Biggest financial crisis since what, World War II? Lmao. Well that’s a great joke there. Biggest financial crisis started back when Demonetisation took place, and they didn’t stop there, they needed they cherry on the top, and we have GST.

So ask them to stop cracking jokes. The pandemic might set us back a couple of years, maybe 3. We were already having an economical crisis is the main point. Now they will try to turn the table on this corona situation and come out of it as a winner.

Indian poor knows how to survive with very little money. they will also get food from govt via ration shops. Its the salaried middle class, addicted to credit cards and EMIs, and debarred from the govt support, who are going to suffer.
