Much ado about nothing: Congress slams PM’s address to nation, raises question on Covid-19 battle


New Delhi: Congress spokesperson Supriya Shrinate questioned the Covid-19 containment technique of the Centre and in addition demanded solutions on why the monetary wants of poor usually are not being addressed.


Slamming the PM’s address to the nation, she stated the nation had nice expectations from Prime Minister however as an alternative of residing up to our expectations, he as soon as once more belied them.

Full press launch right here:

The nation had nice expectations from the Prime Minister at this time he was in any case addressing the nation however as an alternative of residing up to our expectations he as soon as once more belied them.

We had hoped that the Prime Minister will speak about substantive measures in opposition to Corona pandemic

We have been hoping he was going to converse about the financial break and a blueprint to resolve it

We have been hoping that he would converse about the 14 crore jobs misplaced and take a decisive step to create extra jobs

Doubling rate of COVID-19 cases now stands at 6.2 days: Health Ministry

We hoped he would speak about the wage cuts and speak about the restoration of salaries

We hoped he would speak about the 10 crore labourers who are actually within the villages

We had actually hoped that he would put aside his ego hear to the Congress and announce a Rs.7500 monthly direct money switch to address the distress of our individuals

But most of all we had hoped that he would have a look at China within the eye and collect the braveness for some powerful speak.

But clearly, it was all a lot ado about nothing. In brief that sums up the Prime Minister’s address. Despite all of the euphoria and the large construct up, in his 17 minute lengthy speech Shri Narendra Modi made, what at finest is an administrative choice.

But what was surprising was the Prime Minister saying that the corona scenario is underneath management kindly think about the next figures:


· Total variety of Covid circumstances in India of 5.67 lakh
· India fourth highest variety of circumstances on this planet
· In June India has witnessed the best world progress in Covid circumstances
· Almost 20,000 new circumstances are developing each day
· Our take a look at constructive fee is at 11.4%

We are nonetheless testing the least in high 5 nations reporting Corona

So that are the figures that Prime Minister has based mostly his argument on about issues being underneath management is puzzling.

India testing 1.2 lakh COVID-19 samples daily, far from peak in cases: ICMR

Coming to the assertion at this time the Prime Minister Garib Kalyan Ann Yojna can be prolonged up till November. It is vital to keep in mind that this extension of scheme was steered a number of instances by Congress President Smt Sonia Gandhi in her letter to the Prime Minister. But there are two different huge inferences to be drawn from this announcement – The PM expects corona affect to final until November and his varied references to Chatth Puja and Bihar make it crystal clear he has solely state elections on his thoughts. Does he realise individuals want milk, greens, medication for which they want cash and which is why direct money switch is the one means to address their distress and rescue the financial system.

Since Corona, Modi Govt has taken:

1. $1 billion mortgage from World Bank
2. $1.5 billion mortgage from ADB
3. $Four billion mortgage in pipeline from IMF
4. ₹20,000 crore or extra for PM Cares Fund
5. Doubled taxes on gasoline
6. Increased market borrowing by greater than ₹Four lakh crore due to Corona

Where is that this cash getting used?

Why are states not being supplied monetary reduction?

Why are poor not getting money transfers?

The authorities has to get out of headline administration and as an alternative address the core points that plague our nation. Decisive steps and never empty phrases are required to cope with each corona and China
