    MP thanked Modi? unfair! He should have thanked the citizens of India who for whatever reason best known to them did not recreate the panic by hoarding the oxygen and black marketers who decided to stay away from the scheme they practiced and perfected last time! Probably getting caught on TV discouraged them! What is the point playing the game everybody are aware of . Must be out for a new game!! People should watch out. No government can supply anything if crooks decide to steal and news media is hell bent protecting them! We are at the mercy of crooks and criminals who are also Indian citizens

    True ! Prefect example Bangalore BJP MLA Ravi Subramanya caught in vaccine commission scam , uncle of youngest MP Tejasvi Surya.

    Hotel stay with vaccine combo offers . Its amazing.

    So all blame only on citizens, we have elected jokers to roam around world and do elections not to control irregularities or to manage crisis. It is called policy paralyses.

    BJP MLA’s uncle caught in a scam while BJP is in power? and the MLA comes open in the public to catch this scam? Does that mean that BJP does not protect their own people? I don’t believe it! some or all part of this news must be fake! This is getting to complex! First there was News, Later there was fake news, later their were fact checkers! Now even fact checkers are fake! Anybody can fly a kite and the supporting gang uses it as a fact and before you know it, it becomes more precious than the truth! No wonder whatsapp sues the government! Thy need to protect the people who start the fake news!

    @Naveen – Now China is accusing India that their citizens are suffering from Indian virus Pandemic! Thanks to our leaders who provided the news that China can roll with! Now, Global times, Pakistani dailies, Washington post, NY times, NDTV, India today all started calling this Indian strain that now WHO too stated calling it Indian strain!
    When Tejasvi Surya caught the cash for bed scam on TV, we all thought this was a great catch! But the people who were caught had a greater reach. Their supporters tried to convert it to a Anti-Muslim issue! That did not fly as Muslim leaders did not want to be identified with this heinous crime! So, the last option was as they say in Hindi ‘ULTA CHOR KOTHWAL KO DANTA!” Never mind, this news also gets the traction like the Indian virus news and graduates to become the ‘Truth”!
    We all now realize it was it was Nehru’s lack of foresight! Just like what he did to PM relief fund which says Congress party chief has the control. he should have amended the constitution to say Congress leader and party will only rule the nation irrespective of who wins the election! With this one change all the evils from Emergency to Modi’s rule , all would be eliminated !
