Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has "without doubt" lost the moral authority to rule for not standing with people in need of medical aid during the second wave of Covid-19 and for playing political one-upmanship in polls instead.

In an interview with PTI, the former union minister launched a hard-hitting attack on the prime minister saying the lack of a credible political alternative did not mean that he should stop discharging his duties believing that his political fortunes are secure.

Sibal also attacked the government for what he called its ineptness to strategise the Covid-19 vaccination, saying it borders on criminal negligence and its priorities in tackling the pandemic are "misplaced and faulty and lack sincerity".

He also said that the toolkit issue is nothing but an attempt to "deploy forgery" to divert public attention from his government's failures.
