I think the coronavirus will be renamed ‘Poverty Virus’ in history books. The condition of the poor has deteriorated further because of the pandemic and the government has not taken any serious action in their favour. They are suffering due to no bread and butter. And our government is busy wasting money to build the Ram Mandir, ignoring the issues of the underprivileged classes.
A poor man suffering from hunger is forced to pray to God about his adverse conditions. How can a man with an empty stomach concentrate his mind in prayer? PM Narendra Modi doesn’t understand or doesn’t want to understand the problems of the underprivileged classes. I don’t know what the future of our country holds. If we manage to get rid of Covid-19, the problem of extreme poverty will still linger. Due to the lockdown, many poor people are spending their nominal deposit funds to feed themselves. The future of our country is uncertain if their problems continue to be neglected.
What is the logic behind building the Ram Mandir when most low-income families are suffering from hunger and dying due to malnutrition during the lockdown? Most financially sound people are recovering from Covid-19, but who cares for the poor who are dying due to starvation? In my opinion, the real reason behind closing small shops on weekends is for the profit of big conglomerates such as Big Bazaar and Grofers, who can deliver their goods online and are not affected by the state-enforced lockdown.
It is challenging for migrant workers to arrange meals for themselves during the lockdown. I am shocked and surprised by the attitude of our government, who have decided to give priority to God more than His creation, i.e. humans who are dying due to this pandemic. I think God wouldn’t be so selfish and would look after his children just like parents who sleep hungry to save money for their children to arrange food for the next day.
Instead of saving money in this economic crisis, our government is fooling people and the corporate media is promoting the blind faith for PM Modi. He seems to always be right in his decisions, even if they prove to be wrong and not in favour of ordinary people.
