

"COVID crisis. No Tests. No Vaccine. No Oxygen. No ICU...Priorities," he had tweeted, attaching a news item that said the government has invited bids for three secretariat buildings under the central vista project.

In a tweet in Hindi today, Rahul Gandhi appealed to the Centre to focus on vaccines, oxygen and other health services instead of "spending on PR and unnecessary projects".

"This crisis will deepen in the coming days. The country has to be prepared to deal with this. The current plight is unbearable!" the former Congress chief said.
