innocent poor ppl don’t deserve to suffer coz of irresponsible educated illiterates who flew from infected countries n spread the virus.
min 15 days strict curfew needed to identify and quarantine.
masks n soaps/hand sanitizers and food and some cash for emergency especially for poor should be distributed. there are daily wage earners in unorganized sector who don’t even have bank accts.
y MLA’s are not using the allocated budget for their constituency to distribute the above. they come to each and every household when elections are there and now they dont even show their faces when their constituency ppl are in crisis and need their support.
i read there are unused funds in crores. y this cant be used?
similarly i guess MPs also might have got. (not sure)
wish bjp, congress,aap and all other parties to use the funds they get via donations which are in the tune in thousands of crores. amt is huge which can help in this desperate times.
govt (be it bjp or congress or any) should release package especially for poor instead of bailing out crooked cronies via tax payers money.
corporates which hold functions for awards, which spend money for PR should spend this money now.
out health care system is worst and not at all affordable to poor.
poor ppl will be worst hit.
really disappointing that not even a single party/corporate/entity/bollywood stars/billionaires n many others r going out of the way to do what needs to be done. what are they waiting for?

That is the cost of lockdown, the reason govt wanted to avoid lockdown as much as possible. Anyway for places on lockdown it needs to be done, essentials like food and medicines need to be distributed. The better way would probably be to give them money and keep the shops and kirana stores open and well supplied so that people may buy as they need otherwise people will start hoarding.

One good thing now indian railways has done is it stopped passenger services. Since it is known to mostly spread by human transmission if people dont needlessly travel, atleast the smaller cities can remain open.

You’re expecting too much out of the dumb, hypocritical, bollywood wh*re club which only does anything to push propaganda.
And local politicians only see how much they can get a cut out of the funds. They are still wondering how to best get the funds into their pockets in the name of corona.

I am committing 100 cr towards fighting the Pandemic. #DeshKiZarooratonKeLiye is a pledge that we undertook & this is the time when our country needs us the most. Many people are facing uncertainty & I’m specially concerned about the daily wage earners, we will do our bit to help
