Tagging a news report on the findings of the Parliamentary Committee on Health, he tweeted, This is the bitter truth which the Government of India (GOI) tries to cover up by its blatant lies.

In a separate tweet, he accused the Yogi Adityanath government of harassing the Hathras gangrape victims family.
