Commenting on a study that claimed that India had contributed the most to the rise in global poverty during the COVID-19 pandemic, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi said on Thursday that rebuilding India will begin once Prime Minister Narendra Modi acknowledges his mistakes.

On his twitter handle, Mr. Gandhi shared the findings of the Pew Research Centre and World Bank that said 75 million people went below the global poverty line of living under $2 a day.

“This is the result of GOI's pandemic mismanagement. But we must look at the future now. Rebuilding our country will begin when PM acknowledges his mistakes and seeks help from the experts. Living in denial will not solve anything,” he said, sharing a graphic chart.

The graphic chart quoting World Bank's data on poverty claimed that India’s share in global change is 57.3 per cent and 59.3 per cent for poor and middle income groups respectively.
