While Thousands are Dying Daily in the First World...Just a little above 100 have Died in India Till Now...No Leader like our Great Modi ji in the Whole World...
Highest number of Tablighis are also hiding in Maharashtra. Congress NCP are soft on them for vote bank reasons.
'Dhaarpok Modi, got scared of trump when he showed his middle finger and started to allow exports of the drug most need to fight the coronavirus. By doing so he has abandoned the indian poor population to the mercy of nature.
A filipino Tablighi was hiding in my neighbourhood and passed away. Scores of them are still hiding in Maharashtra. It is safe for them here as they are getting protection from the go nment.
Aravindhakshan K PANICKER
Article is not giving real reason for increase in the death in India. It should ewuivocally unhesitantly state and blame Tablighi Jamaat organisers for massive death in many states and call international communities to condemn the activities of these caliphate propogators
Good that we can start sharing some drugs to other countries. In fact tey also need it and they are dependent on countries like us. Lets not be like China
All should act in a joint manner to fight against Corona.
Please do not supply any drug to Pakistan. Even in these difficult times they are still pushing terrorists in our country.
Maharastra's Milawati Government failed miserably because Congress party do not want Lock down...
The govt. is not able to rise to the situation. In MHA, there could have been a lower number. A lot of people were not strictly following the lockdown and were more concerned about food rather than social distancing. They took it in a too relaxed of a manner and put food above all. One can now see the results of the v.lax implementation of lockdown.,
This is a National issue, now an International issue.People should know the consequences if they neglect the instructions to safeguard themselves.
Modi Ji chickened out. One call from Trump and 56" shrunk.
We should keep supplies for trading essential supplies when we need and not just give away to please Trump.
This is War.
Good decision by Mr Modiji. We need American to be on our side and also our good neighbors except for the terror exporter Paki
Trump is a greater power than Modi and can make BJP dance at his will.
numbers are high in Maharashtra because of laxity.
Maharashtra has very worst condition
before criticizing modi think about lakhs of jobs that will be lost if those countries ban medical imports from india after the pandemic is over
from last more than 100 yrs India was & is biggest manufacturing hub for malaria drugs.so it has to do it.
Central & State Govts shall ensure ample supply of PPE Kits for Healthcare Staff in Govt & Private Hospitals and Rapid Testing Kits for quarantined personnel, immediately. Please give top most priority for this to contain spread of this deadly virus.
Indian go nment doing good job
