New Delhi: The Congress leader Rahul Gandhi this morning shared four graphs, corresponding to each phase of the lockdown, showing the steady rise in the number of coronavirus cases. Mr Gandhi's tweet comes hours after India breached the 3 lakh coronavirus cases mark with fresh 11,000 cases in the last 24 hours, highest yet.
The baseline figure rises steadily from 0 to 7,500 in the graphs.
Also, the post quoted one of the internet's favorite quotes: Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

The Congress leader has been critical of PM Modi-led government's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, the lockdown and its impact on the economy, and the staggering easing of restriction even as the spike in the cases.
Rahul Gandhi had shared another set of graphs a week earlier, showing how "India's lockdown has failed" in comparison with the other countries,where the number of daily cases felt after the restriction was imposed.

The tweet came clone on heels of Mr. Gandhi's interview of industrialists Rajiv Bajaj who had said that "draconian" but "porous" lockdown to slow the spread of coronavirus up "flattening the wrong curve" and left the country with the worst of both worlds.
In early February, around two weeks after India reported its first coronavirus cases and while the Modi-led government was preparing a visit for the US resident Donald TrumpMr Gandhi had said PM Modi's administration was not taking the "extremely serious threat" seriously enough
