The much-awaited second tranche of the Rs. 20-lakh crore financial package regarding the migrant workers, farmers and the poor has turned out to be a cruel hoax. The Finance Minister’s speech made false claims of what the Central Government had done to help people.
My previous communications to you listing out various measures that the central government must undertake to alleviate the sufferings of a vast section of our people during the lockdown have gone unanswered. In fact they have not even been acknowledged, which is unusual.
Modisarkar’s single biggest failure – betrayal is a better word for it – is on the jobs front. Two years ago Modi was voted to power because he promised again and again in his campaign speeches that the days of joblessness are going to be over soon, “achche din” (good times) are coming.
