PM repeatedly felicitated UP CM --- as best governance model --- No. 1 in India (as per a State Ad-campaign)............despite such shocking data on malnourished / stunted growth children.....
this is paid news....for congi propoganada
How? It's Smriti Irani giving the details! Read news once again!
There ia no need for food, income , education, equality , justice or jobs. One can just live off the good vibes created by propoganda and dream of a bright future painted by the Govt . BJP thinks it can manipulate peoples mind and to an extent they do. But hunger and death during Covid times has taught the country a bitter lesson.
India is a land of suffering and chaos. Quality of life in no better than farm animals
UP IS INDIAS SOMALIA
what do you call chennai then ???
This is very damaging news for Yogi ji as election round the corner
And 7 years of BJP rule actually made it worse.
Hindi cow belt is the worst in the country in every important parameter.
tell us what are you good at ? mr. Good for nothing
That's why these cattle class people should not be allowed in South!
Need More Land
75 years of Congress and they could not solve hunger
This is also a mistake of nehruji? MR ANDHBHAKT
And Modiji in last 7 years added 23 crores to that list! During 2004 to 2014, 250 million people were lifted out of poverty! .
BJP lao malnourished ho jao!
Prem Prem Thakur
The fight, running down and bismirching the good name and deeds of Yogi by the Gandhi Congress and it's boot locking cronies will intensify as the date of UP elections approaches.
The current UP regime is interested in mandirs, statues and thok do.
The state and the center must cooperate to set this malaise right. Malnutrition amongst children anywhere is a national shame!
The politicians have no concern for the kids our future generations. All their concerns are to make money that is sufficient for their 7th own generations.
