Congress slams Modi government for refuting Global Hunger Index Report 2022


The Congress party slammed the BJP government on Saturday, saying it is "living in denial" and suppressing facts. This follows India's ranking of 107th out of 121 countries in the Global Hunger Index 2022.

According to the news agency PTI, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge, one of the party's presidential candidates, India has dropped yet again in the hunger index, now ranking 107, trailing every South Asian country except Afghanistan.

"The BJP's denial and attempt to suppress facts has led India to this massive crisis," he tweeted. "Are there any more excuses, Modi ji?" he asked, referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.


The Congress also levelled allegations against the Narendra Modi-led BJP government, claiming that the "Modi government is a recipe for disaster." "India is ranked 107th out of 121 countries in the Hunger Index. The previous year's ranking was 101. Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sudan, Nigeria, and Rwanda are among the countries involved. These nations are in a better position than we are. Was this the 'Acche Din' promised by the impostor Vishwaguru? "On its official Twitter account, the Congress posted in Hindi.

In the Global Hunger Index 2022, India ranked 107th out of 121 countries, far behind its South Asian neighbours, with the highest child wasting rate in the world at 19.3 percent.

The Centre dismissed the findings, claiming they are an attempt to tarnish the country's image, and that the index has serious methodological flaws and is a "erroneous measure" of hunger, while opposition leaders said the government must accept responsibility for its "failure."
