    PM Modi with nicely trimmed beard and equally well -groomer hair on his head says:”Prime Minister Narendra Modi says that India was much better placed than many other nations on the Covid-19 situation”. The hairdresser must have been tested negative for the virus, a perk only people in power like him can have!
    India had had a tiny fraction of foreign tourists that visit even Singapore, a tiny country, just one city. Other countries in Europe and N.America received many millions of tourists. Yet, the Virus will not go away! Still, the virus cases are creeping up and up.
    His words sound silly and irrelevant for those who are infected in Karnataka and elsewhere, and who had to suffer. For a policeman who is infected with this Virus, in Mysuru, and suffering dreadful chills and fever, comparatively number of cops infected in New York city does not give him any comfort , and release from the suffering.

  2. Hey Covid-19 says:

    Despite what this PM says hiding wherever he is, the Covid-19 is coming back with a vengeance, as there is inexorable rise in the number of cases almost in every state of the country. This is happening in a country which almost no foreign tourist considers as his first choice, the infections were inflicted on the poor by the rich who laundered their ill-gotten wealth in foreign capitals. The Virus is not finished with India yet, and hence, he should have waited before he gave his opinion, which is off-the mark considering the numbers of cases increases every day.
    Meanwhile his disciple Yeddi, the CM brushing aside all the social distancing and masks precautions, flouting the law, surrounded by a bunch of idiots like him was more interested in laying the foundation of the father of a place, which has developed without any kind of restrictions, into a pulling and uninhabitable place for those who are poor .
