these pressitutepigs are trying so hard to instill fear in the public
In India people take Coronavirus normal and ready to fight. They have increased their immune system . Let us not create More Hungama but face it boldly.
Media is not reporting recovery and increase in testing
Modi govt is helpless
Congratulations to Modi and his cronies! We are NUMERO UNO, such a remarkable achievement!
THE CREDIT GOES TO MODI AND HIS BHAAKTS.
Modi said the Corona will go in 21 days. He followed advice from Trump. This is what is the result.
Aree Fekuu where is acheee din thali bajaoo, diya jaloo, fekuu coward 56inch total failure govt, he has no dignity to resign after all the failures
Modi had made India number 1. Such a proud moment! Indians will be indebted to Modi. Modi had forced Indian economic development to the pre-independence state!
Modiji can control it in no time. He is just waiting to announce the date and time for " Tali bajao, Thali bajao, Diya jalao and Phul barsao" The virus will disappear. Don't underestimate his power.
Not only PM realized that he is not capable of controlling Covid likes of Germany or Korea but he has started believing that Covid is helping him avoiding protests against his go nment so he does nothing about it.
The 3 top countries with Covid are US, Brazil and India. And look at their leaders attitude and it shows how it trickles down the society. All these 3 leaders do not take it seriously and only worried about staying in power and it shows in the results.
All 3 leaders are born liars and the sad part they do not even know they are lying.
Modi go nment completely failed and ruined country.
Shameful for go nment. We should learn lesson from Pakistan- controlled covid 19 very impressive way, whole world appreciating Pakistan .we soon our great leadership will give the statement that ISI is behind uncontrolled covid 19
Manyam Raja Ram
We congratulate The PM and HM as they want to be World No. 1 in competition with The President of Great US as they are both belong to same category.
When the infection was at its lowest, complete lockdown was imposed. Now it is highest, govt does not bother but go on relax and relax the conditions. Only god can save people from this infection
Almost all countries in the globe have managed to flatten and better still, even bend the curve including USA and Brazil. It is only "us" who are an ignoble exception where the Covid curve is exponentially growing without an end in sight with the peak still miles away.
No Indian govt can do any better than this.
not only in corona cases, India also topped in highest unemployment and highest number odf suicides in the world, because of ill handling of economic situation during this pandemic.
india is now the global corona super power... thanks to the useless lockdowns
Modi go nment should not play with people's lives doing jhumlas always. Must accept it failures and endeavor at increasing medical facilities people at least from now on. Must focus attention on to important issues than talk nonsense all the time.
After Mp govt installed , modi ji did not listen to experts and started his media management naitaki and photo ops his own unique ways mere pyare covid . We are seeing result of his showbazi and nautaki. He put his party and himself first than people
