United States ruled India for 200 years – Uttarakhand CM Tirath Singh Rawat

In another gaffe within a fortnight after assuming office, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat said the “United States ruled India for 200 years”. It was the third comment in a week for which Rawat has been trolled. Earlier, Rawat was trolled for his comment on ripped jeans and equating Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Lord Ram. Uttarakhand Chief Minister said: “As compared to other countries, India is managing Covid 19 crisis better. America, who ruled us for 200 years and ruled the world, is struggling during pandemic. Over 3,75 lakh people died in USA. In Italy, having best health facility in world, lost over 50 lakh people lives and heading for another lock down.”
