Live news updates: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday launched a scathing attack on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and the Congress party stating that the party had not lost its arrogance even when it had been out of power for so long.

India recorded 83,876 new cases of Covid-19 and 895 deaths from the disease in the last 24 hours, said the health ministry on Monday. The positivity rate is at 7.25 per cent.

Lata Mangeshkar, one of India's best known cultural icons and a singer who defined music for generations, died on Sunday and was given a state funeral as politicians and personalities united in mourning.

"I am anguished beyond words," Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote on Twitter. "She leaves a void in our nation that cannot be filled."

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Sunday Monetary Policy Committee meeting rescheduled by a day after Maharashtra declared a public holiday on February 7 to mourn Mangeshkar’s death. The February 7-9 meeting will now begin on February 8 and its decision on rates will be announced on February 10.
