New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday accused the government of benefitting by making profits during the coronavirus-induced lockdown when people were in trouble.
He tagged a news report that claimed the Indian Railways was making profit by running ''Shramik trains'' for transporting migrants during the pandemic.
"There are clouds of disease and people are in trouble, but one seeks to benefit -- this anti-people government is converting a disaster into profits and is earning," he said in a tweet in Hindi.
The news report claimed that the railways made a profit of Rs 428 crore by running Shramik special trains during the lockdown that transported migrants to their native places.
"This is a good idea. I had suggested it some time back. Its implementation will need a complete change of mindset," he said on Twitter.
