AM FROM VARANASI. IT PAINS TO SEE MODI VISITED 17 TIMES TO WEST BENGAL TO DO HIS TEHEATRICS BUT DID NOT VISIT HIS OWN CONSTITUENCY EVEN ONCE. WHAT SORT OF PM IS HE ?
What 36,110? Multiply by 10. Criminally undercounted by Modi govt. All the national media are shut down at the direction of the Indian go nment. Only international media is showing the correct and true image of the drastic situation of India. Incognito PM is hiding in his cave leaving people on their own.
Today there is no place to even cremate, thats how pathetic the situaion is.
FEKU FOOLED GULLIBLE MASSES WITH FALSE PROMISES. HE BUILT STATUES, BOUGHT HIS NEW PLANE, BUILDING CENTRAL VISTA IN DELHI. TOTAL COST APPROX 15000 CRORES. SHAME ON HIM. HE MADE CITIZENS THINK WE ARE SUPERPOWER WITH 5 TRILLION ECONOMY AND NOW HELPLESS PEOPLE DYING ON STREETS FOR THE LACK OF OXYGEN!!!!
'Modi is in hiding'
Mr Modi has often talked about his "special bond" with the river Ganges, the ancient city of Varanasi, and the city's people. But as the vir s has ravaged the city and the medical infrastructure col psed, Mr Modi has stayed clear of his constituency.
Even Mayawati as PM would have done a better job in the fight ag inst Covid 19 in India
In the midst of the pandemic , Modi bought two planes for his travel and building bunglows in Delhi. Shame on him. We have a leader whose priorities are not the welfare of the people.
Mr. Fukeer, take you jhula and go to Himya. Leave us alone, we want to live.
Interesting point is that all our neighbouring countries are more or less in a much better position with respect to the pandemic. Bhutan has been supplying oxygen to Assam. Bangladesh sent us medicines. This unequivocally proves that the present re gie has failed.
This vishawguru started begging from bangladesh, bhutan , pakistan and from is mic countries as well.How shameful, isn’t andhbhakats? Now its fenku ‘O’ fenku instead of didi O didi...
We ved based on re gion, caste and other trivial things! We are rea what we sowed!
India should hire a African Presi nt in its fight ag inst Covid 19. See the figures of Nigeria Senegal Gabon Gambia DRC and Uganda and even Kenya
Every body knows that the numbers are under reported. The real death rates are far higher. Gross negligence by Modi go nment.
Now where are all those useless po iticians who use to brag about India's numbers. will they be held accountable of failure on every front be it vaccine, mortality, infections?
Request our apex court and honorable high courts to mon or the real mortality statistics. The condition in crematorium and graveyards belies govt figures.
Death toll in UP is 10 times.
BJPs priorities are completely different! They are not at all interested in the welfare of the country and people!. People made a wrong choice in 2014 and karma has come back to them!
refer to international media for such news,they show the true picture. GOD save us!
Modiji is busy in building ultra royale ultra luxurious parliament. Don't disturb him with this kind of non sensical news.
Its far more than these figures
