This isn't just about agricultural policy. It's also about the persecution of a vocal religious minority. It's police violence, militant nationalism, and attacks on labor rights. It's global authoritarianism. Don't tell me to stay out of your affairs. These are all of our issues.
📍UPGRADED WARNING—@WHO has finally upgraded the warning on contagious #B1617 variant spreading in India as a "variant of concern" at the global level. Prelim studies show it can spread more easily. (WHO has asked for “vaccine escape” be retracted by CNBC)
@LiveLawIndia@shreyagarwal_12 40 Countries citizen are paying their taxes to AID INDIA for the pandemic,
Whilst our Govt is using our taxes for one supreme leader ‘Vanity project’
How pathetic can it get 😕😕
The Modi government seems to care more about its image than the Covid-19 crisis itself. Senior officials meet to control the narrative. When Delhi government complained about supply shortages, India’s solicitor general told it to stop being “a cry baby.” https://t.co/1IFMIjSVvUhttps://t.co/Fs8xtbOf6E
Imagine India was not a democracy. There was an Emperor in New Delhi who addressed his people once a month, strutted around the world before Covid, gave pep-talk littered with religious references at times of crisis, parleyed with kings and other world leaders; Imagine further..
Tell ppl the truth, let them understand the seriousness of the situation. Stop trying to manage the image. Shit had hit the fan, lest we have nothing left. Public should be made aware of realities and how we come out of this!!! https://t.co/UOM9TaC6OR
9) Whisper… solve the logistics bottlenecks in the Covid aid… not the logistics in your presidential palace Dear Supreme Leader @narendramodi. The people need oxygen and medicines more. https://t.co/b3WoGtFlsU
WHERE ARE THE AID? Despite 25 🌏flights loaded with 300 tonnes of emergency #COVID19 relief supplies landing in Delhi 🇮🇳 (5500 oxygen concentrators, 3200 O2 cylinders, & remdesivir) in 5 days, no domestic flights have transported them. Hospitals waiting.🧵https://t.co/2PAvp0GxUyhttps://t.co/UUegIvvvxQ
9) the world only really started hearing about India when the crisis hit wealthy Delhi.
Earlier: “Covid-19 has hit this country with a ferocity not seen before...but not unexpected either".
SHOCKING VISUALS OF BODIES DUMPED IN RIVER
In #Bihar, dead bodies of #COVID19 positive patients are being thrown in the river. The men seen in the visuals are the staff of Katihar Sadar Hospital. WATCH! https://t.co/FlHbMGhPRd
Born in 1950 and sold tea when 8 years old in 1958 at ₹2/cup
1$ was ₹4.76 in 1958
1 gm of gold ₹6
3 cups of tea was enough to buy 1gm of gold
I understand from elders that a decent meal in 1958 cost ₹2
This chaiwala has been cheating people from a very early age https://t.co/KiCxwu8GVQ
