Heartfelt thanks to all our armed forces, Medical & supporting Staff, all those Nations supporting in this time of crisis & all those ppl who have been supportive.
our population is a big problem, go nment should act seriously on population act and common civil code. Most of our resources are being used by illegal Rohingya and Bangaldeshi immigrants. This should be stopped.
Our go nment slept for months now we are spending crores and crores of money to get oxygen tankers. I know that this is not the time to think about wastage of money but this could have been used for building super speciality hospitals for saving lakhs of our citizens. We should be proud of our Navy for the great support
Our Sincere thanks to Friendly countries...
Indian Navy Zindabad. Congrats PM Modi, due to your visionary foreign policies, whole world is standing with Bharat. Jai Ho
There is a saying which goes like - You can't solve a problem until you admit you have one. Just yesterday, Feku's health ministry reiterated that the country has no shortage of oxygen. In the meantime, our warships were bringing hl oxygen from the Gulf states. It just does not add up.
well initiative by NDA gov. appreciate fight ag inst covid 19.
request to state gov. do not play po itics
This is a never before situation and all go nment machineries, be it central or states, failed to forecast the situations. But now go nments are in action mode and we hope to see some improvements.
WHAT WAS INDIAN PUBLIC DOING??¿ THEY EVEN FAILED TO WEAR A MASK PROPERLY AND NOW BLAMING GOVERNMENT
We thank you Bahrain for standing with us in these dark moments in the history of our nation.
Finally warships are been used to supply Oxygen.
late wake up by Modiji ,after heavy dge done... but better late than never....
Never knew Idiot PM was so stupid so as to ignore the Vir s and kept campaigning.
This is what happens when an illiterate with low aptitude and IQ is ed to po itical office.
Let us all ve the idiot out in next ion.
I used to like him - NOT ANYMORE!
Since last 5 days 3000 oxygen cylinders from foreign countries are kept in Delhi airport godown and Modi govt don't have time to distribute them while people dying in Delhi. Aid is coming from thousands of km away but govt failed to transport them last mile.
Its good.. but modiji transformed from aatupulukkanirbhar to worldwide begging.
As m Fakir Gudgaonkar
just 1 ship of supplies and so much publicity.never trust bjp.
However, The recently hired 5 lakh Pappu IT cell trolls busy abusing Modi and saying he is not doing anything.
Any distrbution plan?
Good initiative by indian go nment..Inthis situation whatever help we are getting from anywhere from world we have to accept . good work by indian Navy as usual.
BTW if the health minister says no shortage of oxygen then why we need it from abroad. Anyway Armed forces brought the precious oxygen and that is the only thing that matters.
