Unceasing deaths. Economic and social distress. Psychological trauma. Never in living memory were Indian citizens more hapless. Never was there an absolute absence of hope. Never was India’s leadership more cruel and callous towards citizens.

Several commentators have blamed the ‘system’ for the massacre caused by the coronavirus pandemic, without underlining the failure of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, without naming the man behind the mayhem. They refuse to acknowledge that governance and administration do not operate in vacuum, these are led by specific personalities. The Modi government took little steps to build India’s health infrastructure, declared a false victory over the virus, celebrated Kumbh and went ahead with election rallies when the disease was spreading fast.

When the outbreak was first reported in India last year, the Union leadership was at test. A crisis is the biggest test of leadership. It makes and moulds leaders, prompts them to cede their hardened stances and reinvent themselves to meet new challenges. As we look back at the last 12 months, it’s obvious that the leadership deficit always existed at the top. Carefully concealed by PR exercises and submissive media, it has now become more visible than ever.

Any commentary that ignores the prime minister’s arrogance in responding to the health emergency over the last year is an apology for his government. The whimsical lockdown, the antics of candle lighting and banging utensils, apathy to the plight of labourers, failure to install oxygen plants and ramp up vaccine production and procurement to deal with the imminent second wave, concealing cases and death counts, bullying media to not report facts are among the long list of reasons that have converted the nation into a wailing crematorium; reasons why the final accountability rests with the Union government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Deflecting attention from the PM 

Deflecting attention from PM Modi and finding escape routes elsewhere has been the usual approach of many opinion leaders since 2014. It insulated the man and emboldened the government to continue with its dangerous mix of antipathy and arrogance. Last month, an elite private university was embroiled in a scandal over the resignation of an eminent faculty. Several commentators criticised Ashoka University for succumbing to the mighty, ignoring that the university administration was clearly bullied by the country’s rulers who couldn’t tolerate their criticism. Those who treated the Ashoka episode as an isolated incident overlooked falling standards in academic institutions during the Narendra Modi era. The government despises academics and scholars, be it at private or government institutions, reflected in assaults on writers and academics.

Many of those who were gloating with guilty pleasure in 2014 and 2019, who had rationalised, even justified, his earlier victories, couldn’t read the omens that have fallen upon us now. As we fix the responsibility of the Modi government, it’s imperative to assess the contribution of such commentators to his ascent.

Let’s strongly disagree with the UPA and the Congress dynasty, but also appreciate that the dynasty had given immense space to some outstanding civil society leaders who were instrumental in drafting and crafting several welfare schemes like the MGNREGA under which the Modi government later sought and found a shameless asylum.

And unlike the current rulers, the UPA acknowledged its failures. At the peak of the Naxal violence in 2010, then Home Minister P. Chidambaram, admitting to the government’s failure in tackling the insurgency, said, “The buck stops at my desk”. The current Union home minister is unlikely to have this humility. The Modi government doesn’t even acknowledge the dead piling up in various crematoriums across the country. The government doesn’t even bother to properly record its dead. We are mere voters, robots to be programmed to press the EVM button.

Healthcare, the pillar of democracy 

The last months have reinforced that the poor have the maximum stake in health infrastructure and efficient management of health services. The rich can buy air purifiers for their homes, but the poor in a deeply unequal society like India will die on the pavement. Let me illustrate this point by citing the great environmentalist Anil Agarwal’s World Conservation Lecture of 1985, an essay historian Ramachandra Guha termed his finest. Agarwal noted that “the main source of environmental destruction in the world is the demand for natural resources generated by the consumption of the rich (whether they are rich nations or rich individuals and groups within nations)”, and “it is the poor who are affected the most by environmental destruction”. Environmental degradation poses the biggest threat to marginal communities like adivasis, fishermen and forest-dwellers who are dependent on natural resources for their livelihood and survival.

Agarwal’s argument that “eradication of poverty in a country like India is simply not possible without the rational management of our environment and that, conversely, environmental destruction will only intensify poverty” also applies to medicare. Eradication of poverty in India is not possible without ensuring universal and quality healthcare to its people, and any attempt to undermine it will only intensify poverty and inequality.

The Covid pandemic has provided the clinching evidence. While India’s richest increased their wealth by 35 per cent during the lockdown, the pandemic pushed 75 million Indians into poverty in 2020. The number should be considerably higher this year. Amid this, the Indian government has ensured that its citizens will have to pay the world’s highest price for the vaccine in private hospitals, even when the richest European countries are providing it free to their citizens.

Consider this instance from the capitalist world to illustrate how the rich purchase basic services even when they are ineligible. In March 2019, the US prosecution unearthed a scam that saw wealthy people spending from $200,000 to $6.5 million to fraudulently ensure the admission of their children in elite universities, including Stanford and Yale. “The parents are the prime movers of this fraud,” a US attorney said, “The real victims in this case are the hardworking students” who were displaced by “far less qualified students and their families who simply bought their way in.”

The rich have various ways to fund their health and education needs. Only on rare occasions of scarcity like the one India is in now, are they unable to make their purchases. Whereas, the poor need basic services round the clock, through the year. It’s not a grant, but a constitutional guarantee. Article 21 of the Constitution provides enough space to bring free vaccination under the ambit of fundamental rights.

Any commentary on Modi’s handling of the pandemic that doesn’t take note of India’s slide into poverty and the administration’s continued apathy for the poor is an apology for the government.

  1. See the article reads about deficiencies of leadership, now what is Good or Bad leadership for the current scenario its the decision taking capacity and output of that decision.
    Covid 1st wave scenario:
    1. India underwent lockdown when remaining countries were blaming each other for covid situation Indian leadership supplied hydrocloroquine (sorry if if spelling is wrong) to all Indians and exported even to other nation.
    2. From 35000 Ventilator to 150000 ventilators.
    3. From nil mask Production to Mask surplus country.
    4. RTPCR trial to Mass testing to bring down the curve.
    5. Defending borders in 2 front even in cold winters.

    Covid 2nd wave senario:
    1. Spiked high went out of control asked support or taken support from countries to come out of problem.
    2. Oxygen supply a dedicated Green channel in railways , Air lifting of oxygen containers .
    3. Discussed with other countries for Raw material of Covid vaccine .
    4. Giving state govt to take decision for their respective states and supporting with medical needs

    So what is leadership skill
    1. Act on the situation and plan accordingly .
    2. To have over all picture of the situation and taking decision on situation and priority basis ( need of the hour).
    3. Take support of experienced person when problem going out of control.
    4. Deligating the decision making skill to subordinates and supporing when needed.
    5.See that system should function in place when they are diviating .
    I feel these are some leadership skill as per Management Gurus. I am unbiased irrespective of parties every one following .
    As citizen of any nation we should back our leader at the time of crisis because a nation is similar to a human body if any organ in body not functioning we dont blame instead we take medication to cure or change our diet as per our health.Under go surgery if organs malfunctioning
    Similarly , we are under operation and it is under progress so it is not a time to come to decision & wait till everything set right.

  2. This portal has won on the below

    1. Could show its literature, how well can one write.
    2. Disowned the Author of this article by saying independant, simultaneously show its resent against the govt. as front the start.
    3. Most importantly, we reading this article…this articleust have fetched lakhs of rupees, the ads on this article you see…..

    In this time of situation….why not everyone of us leave this kind of media alone may it be right or the left, but work with the local authorities, help with what ever you can.

  3. Author of this article must be paid highly to write negative about current ruling party. What a baseless and nonsensical claims made in this article. Negative stars for this kind of journalism. If pandemic was controllable, it would have not spread worldwide, besides India not only have high population but very densely poppulated, so situation is different here in India, you can’t compare apples to oranges.

  4. Only propaganda….
    If not please name one leader of your choice who can run the nation in this situation

  5. I think modi controlled the pandemic situation for first 6 months. As a result the corona virus was almost gone inactive till october month. After that modi thought that it was more important to focus on Bihar election than to focus on health issue. That is why for the whole winter season there was no critical situation of corona virus. But when the state election of wb,kerala,tamil nadu etc declared Modi completely lost his fake desh bhakti to win the states and become powerful in rajyasabha strength which he required to pass the bill in parliament. He did hundreds of rallies in those states where the recent assembly elections held. And as a result daily 4 lacs new cases emerged out. So somehow , modi is responsible for this uncontrolled situation. And the vaccine is not properly working. India needs a better leader than a superstitious RSS modelled hypocrite.

  6. Cowards can only use this crucial time for political blame game.this is surely one of those.
    i still feel safe in this government rather getting night mares in congress Era………
    Y don’t they prove in their ruling states like maharashtra……

  7. First of all this is totally biased article because everything have two aspects- positive and negative, and this one is highlighting negative ones only.

    It’s a natural pandemic, originated from China, and even WHO couldn’t (or didn’t want to) identify its infectious nature and some solutions initially, so you can imagine the level of danger this pandemic was going to bring.

    I’ll state failures of govt. initially -: they shouldn’t have allowed public meetings (like one in kumbh) , they shouldn’t have started election campaigns and rallies (but but listen even every leader was in rallies until the situation worsened upto 300k cases per day so why blame modi only?). And most important of all , knowing that there are chances of second wave to hit India, our management should have been ready.

    Now let me tell you some points of why not to blame Modi ji -: it’s a natural pandemic. People were irresponsible and when second wave started hitting, many of Modi-opposing mindset person thought it is a govt planning to impose lockdown ( I heard these guys in my nearby and I was dead laughing 😂).
    Virus underwent many mutations and that caused some ineffectiveness of vaccine of different variants (what could have Modi ji done in this case? Might have asked virus not to undergo mutation?)
    And at last, please note down the statements of akhilesh yadav and many more similar literate leaders (who had studied from foreign) when they were saying that they won’t get vaccinated because it’s BJP’s vaccine (LMAO) , how can anyone be so much brilliant to politicise vaccine.

    Now talking of falling GDP, yes govt and economists should do better planning and better execution, but then again pandemic caused the lockdown, markets shut down, jobs lost, hunger and poverty all around and yes I agree that there is a lot of improvement needed in economic sector, but if guys like you come with some planning and help instead of criticism, that would help in some better way.

    It’s high time we keep blaming govt instead of taking some good steps to help in whatever way we can. It’s tough time and we need to stand together.
    #indiafightscorona

  8. The Print is only downgrading itself by publishing such biased and idiotic articles. The gap betn the rich and poor has increased worldwide and india is no exception… Then why blame india. When modi declared lockdown last year, critics said he killed the economy. Now they are saying he is killing people. What can any govt do with the huge population if the people dont follow a simple rule of wearing masks and take prevention measures. Even today in most of the villages, people dont believe in a virus called corona. Any ways, god bless the writer as he seems to be going under mental depression.

  9. I think Modi is doing his job in a fantastic way. He is one of the few leaders in the world with such an amazing administrative skills. Even with such a large population and diverse internal problems the fatality rate is as low as 1% due to COVID in India , that is one of the lowest In the world. I wish him good luck and long life

  10. I think Mr Author you are supported my Congress party. When our PM declare lockdown last year, your type author criticize Modi step. Why you are claiming Kumb why not Eid last year, whether Modi only did electronic really, whether Modi only one leader in India. Last time all state CM claim that they will Handel better they state then why now they blaming central government. You and your kind of people only writing blog. Why you not go between Kishan leaders and agree to quit protest on the reason of Corona. No because that protest is for your favour.

    • For all of you defending your lord and saviour, saying he is qualified and has done no wrong, i ask you to look at it from a neutral unbiased perspective. Also, are you even reading the news? I believe countless countries are critiscising India’s leadership, and not one is speaking in their support. I believe presidents, prime ministers and chief of staffs of 100s of nations are qualified enough to comment on this.

    • Modi always used crisis for his advantage. We need a dedicated leader to handle this national issue. Chandrababu Naidu always proven successful in such management. Government should appoint such leaders with full powers

    • None of the previous governments had faced such a situation . I’m not supporting any government here. Our country is widely populated and has less sensibility when it comes to our personal and community care. With this overly populated country less hospitable facility it was evident that this situation will arrive some day or the other. The present govt has take. Some really appreciative steps by converting train coaches into hospitals.
      From past 70 years there was no proper infrastructure for the health department, nothing was developed and blaming this government is not done.

  11. It is easy to comment badly about the Government but very difficult to give right solution. A long message by an Author (name not given) may be an opposition leader is baseless, unethical and unwarranted. Modi Government is putting strenuous efforts to control this Pandemic situation.
    Simply criticism is unacceptable.

  12. I certainly hope and pray that no body suffers but all you bhakts your views may change once your near ones and dear ones suffers and passes.

    • Your hatred for Modi is blinding you to simple facts. When He and BJP handled it well last year, Modi credited all state govts not himself. Yet no one brought that up. Now, some state govts after being told to prepare in Jan of 2021, are not ready, then you want to blame the PM and central govt. You also dont seem to question how only India is suddenly suffering these mutated strains but poorer countries near us with exact same demographics and issues are not. Do you smell something fishy yet?

  13. Thanks Ashutosh for naming the man behind this mayhem, P M Modi n thanks to The Print. Great article. Would love to look up your book too.

  14. Accusing the Modi Government for this outbreak is ridiculous.. Has anybody ever thought why has it spread soo much, like a wild fire. I don’t think so. When the central government implemented lockdown last year in 2020, why did all of us complain of economic crisis.. We could have stayed safe inside. In the current scenario this virus is travelling on the polens.. Stop Blaming the government, and be after those black market vendors who are selling Oxygen Cylinders for INR 30000/- and INJECTION REMDESIVIR for as high as INR 100000/-… IF at all you people really want to change the scenario and help people live happily ever after, start working on helping and providing medical aid and help to the needy patients, and help our country come out of it, and move towards developing a happy nation, rather than blaming anybody.

    • Yeah, let’s just blame Nehru…Modi is above making mistakes. And those who blame Modi are idiots…

    • So why then need the leaders and government. It is Shame how some just want to be Bhakts ….no one is talking about Congress been great ever but didn’t we all trusted BJP would do some great for its people.

  15. An appeal to all citizens. Never trust these foreign funded publications. In this hour of crisis we should be strongly behind PM Modi. I am not able to understand why such media is always chanting anti hindu sentiments. This leftist media is doing everything to destabilize this nation. Last year when government was strict in imposing lockdown, they were crying stating how will the common man earn a living. This year when government has still not enforced lockdown, they are still crying. The author mentions about kumbh, he did not mention tabliqui jamat. These agenda driven media has only one agenda- Do anything to derail modi

    • ‘The author mentions about kumbh, he did not mention tabliqui jamat’

      Tabligh Jammat started before the lockdown was announced, they got trapped by the timing. It was 3000 people, and the govt. arrested 240 and closed it.

      Kumbh was 3 lakhs, every day, for days. The govt. laid 25 trains. The sadhu leader said he was not going to stop No arrests. Why ?
      The criticism has nothing to do with anti Hindu sentiments. Modi is guilty and you know it, and those who voted for him and support him are also guilty. The world is saying it.

    • Blaming praising govt in the review will not give solutions to the current situation. The moral is we don’t understand our duties and right, and administration failed to provide us better health care facility. And the last line is for those motherfucker who are trying to make profit in this pandemic situation by increasing the price of the medical assistance and commodity.

  16. The author of nonsense article didn’t seems to be born for an Indian blood. He almost forgot that “Whimsical lockdown” is the only reason that he and his probable aged parents are still alive to atleast get a jab of Vaccine which is produced in India and got it for free. Being a journalist have minimum responsibility to tell the mindless people of India(including him) not to spread false propaganda. Shame on people like you persistent in proving that the media is not being a watchdog but has become dogs chewing the bones thrown at them. Go to hell….

  17. I totally agree with your displaying the facts on your post…. Many of Indian fellow are still blinded by the false propaganda and duel nature of current modi govt which promote hatred in communities, hiding the actual data, threatening the media outlets with dire warnings, Pressurising the independent body’s to run for elections to gain power over certain states.. In return nobody should ask them questions for their failures to curb covid deaths, poor health care system… Harr cheez k leye to Nehru aur indira Gandhi to responsible nhi h na.. They are the ones in power for past 7 yrs plus see what all rubbish they have done already.. Wake up indiaa

  18. There are lots of people who are in favor of Mr Modiji who is actually our so called PM but they don’t want to belive that India and citizens of India are facing huge issues in current Pandemic which our so called Bhagat are not understanding, Modiji has done lots of good work but we should also understand that he is a failed PM when it comes to Healthcare industry, he has only concentrated on Ruling as well as On Promotion of Rallies , where Restrictions were supposed to be imposed there he gave full freedom and Common man was left to suffer… Also though he has ordered 14 AIIMS to be structured there he failed to initiative the requirements of those hospital, today people don’t have Medicine, oxygen no Beds or any other facility to survive… Today a common man is a common man’s friend but Our so called loveable minister is busy in Promotion of his Rally

  19. Third rate or even worst rated article. It appears that The writer / author is paid by communist and opposition lobby in India to conspire against the country and more particularly Shri Narendra Modi. This is purely treacherous Act. Not acceptable. This article is to create hatred amongst people of India.

  20. You the Author are look like an agent of global interest against India’s upbringing. You know well what is going on. But you simply ignoring the same for you and your masters’ interest. You are trying to mislead the people by distributing false narratives. But india and people of india are so immune that no wrong thing has exists for a long time and the wrong people like you will also not exist in this country.

  21. Fantastic article. This will make us strong to support only only and only MODI !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…………

  22. Do u wear mask,do u practice social distancing , uhh talking about govt. Wat do u do for nation? Just passing on comments dats it

  23. First thing which should be done for betterment, will be closing down these Bastard media channels and websites, who just take bribe and print any useless thing.

    Well Mr. Writer, please don’t write anything you like.
    Can you please tell how many thousand crores have to donated for betterment of people. You are just bullshit and nothing else.
    People weren’t following all protocols/rules which govt has told to do (like not going out from home, wearing mask everytime, proper sanitization everytime). But now if these people (including you Mr. Bastard), have corona you are blaming govt. It’s your duty to keep yourself safe not of any govt.

    Can you alone write 1 lac articles in an hour?
    If not, should I start blaming you that you are i start blaming you that you are incompetent and ridiculous and you should hang yourself?

    This is what is happening with the country, covid has risen because of carelessness of people. And this immediate rise of cases is causing these problems.

    You need to resign to make India a better place.

  24. Ek taraaf aalloo dallo dusri traff see ye article likhne wale, Journalist nikalenge waah mazaa aa gya ,
    NEEM KA PATA KADWA HI ARTICLE LIKHNE WALA ………HI

  25. Spilling Nonsense is very easy my dear friend. Last year when situation got controlled due to lockdown, your baby started crying. This time Hon’ble Court and state Governments are imposing lockdown to control the situation. Every MP has fund and required to monitor development work in their respective areas. Blame game looks like shielding own deficiency and diverting public attention.
    You must respect the sentiments of a lage section of society who have voted Mr Modi to power and wait for the next election.

  26. Excellent article. All those critical of this article and support the PM are either blind or callous to all his incompetence and lack of empathy. They have killed their conscience. Their comments does not matter only the opinions of people undergoing the effects of death and economic hardships in their lives matter. I find the PM not much different from Donald Trump! One needs to simply observe how many similarities they both share to come to this conclusion.

  27. Did you ever make a mention of Maharashtra which has led the tally all through? Or even Rajasthan?
    Why this sudden love for Covid? Your designs won’t succeed!

  28. This is another paid and sponsored Modi bashing article. Trust me if Arvind Kasriwal, Rahul Gandi or Akilesh Yadav would have been the PM during pendamic. We would have atleast 50% of the population infected and over few millions dead by now

  29. We agree that the current govt failed to plan the current pandemic Situation and the result is seen, 4 lakh/day new casses but the writer also forgets to mention the carelessness of the people and instead, praising the previous Govt, who have ruled Indian citizens for 65 Years who never thought of medical requirement to the country in future but were busy in making scams. Such writers clearly show that they are feet lickers and unfortunately have to read this articledue to 16k likes🤦

  30. Meaningless. This century is fascing an untold disaster strucking every where. No body anticipated this. The failure of 65 years visionless rulling and taking Europe development previous governments failed a string vision mission. Take population controll, languages issue, border issues or any issue our political lead democracy went busy in money making. So we donot have a magic stick to cure the devil. No leader so for borned here to make India a fully developed country. So when a long term unknown virus attacking economy why we fix one who is struggling day and night to help all. As citizen most of us forgetting to obey health guidelines. We see huge cue in front of liquor shops, but same people failing to save ration for their families. So let us not go behind one to bang him. Even God has reservations when disaster strucking nature. Man made mistakes going uncontrollable.
    I has greatest respect to PM. Elections ,victories are part of our democracy. Difficult to stop it. Let us unite communicate, help governance to defeat. Any failure is our failure. TV channels are going on TRP and politically biased. We must become our own security god’s to protect our body and brain

  31. Not complete agreed with this article, need to blame on oneself too, that how sincerely we are following the guidelines which government had formed .

  32. Do people of India belive news published on The Print? I don’t think so. I am a proud Indian and I would never beleive or follow this Single party dominated print media. You say Modi is not a good PM. Let me tell you if your Rahul baba would have been the PM now. Half of the india would already have been dead and you would see news of oxygen scam, covid test kit scam and ppe scam. Support the knowledgable PM and support growing india. Don’t go behind money thrown by Congress and loss your credaibility

  33. The author is blaming PM like he is CM also of every state. What all the CMs are doing? Covid management is collective responsibility of all CM,Administration,Hospitals,Police,public etc. Because public should also be blamed for not following Covid SOPs even today.Banquet halls owners,corrupt civil Administration,black marketeers who are worsening situation by creating artificial shortage are main culprit.For all this state govt. should work with iron hand. PM Midi can’t manage every Gali,mohalla,individual,home.

  34. Very well articulated, well researched post. The aim of this article is to create anarchy, chaos, mayhem and you have countered it very well. What else one can expect from Print…. pleasing their masters. Little realizing it’s boom ranging on them.

  35. It’s very easy to write articles & get PAID. Never easy to lead a nation of this size & population with so many different complexities, with dagger weilding PAID media on all sides & an incompetent opposition on the back.

    Well done, Modi sahib !! We are with you always.

  36. Dear Ashutosh ji,

    You explanation is very concise and thoughtful but I don’t understand why majority of Indian are not understanding. Are they deaf or blind who can’t see the reality. What should we do to awake them?

    Before few days, I were discussing to couple of my friends and few of them, they said, why are you not finding alternate leadership to him rather pinpointing his leadership. I personally believe that this government is pathetic and insensitive. Democratic Leadership is failed in India. Racism is on high side like Hindu-Muslim. I hate this type India or Indian. Why are we forgetting our values? Current politics is wrongly impacting on your minds. How to change it. Please share some literature to eradicate wrong influence from Indians’ mind.

  37. This author is an ugly product of sick mentality. He is a traitor. And must be dealt with as such. And… The Print, his ‘Mai-Baap’… are dirtier than him.

  38. Modi bhakts v/s Modi critics. Will the debate ever end? Not going to take either anywhere. Join hands and fight the crisis instead

    • Blindness has been our greatest gift, out leaders are different from other countries leaders, leaders enjoy fanfare, crawling, feet touching, ready to die for them- these bhakta of any party will not touch their parents feet or stand for goodness but will fume if their leaders are questioned. It is failure of System and public who were negligent, butbif people were negligent then authorities should ensure stringent controls, what Dr Fauci has said makes too much sense, time to take help from FORCES, what have our billionaires done, did they open up emergency units, did they tell unemployed ppl don’t worry we will support your expenses, when Forces come in then black marketing will stop. I agree it is not one person to to blame but collective responsibility.

  39. The Print, Scroll, Wire and all other media’s are against one man Modi the PM. Don’t you ever give or tell truth to the people. If UPA was in power, what would be our situation, entire nation would become cemetery. Rahul would have been in vacation Thailand for body massaging. Drug addict Rahul.

  40. Who are you ? ……….. What is your authority?
    If you have any guts then ask same question to all CMs. Hou much you get from Congress?
    Ask same question to Gaddar Thakre, Kejriwal, Captian, Gehlot. And also ask questions to your owner. Don’t interfere in our country. It’s none of your business. Always see your reflection in anywhere before speaking any word.

  41. Almost all the comments are by the blind followers of Modiji, typical of them sans truth and logic. Blaming public and state but not their supremo, who happens to be the PM, forgetting even states come under the center. All policies, guidelines, aids such as medical provisions are governed by the Centre.

    The Public was mislead by the PM, the Home minister and other ministers who posed in media, attending public gatherings without masks, giving all wrong info about Covid-19 such as covid is over, we Indians can’t be affected by covid, the election rallies, the permission for khumb mela. Now who’s responsible for the current situation, the public, the state or the centre?

    • Well written.

      The definition of a bhakth is one who has been sedated till he is brain dead.

  42. In many issues I find print is always on the negative side…. I think serious positive leadership crisis in print. Better guys become ambassador of negativity..

    I will stop reading your articles hence forth…

  43. In many issues I find print is always on the negative side…. I think serious positive leadership crisis in print. Better guys become ambassador of negativity..

    I will stop reading your articles hence forth…

  44. Most of the expenditure for health is used by families who have dozens of children, and half dozens of wives. Modi has done incredible job in this deadly pandemic. Not a single leader in current status available in india would have done such tremendous job.
    Just take an example of Delhi CM, he has just shrugged off his responsibilities. take example of Congress leaders like Rahul gandhi, who have done nothing to help the country people in this pandemic.
    I think theprint is run by such antimodi people’s who want nothing but power and money.
    Same on you for doing such lower journalism, doing politics even in such a miserable condition where people are dying and journalist like you blame government just for few bucks. Rightly used word for you ,’ lootiyan media’

  45. We don’t need your baised article print. We have trust in our pm. Everyone in the country is aware of your propoganda.

  46. (1) Very well articulated the ISSUE that Matters- VIRUS not VICTORY at the HUSTINGS.
    (2)Equally Conspicuous is the Theme the writer has missed highlighting the ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM. EIR. Whic is that this VIRUS focus away from Victory in the Hustings applies to Oppostion and Media as well.
    (3).That we the commoner and voter find disturbing if not motivated and selective and perhaps the focus of writer is defeat Modi and not so much the VIRUS

  47. It is easy to blame someone because you don’t have any business but to blame system. Best thing is to come out and strength the system against the consequences due to corona pandemic. Majority of the patients are due to fear of death,negatively, rumours spread by social media and TV news. Support the system. This will only happen with Mody as PM.

  48. A biased article. Writers seems to be living in Ireland,not in India ,he might be lacking knowledge of Indian culture ,it’s population density and above all he simply doesn’t know how corona virus transmit.

  49. Stop blaming government for everything. If people love their life they have to be quit responsible themselves as well. I support Modiji and I will support Modiji. I have full faith in his governance. Stop your political agenda. If you can see so much of problem I hope you have solutions as well. So come up with positive solution if you can. In this situation we are not interested in BJP and Congress politics. Keep your political agenda aside for some other day.

  50. People are praising the person who sold everything , destroying the nation , trying to divide the Nation by communal violence .there is no limit of ANDHABHAKTI

  51. It is not 2nd wave. It is spread by COMMUNIST CHINA to weaken the India because it survive their 1st corona attack. I think some Communist are secretly spreading the corona sent by China in cities. Even some communist writers are hand in globe with China to create pandemic in India.

  52. Modi buiot highest no. Of AIIMS also made people aware of banking, insurance, schemes… what not.
    Still this media tells us he is Temple Man, Victory Focused…..
    Your Kejriwal didn’t even built one hospital or soend money even for the same. SHAMELESS.

  53. Mr Sekhar Gupta, can you delay your agenda for some time, atleast in these tough time. Shame.

  54. Modi must have been aware of second wave in other countries. It’s strange that despite being PM, there was no strategy from his end and poor were left to die while he went to campaign for his political party. The irony is that his supporters are no longer able to rationally think and blame him for failure of WAR against Corona while it’s easy to blame Nehru for the China war

  55. The Print is librando and you have never written anything good about modi or bjp as your aim is to destroy n divide people b misguiding them …..Shame on your team !!!!! You are true anti nationals who are like dimak in india…

  56. The Print is librando and you have never written anything good about modi or bjp as your aim is to destroy n divide people b misguiding them …..Shame on your team !!!!! You are true anti nationals who are like dimak in india…

  57. How much money did you get to print this . You are definitely missing using your freedom of speech think are use the pen with responsibility.

  58. In the current situation of India, we have a worst, Poorly educated PM( caste/ election based PM) and infact we have a undeserved PM candidate from the opposition party (kinship based). We can’t expect basic necessary things frm govt…We need a PM like Dr.Manmohan singh or atleast like Atal bihari Vajapayee definitely not like Modi or Rahul Gandi..

  59. Hello mr editor,
    I dont know what is happening g to us but can you let me know who is responsible for that oxygen plants and oxygen supply to the hospitals. As per my opinion only and only state governments and hospital seniors ares responsible for this. And why is there health minister in our system. And whats happening to you too.. You have a power of pen, come forward and right something to overcome not to blame anyone else. I am not a blind follower of any party but think who is responsible to this. Or this edit of yours merely a day to get more comments and like dislike to make you too in the news.?

  60. All said and done, a country deserves the leaders it elects. If it is an uneducated frog in the well, so be it. No point in blaming him for things he is not even aware. You deserve your Hindutva.

  61. Anti Modi cells are active very much inside as well as outside India….. For every thing blaming Modi has become their habit…. These all are well planned propaganda against India….

  62. Without reading full article I just jumped to comment section
    We know The Print always have anti Indian, anti Hindu, biased article

  63. The writer should be positive.
    He should study and understand the pandemic is everywhere around world.
    Instead of critizing Modiji….. if he could have given solutions for this 2nd waves.
    Why Opposition parties had not suggested any ideas to tackle viruses ?
    Even Rahul also helpless.
    What Trump did ?
    Shut up and Be proactive and come to practical solutions.

  64. The writer is a idiot.
    He should study and understand the pandemic is everywhere around world.
    Instead of critizing Modiji….. if he could have given solutions for this 2nd waves.
    Why Opposition parties had not suggested any ideas to tackle viruses ?
    Even Rahul also helpless.
    What Trump did ?
    Shut up and Be proactive and come to practical solutions.

  65. Even after eye witnessing all these failures of NDA government, why the fool Bakths still defending? The truth and facts cannot denied. Modi had failed. He took India to a hopeless nation. I wasn’t/will never be a congress supporters but still NDA government under Modi and goon Amit Shah far worse than Congress. When the first wave of pandemic happened, how many poor Indian labourers suffered, how many poor labourers walked miles of roads to reach their home. Did Modi take care of them? No but why the hell he arranged special trains for lakhs of people for Kumbh Mela when second wave of pandemic is prevailing. Instead of focusing on healthcare, planning to tackles pandemic why the hell Modi go for an election rallies. Stop that stupid defense on Modi by Bakhts. Accept the failures and try to be better if not India will be rotted in hell because of Modi and the stupid Bakhts.

  66. Shameless Author. Stop printing such useless article. Blame on self first for not wearing mask then hold the government responsible. I thought the editor was a true journalist. The article clearly indicate the remuneration received for publishing this scrap.
    Be true to yourself and adhere to the governments guidelines. That way you are doing your part in this tyring times.

  67. This article clearly also makes one think what had been the development of our healthcare from.past 60-70years….so many govt’s changed and no body took this sector so seriously….and one has to agree that there was a party which got elected so many times which itself is directly responsible for this lack of development.Now all those people calling Andh Bhakths….plz first stop being Gulams and try not to make this Pandemic a political cry….this has affected the entire globe and the only way out is to just follow the basics of curbing this.Wear Masks,Sanitise Wash Hands and plz maintain social distance.Stay Safe Stay Healthy.

  68. In the next up coming M P elections citizens of our Democratic country have to teach them otherwise India will suffer more and more

  69. ##### Article presents only one side of a coin. I doubt about the hidden motives of the writer!!!

  70. Bull shit. You think you are smart. If you were in Modi shoe would you have done the job better. Sitting and speaking is easy. What has your contribution been except writing English. We are a developing nation . What has Congress done with regard to health care . Nothing at all. Where are the primary health centres? What are they doing. Except corruption nothing people like you have done. Don’t critise. Even if you think you cannot do harm to us. Get lost.

  71. I wished I was there next to you while you were penning down this crap… I would have taken that same pen and pushed it up your ass and kicked your stinking ass…
    Don’t you dare deframe or insult our Best Prime Minister.
    Journalist or writters like you are sick people with very sick mind…
    By the way just for information, WE LOVE OUR PRIME MINISTER AND HIS LOYAL WORK FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY…

  72. Leadership matters in the long run, because this group is responsible for devising strategies and implementing them. We must learn from China how it managed the COVID-19 crisis. But unfortunately leaders of our country are more focussed towards other affairs rather than core issues of country.

  73. The bhakths are in a rage ! It is a big loss of face.

    Leave them to it. How can those mired in wickedness accept they are wrong ?

    Those who want a secular democratic India with a measure of social equality, equal rights and opportunity, and education and healthcare, and not a country rub by violent dacoits, vigilantes and Hindus militias, we need to point out the take away from the Covid fiasco is that Hindutva has failed and is an unworkable ideology. India’s failure and misery stems from this ideology. Modi is just a product of it.

    Vinod Dua remarked long ago : they have tasted the blood of Muslims, tomorrow they will want the blood of Hindus. That is what has happened.

    Arundhati Roy has written ‘they want you to vote as a Hindu, but die as a disposable.’ That too is correct.

    It is time for the media to analyse not just the government, Modi and his ministers, but to have a debate on Hindutva ideology. We cannot expect Arnob to lead it, this debate on Hindutva and what it is, should be led by the liberal press like NDTV, Print, The Wire, The Scroll, and the equivalent in the Hindi media. Maybe the western media also need to be alerted to discuss what is Hindutva.

    Congress should send its top people Rahul, MMS, Kapil Sibal, Jairam Ramesh etc. to debates on NDTV, and show it is the alternative. NDTV and other channels should stop inviting low life from RSS and even BJP. Have a debate on Hindutva and the damage it has done to India and explain to people why it is unsuitable for a modern nation. Explain India’s Covid fiasco is due to Hindutva and its baggage.

  74. I am sorry, but you did not mention about the development on the medical sector over 70 yrs. I am surprised of the work done by the BJP. Nevertheless its hard to do every other undone work over 70 yrs.
    If the railways were well structured we would had got even greater players in industry.
    If the medical was well structured, we would had got a better way to deal with it today.
    If the web defence was well developed over the 70 yrs, we would have had a better way to deal with cyber attacks.
    If a single religion was not priortised for votes. More so, if that religion did not allow themselves to be used as vote banks, we would had seen a true development of the country.
    The probable argument would rather be, why were there not enough medical grade oxygen made, and research about it done, why weren’t the hospitals made equipped with it over the last 70 years.
    Its impossible to do just everything or even expect to get everything done in not even 10 years.
    Please be a human. If you ask the government to be a God. You are asking for the impossible brother. The Government is also made by humans.
    You all think that true journalism is to criticise the one in power, to just criticise by any means. The definition is taught is every other college, taught by the western interpretation of journalism.
    For me, true journalism is that which Is found in Mahabharata. How Vidura dictates the whole scene to Dhritarashtra.
    A journalist should forsake their own voice for others to comprehend in their way. Which I cannot see. Whichever way you might have gone. Be it criticising or acknowledging, till you cannot do the above, you are no journalist. But a biased man.
    UPA has only contempt in my memories unfortunately. So when you try to back the UPA, you are like A. Truschke who is trying to portray a rapist, mass murderer like Aurangzeb in good light. Trying to bereft him off his wrong doings, justifying his actions. Thank you for reading. Please don’t delete this post. I have seen my post continuously deleted in YouTube reviews.

  75. When the house is on fire it is only idiotic persons try to find out how the fire started where it started etc instead of helping to put out the fire. The writer of this article is one of those persons who wants to see Modi ousted . Has he got any one more capable than other than Modi to lead the coiuntry at this tragic time. When the pandemic broke out ecven the most advanced countries like US were not prepared because they did not anticipate. The ferodity of the scond wave in India has not been anticipated. If your writer was so clever he should have anticipated and warned everybody what to do, It is only half wits screem saying what should have been done instead of what should be done. The population of the Western countries including US affected by the Covid is 1390 million and that of Indis is 1380 million. The covid fatalities in the Western coiuntrie is over 2 million as compared to less than 2 million in India.We should be proud of what our adminstrators and health workers have done. At a time like this Print allowing someone like this writer acres of media space is simply irresponsiboe and idiotic. Thank God India is a democratic country, where even the fools seem to think that they have freedom to shout in a crowded theatre that it is on fire. In many other countries would have seen a writer like this locked up to cool his heels.

  76. You know what u showed why u guys get lynched. The people of this country are useless peice of shit. We are not that poor that we can not buy Mask, Sanitizer & keep ourselves clean.

    Modi or Shah did not spread COVID…it is us who fucking don’t give a damn about the pandemic and then we cry that govt is not doing anything.

    Go and learn some basics u moron…

  77. “Never was India’s leadership more cruel and callous towards citizens.” … now a days every tom dick and harry are penning propaganda articles and becoming journalists

  78. I initially was reading his article with interest as I also feel that Modi government has failed miserably in the pandemic. I stopped when he started talking about how UPA government was better in terms of MNREGA and Chidambaram being apologetic.
    Modi has so far failed in the last 6 years but UPA was a colossal failure for 70 years- period. I just pray that Modi performs otherwise this country is doomed in the hands of corrupt UPA and fragmented opposition.

  79. He is a great leader and you guys print the urban naxals of this country who are you to judge his leadership. We the people of this country have voted him and we have chosen him as our pm. India is better under his leadership or no one knows who was more capable of handling the country better then him.

  80. When will the bhakts understand, when someone of their own dies when they could easly be saved. Many of the deaths were preventable.

  81. I HAVE FAITH IN MY PRIME MINISTER.
    WELL EXTERNAL ELEMENTS CAN STAY AWAY OR DIE TRYING MALIGN MY PM.
    ITALIAN STANDARDS WOUNT WORK.

  82. Please stop this biasing dialogues, people in massive masses don’t follow protocols for pandemic situations end up in national crisis for health backup. What are the state level and governance doing to control the smooth operation of controlling the crisis – simply nothing. Black marketing of all medical supplies not stopped at state level – and this is applicable to all. Judging someone is easy when one self don’t realise his/her civic duty. Sorry but I don’t totally agree to this.

  83. India should go back to it’s five year, ten year planning methods of the days of yore, wherein jawaharlal Nehru, late indira Gandhi, lal bahaduri sastri delivered satisfactorily. But today India is saddled by mismanagement, maladministration, corruption, wastage and wanton destruction of funds and resources, added to rising level of incompetencies in almost all departments. Another important but a worthless system seen now a days by Narendra modi govt is the practice of voodooism, sorcery, black magic, mass hypnotism, and other sorts of occult arts like banging utensils, lightining candles to scare the bwana of covid 19,has taken nowhere. The times appear to be taking a dangerous turn and to that extent narender modi was found to be sleeping like a rip van Winkle with a long white beard.

  84. Oh shut up you liberandu media. It is a global crisis. Modiji is far better than his predecessors. Give me one name who can replace Modiji in this current political scenario. Last year he went for the lockdown you criticised him. Now he hands it over to the states still u blame him. Why don’t you criticise the state leaders. Shame on the mindset of the columnist always spewing venom against Modiji. Health is a state subject. Let the state governments handle it. The Prime minister is doing everything he can even went against the policy of not accepting assistance and aid from foreign countries. Stop your anti Modi rant and let him concentrate on providing relief to the people.

  85. How much did you get paid to write such polite article against one person? India needs freedom from paid journalism rather defaming only one person who atleast did something to change our lives, when past 70 years our politicians used to pay for journalists and get them in flight for their foreign trips and now from past 10 years you guys are not getting that butter. It’s clearly understandable, why you like journalists are so vocal against one person Mr. Ashutush! India is growing rapidly and people are getting into reality rather running around 1plate of biriyani and 500 bucks. Now people will take the bucks but will be doing the right thing what is good, so you do your job, let us do our job. We are afraid of getting bullish by one family and not having any interest to make our children life screwed by allowing same Tughlak and British to rule us by their benefits and making a single family to rule the entire country 🙂

  86. A third grade article and shame to the writer, who lives in a fool’s paradise away from reality. Will the writer tell, who scripted this article and how much money he has received by lending his name.

  87. You will get tired to vomit venom without any success in your intent.
    On 2nd May 2021, it will be your turn for mourning again.

  88. Great eye opening article written by a true Journalist who knows to ask the appropriate question to a rt man who are just enjoying all power inspite of doing anythig for this great nation, you are a true journlist to know jouranlism instead to become a flatterer. we heard the news about demice of Rohit sardan a bjp jouranalist , frankly telling you no sorrow came to me. If by having all the power like PM care fund which is a lot , cutting MPs n MLAs Funds of their MPLADS and all , Did nothing left country to cry. You Will not be spare Mr Modi, Cryings of lots of Human beings will not let you sleep in odd days remember.

  89. Every single statement made in this article is true, what’s these to oppose. Modi has failed the nation in fighting aganist the serving wave of covid. With experience comes better plan of action to face the same situation, but utterly failed to save the voting robots . No infrastructure built or established. Still bhakts support the Prime Minister . #ResignModi.

  90. You guys really think you are printing sensibly? Now you are asking for new elections? Rather then supporting failed parties, support the ruling parties to handle situation better, if you can. Else please sit at home and Netflix, it has some sensible things than this.

  91. I am shocked people still loving modi, they still believing illiterate . they still believing in wellness of india with this person, there is a good proverb that ” jaisi praja waisa Raja”natural calamity is allright but wht precautions and lessons we have taken to deal this virus since 1 year? , not a mistake of Modi govt? Bhakts will be bhakts.
    Resighn modi.

  92. Just one small query cam health comes without victory in democracy ? Give it a serious…even after 2019 one have talasha every year in diff states wasting resources and energy….one need to have ome election for whole india before thinking of anything else

  93. Just one small question to the writer, can one think of medical and health without victory on democracy ….without victory ome remains a journalist or writer on salary and mercy of the bosses ans not do anything om ground..so without victory nothing os possible…..give it a serious thought ..:)

  94. All the modi bhakts going crazy in the comment section🤣..Well thanks to print for sharing such a article, so much hiding by the government proves their nastiness..While modi goverment had did some good work which is applaudable but there are many things which went horribly crashing down the river n this mismanagement of things, corruption (for party funds n political rallies), n not allocating enough funds for healthcare is putting India in a dimlight of progress n greatness…Hope all goes well in future…Fed up of the government but cant do anything..🤐

  95. Paid media, author what are you saying, select Rahul Gandhi as Pm, why because he will invent a machine in which put pandemic from oneside and take vaccine the other side

  96. Complacent, power-crazy, Central Government is to blame quite a lot for the Covid situation on the country. Didnt they take full credit for succesfully handling the 1st wave? They must similarly take the blame for the 2nd wave and what it entails. Sadly they are still playing divisive politics.. Paying little heed to the desperate pleas of Delhi citizens, Delhi hospitals and the Delhi Govt for Oxygen, and instead stating Delhi has been allotted more than its share . Giving vaccines on priority to BJP ruled states. Phase 3 vaccination is commencing on May 1st in only Gujarat & U.P. ..2 states where the BJP is in power. Their focus was on the state elections in the crucial months of March & April, with a view to extend the party’s holdings eastward and down South

  97. I agree with writer of this article. Last year government had given statements they had a victory over this pandemic. It is fact that wealth of a rich is increased. They did not anticipated correctly to mitigate the second wave and instead top leader are went for political rally. I am not saying they cannot go, but first they has perform their responsibility the one which we given for them. Second wave is started since Feb end and leaders went political rally till yesterday. Many are struggling to find a job who lost in the first wave. Some are not back to city and while one who came they are going back to villages. I was wittnessed many migrant poor currently waiting outside of rail and bus stations.to get into the board.

  98. stop boosting any politicians all r the same becos In India we don’t have policy that Minister who stand for election should be well qualified to manage thier duties and prime minister job is to see that all.ministers perform thier duties well
    First thing chief ministers of the states should be blamed they don’t want thier state to grow and people wander one state to another state in search of jobs
    In other words if I say there is no proper system in India for any work everything is corruption from peon to the top level politicians
    Biggest mistake is again from all citizens who r paying bribes to the government officials to finish thier work
    Let all citizens of India follow one rule no bribes no corruption then u see India will be the best in the world with better resources Today what India does not have it is a God gifted country u can see the best of tourism where India can generate its revenue and tourists to provide the best safety and security

  99. Third class writer and this The print is more bogus.
    Instead of supporting the efforts and steps of govt this author is targeting our prime minister.shame and yes we do not deserve such hard working ,honest true nationalist modiji.the mess what our PM is trying to clean is created by incumbent useless party which ruled for. 70 years.stop publishing such articles.

  100. Doing election rallies with both PM and home minister involved when the danger signal was still there and everyone was criticizing kumb mela is a big fraud with nation.
    But so called intellectuals support the leadership only bcoz the leader is the only fanatic hindu leader….keep supporting him!

    • Modi is a great leader Omar. This crisis has nothing to do with his leadership. All other countries in the world are helping India because of Modi.

  101. Indians r not fools . Please hire some proper knowledgeable journalist. What ever your agenda is will not work.
    We r more than twice the population of Europe and if we compare whole Europe’s statistics with COVID for infection to death ratio we r doing sensible job with whatever facilities we have.
    You could have helped atleast one patient it would have been good deed instead of doing negative propoganda in this tough time. This time will go and what will remain is who stood for us.

    • RK: You bray

      “Indians are not fools”

      Well, they elected a man who gave them pogroms, demonetisation, economic downturns and now a humanitarian crisis of gargantuan proportions. And they continue to elect the same flawed, barely literate man again and again.

      Need I say more ?

  102. Dear Mr writer and ‘the print’. First do and then talk. This is not the time to spread hatred. If there is any better leader then please ask them to do something on the ground and claim the credit, no issues. Only blaming will only expose your narrow mind. We will emerge victorious against covid and India will prosper again. Please have some patience and self confidence.

  103. Accusing the government for everything happening is not a solution and believe it or not if you or your seniors would have been in the ruling side things would not be any different. This is a tough time and needs everyone on the same team to fight this. Stop playing politics at this time and show some compassion for the people passing away.

    • Actually given their past record and the present alternative they have to offer, it would have been ten times worse. That the Indian government’s glaring incompetence, short sightedness and apathy is there for the world to see – especially that of it’s political and bureaucratic wings. Moreover with the gargantuan Left dominated International media machinary (LIMM) and the Marxist Academic mafia in Social Sciences (MAMSS) vehemently opposed to the present dispensation, that too not as merely ‘somewhat unfairly tilted’ observers and commentators but instead as extremely prejudiced party in the feud waging a naked ‘no holds barred’ war on behalf of the discredited and rejected political cum ideological sides of their choice – leaves no place left for the incumbent rulers to hide or scope to find any gap to slip any kind of favourable counternarrative . Yet there are very goood reasons why inspite of enjoying significant demographic advantages in their favour as well as all kind of criminally unscruplous modifications in the Institutions made over decades with the aim to consolidate and secure all levers of power for perpetuity with them during their almost uninterrupted brazenly corrupt, incompetent and insidiously divisive rule for more than half a century, the political parties, their leaders and ideological representatives whom the LIMM & MAMSS has been batting for openly and relentlessy – were still unceremoniously kicked out of power and rejected once more with even more conviction 5 years later even though their replacement did not do anything spectacular or cover themselves in glory during those 5 years. It is the utterly sad situation of this country that even as this collosal tragedy unfolds and people curse the powers to be, justifiably so, yet they are still simply too wary of any change in leadership simply because (a) they don’t have such a short memory as the local chapters of LIMM & MAMSS wish they had and (b) they are neither moronic nor suicidal enough as the local chapters of LIMM & MAMSS wish they were in order to buy the unmitigated disaster which the local chapters of LIMM & MAMMS are peddling as “infinitely better” Alternative either. It is my observation that a significant number of people would rather threaten to withdraw any future support in hope that inescapable loud criticism and realistic fear of losing power may force the ruling political class to get its act together even if belatedly so than actually act on their threat when time comes, not because of any love or respect for those holding the reins of the country and many states right now but because of the lot better understanding of the nature and attributes of the “Alternative(s)” avaliable that they have gained from many decades of first hand experience.

    • Jab koi mar raha hoga tab koi educated dr k pass jaega ya uneducated ved k pass jaega itni baat samjh ja pura concept samjh jaega

    • Absolute crap.. modi is the only one who can heal our country wound happened since foreign invasion. Let’s support him to take our country to next level. This is a pandemic and it’s not easy to control a 135 crore population, that too in a democratic country. We are with you sir.

    • Yes Indeed this is a very tough time for us all. The leader should have set an example and shown the way.
      But he was busy in elections, organising rallies without any safety for anyone. The leader allowed Kumbh mela where lakhs of people had gathered.
      There are many things to pen if you have wisdom you would gather what I am trying to convey.

      Modi should or could have avoided this pandemic and disastrous situation where he has led us all

    • Agree .Very easy to blame .what can modiji do alòne.wat other state govts are doing.and mostly wat people r doing? R we not responsible to spread this virus

    • Thank you, you gave very good reply, this section of people waiting for the opportunity to malign Modiji, very cheaply using a pandemic situation against the person who is working 20 hours a day for people of this country.

    • Well said 💯 … Even the western countries which are known for the best health infrastructure in the world, they too have failed during this pandemic… They are having fatality rate higher than us still they never blame their government… But some bootlicker media like this will leave no stone unturned to vilify the government even if gov is working incessantly to tackle this problem… Inko Paisa milta to bhad me Jaye Janta aaur Desh !

    • What all said it true.Vaccination was out way long back but our great GOVT decides to gives other countries vaccination first than to its own citizens Wow its like a mother depriving her own children of her milk Great job Another great job zero vision when u can build detention centers of crores of rupees in advance why can you spend a few on oxygen generation plants in the past 14 months now when people are dying of it your vision suddenly clears up What a numbers game being played Wow hatts off what a great leadership we have Andh bhakts keep your eyes closed because u will not be able to see anything left when your stupid vision clears up

    • Mr. Bhattacharya, saying things like, if a different government was in power then the situation would be no different is STUPID! This government is in power and we are facing a crisis an unprecedented pandemic hit us twice and got worse the second time around? Tell me Mr. Bhattacharya when you fall down the stairs the first time do you get even more careless and fall the down the stairs epically the second time around? Or do you get even more careful?
      We need to be united and take care of each other, it’s true. But tell me if we could do all of this ourselves why do we need a government for? Maybe you could say all this without any responsibility because the aftermath of the policies of the government hasn’t hit you or maybe it has hit you just not hard enough to wake you up.

    • Ashutosh, u r wrong. Dont blame such a devoted person whose every follicle is for upliftment, safegaurd for every single indian.
      Mr P M Modi ji did everything in regards to Covid-19 slow down. He had been appealing from Day 1 to follow covid appropriate behavior, bad sadly most of Indians didnt took seriously and started greeting each other without mask, started hoax among fellow Indians that ‘corona worona kuch bhi nhi hai faltu ka afwah hai’ and didnt maintain social distancing with ignoring hand hygeine.
      This is absolutely blunder from our fellow Indians not Modiji.
      Shame on you if you are cursing such a pleasing PM all over world

    • Pm modi and bjp are the most foolish party.he did nothing in 1 year. Kumbh and bengal election hi first priority.the big hand to decrease economy…congress is far better tgan modi govt.modi govt cant utilize tgst congress give in 70 yrs

    • Leave it brother, news agencies like theprint or thewire etc have their only agenda to defame modi, BJP, and Hinduism. Even if tomorrow an asteroid hit India, they’ll blame modi for that too🤦‍♂️😂

  104. We believed and trust in our PM and Government Of India. This sentence is have all the answers for ur all critics.

  105. We cannot means cannot blame the govt it is modiji who is facing so so many internal and external challenges since he is in power and above all this pandemic is a natural one but still he stands firm and we all are wíth you sir prime minister and proud to hv u as our countrys face as i dont think any PM must hv faced so many various challenges .
    Instead of blaming the govt if the people wud hv followed the protocol and stopped themselves from celebrations and get togethers thís wudn hv happnd cases wudn hv gn hígh its us to be blamed. Pls instead of pointing fingers at others chk urselves.
    Jaihind

    • If PM and his party would have stopped doing rallies and didn’t allow khumbh mela. All this things would not have happened. Stop supporting them . They are ruling the country and if anything happens to the citizens of India. Citizens do have a right. We are not blaming them unnecessarily this is the genuine reason People are dying and government is not rectifying hence they are getting criticism from all around the world. Pm and his party is responsible for every thing. this issue has not happened with ur family otherwise u would not have said those words.

    • My Dear sister
      Nothing is natural, it’s the govt who allow to enter the pandemic in the country. Last year when all the world was facing pandemic we were not considering it at serious note, allowing people arround the world to enter into the country without any precautions rather we are just waiting. Once pandemic bursted Our Honorable PM blindly started following the west world without any measurements then lockdown.
      Do you even know that ?
      It’s not the pandemic rather lockdown which bothered the people more, more casualties and death than pandemic and what we got at last with lockdown The second wave.

      For your kind info, people of any country not willing to follow any rules and protocols it’s the govt administration to execute them in effective manner.

      You say people are celebrating parties and marriages and all, than what your Modi ji is doing only election rallies having very small gathering of people hardly 1000-10000 people

    • Ms Kavita: So why did this all-knowing Gujarati with a pogrom under his belt allow the Kumbh Mela? Hold election rallies ?

      Stop hero worship and hold your elected leaders to account.

    • He has created all the mess a failed leader can do. What was he doing since 2014? Has he done anything good for the country other than dividing on the basis of party religion cast?

    • You are right the people are to be checked first but is there no fault of the government? If there would have been no Kumbh mela or election rallies , if an ordeal would have been passed against it the result would have been no gathering and no mass spreading and subsequently no pile up of the deceased in the crematorium. Blaming the common is right but excluding the ruling government from the act that could have stopped such spreading of the novel virus and appreciating is completely wrong…it’s a democratic country if a govt is appreciated it should also be criticised…and moreover no one can say that some other leader could not have done better because none of us have seen some one else dealing with it…a country whose medical facilities are shattered but election compaigns and kumbh mela are rejoiced, a leader who declares victory even before the actual war started is actually implying that it’s not getting good any soon.

    • Modi has not cared to develop health infrastructure. Many people died due lack of oxygen supply. Kumbh mela wrongly allowed. Elections should not have taken place. All is due to selfish Government.

    • This is called andh bhakti. And not belong to our economy..pm modi is main reason for destroying our country and andh bhakti think he is generous…you all bhakts also main reason for creating this…u all are foolish day by day , poverty increases, mehangaai increases, less jobs, pm modi only want power most foolish hovt

    • Yes Our beloved PM was just doing rallies even in pandemic to protect people only. Don’t know why courts stopped our dear Modi ji to do rallies. Wo that bechare oxygen cylinders leke baat rahe thy rallies me.

  106. In India, health, education and Farmers safety is the very high priority. Nowadays all State leaders are ignored these important things and completely corrupted except few of them are good leadership qualities but spending crores together even for local panchayat elections. We can’t comment on Modi ji and entire world is suffering due to this Pandemic. Without private sector support by the central/state governments any country will not be developed. It’s open secret but majority of the good industries are acting as a monopoly without ethics and neglecting the employees.

  108. I agree with the article to very much extent. Poor became more poor and the rich became even more richer.
    Threatening and lodging cases on journalists, defaming the opposition, controversial Bill’s and schemes, rape accusers and criminals in the party, politicizing the army victories, anti pakistan rants in rallies to woo the voters.
    Nothing wrong in blaming the administration. Today is the result of previous days mismanagement and mishandling of govt and ignoring the states cause.

  109. Hi print and author, Fully understood your deep intentions to defame a national leader by showing some points as bigger mistakes. We saw the same situation even during first COVID wave elsewhere.

  110. Biased Article, it is a panedamic so naturally people are going to suffer up to some extant. Modi is the best leader in this situation

  111. This is epic – “Let’s strongly disagree with the UPA and the Congress dynasty…….”

    And in the rest of the article, the author is nothing but a Dynasty bhakt.

  112. Modi should resign if there is any humanity left in there, he really massecared the people of india he sell all the profitable properties of govt to private sector, he only focuses fir his political rallies and all that bullshit. #resignmodi

    • Very sadly, instead of commenting on the article, you chose to promote your half cooked politics. It will be nice if you educate yourself little more. Selling properties: Govt’s job is not to get into business but make conditions good for business. I do not expect you to understand all that. Why he should not focus on political rallies. Can you guarantee nobody else will? If you are an Indian, you should know that Elections are constitutional requirement. Political rallies are not Bullshit, if you know what democracy is. Had Modi stopped the elections, PRINT and you would be jumping up and down little more.

    • Please name some entities given to pvt sector. Also, please tell me if China’s leaders, US leaders, UK leaders, Italian leaders are also mass murderers for Covid deaths in their countries? Congress govt under Rahul Gandhi or a mixture of regional parties would have been worse if no better in the current situation.

    • Congress govt under Rahul Gandhi or a mixture of regional parties would have been worse in the current situation. Unlike Boris Johnson or Trump I never saw Modi mocking the virus or making unscientific claims. I agree towards a sense of overconfidence in last couple of months and focus on elections. But trust me India is a humongous country and super complex to manage.

    • Seems like even now, people are obssessed against Modi and doing this dirty politics. Have some compassion for humanity and contribute positively. We know, If it was any other PM, things would have been even worse, from what we have seen last 70 years. Most of these journilists and so called intellectuals seem to peddle lies and create hate among society as their sources of income have dried up last few years and hence they hate this Govt. People who were running parallel economy are not happy with this govt.
      Given the complex country we are, it is not easy to clean up the system easily and we are going through this transition now. Unfortunately challenges are overwhelming both dirty politics and natural issues like this pandemic.
      I am sure Indians will defeat this sinister design and face these difficult times unitedly and succeed.

    • Adil Rashid ,your comments come from religious and prejudiced mindset ,the union govt has sanctioned 162 oxygen plants, but all state govts including BJP are all used to work on a commission basis ,since there is no cut ,they have not shown any interest and urgency. , what were hospitals doing all these days ,it has become fashionable to blame Modi for everything .,this hate comes from some vested interest.the more you hate ,he will grow taller.

    • Last year entire govt celebrated as if they controlled pandemic once and for all. Premature celebration. Now spiking like any thing and other countries controlled the spread. Now whose mistake. Do soul searching. Own the responsibility and act swiftly.

  113. Penning anything is very easy. So it concludes what I read today’s article. Here it goes:

    Is the second corona wave *a planned biological war* against India?

    Do you believe that the second wave of the current widespread pandemic in India is due to the spread of the virus in general?

    Till a fortnight ago I used to believe that this is the second wave, but now a lot of doubt has gone home in my mind.

    Look at the state of the entire Indian subcontinent. Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan… There was no other wave in these countries or in any other country of Asia.

    Today there are similar conditions as they were in India two-and-a-half months ago. Then how did this bomb explode in India alone….? Are the citizens of all those countries very much disciplined than Indians?

    Do they wear masks around the clock to avoid epidemics? No!
    Do their geographical location differ from India?
    No!

    Then, the second wave could not even touch these countries and is breaking India, why?

    ICMR has said at the time of the first wave that crores of people got this *disease* in India and they did not even know and when crores of people suffered it, they became *disease resistant* . If so, then how *the second wave*… How did it become *dangerous*? And why did it happen *only in India*?

    Look at the *global conditions* after this *pandemic*. From *medicine, vaccine* to *economy management*. *India* amazed the whole *world*.

    And now, understand the *real concern* of *China*. *China* is talking of *help* to *India* today. Last year was also it was *infiltrating* in the *pandemic period*. After *kicking out* there, situation is so *improved* that it started to help us ????

    *Pakistan* as *long time foe* and a *lame* talking of help to India …?

    One very important reason is that *Modi* is not bowing down like *Trump*.

    The world’s *Pharma Lobby, Oil Lobby and Arms Lobby* created this *pandemic* and
    *BlackLivesMatter* and
    *George Floyd* beat *Trump* by causing a terrible uproar in the *media* of the issues. Because *Trump* stood against these *lobbies*.

    Today the same people are following *Modi*.

    Do you know why? because …

    The *business* of *pharma companies* is at least *4 to 6 trillion dollars (annually)*. Vaccine business of at least *1.25 trillion* was reduced to zero. The *PPE Kit* of *500 billion dollars* and *business* of *mask* was almost reduced.

    In the field of *medical* *India*, who was suffering *loss* due to *self-sufficiency*..How did the country that always was begging for alms has become a *vaccine* sharing country ??

    Undigestable isn’t it ? Germany knows this pain on how India beat them in the field of *Drugs*. Please think again.

    Going forward..
    … *75000 to 100000 charging stations* are being built for *electric vehicles* in India in the next 2 – 3 years which will reduce *oil* consumption by *30%*. This is a slap in the face of the *global oil lobby*.

    Not only this…
    … India has started *export* of *LCA fighter planes* and *BrahMos missile* which is proving to be a *massive setback* for the *global arms lobby*.

    *Modi* is a big *thorn* in the way of all these lobbies…

    … And they firmly believe that this *thorn* can be removed only by *public anger*.

    Another aspect…
    Most people are now shown to be angry at *Modi*’s *rallies and campaigning* in *Assam* and *West Bengal* elections. But they have no understanding of *Geo Politics*.

    *15 crore Bangladeshis* and *Rohingyas* in *Assam* and *West Bengal* many *lakh intruders* have been made guests.
    ( *Didi* and *Raga/Soga* have also made *Aadhaar Card* for everyone.)

    Now looking into this sensitivity, *Assam* and *Bengal* are *perhaps* more important to India than it is to *Kashmir*.

    Search *”Chicken Neck”* on Google.

    “Believe it or not, the *second wave* of *Chinese disease* in India has been projected for Modi to *fail* on every front and to make it *civil war* in the country.”

    It is a *dangerous game* of the *Maoists* of *China* and its *sleeper cells* hiding in India…
    Showing *24×7 dead bodies and oxygen deficiency* , *pandemic news* , the opposition parties and their governments are ignorantly (wantingly) co-conspiring with anti-Modi global lobbies.

    Why is the same *mother shown* dying as a *mother* of hundreds?

    Why only there is *crowd* in the *crematorium*?

    Some *70 tweets* alike surfaced Why that our *Mother* died *without oxygen* ??

    *Tool Kit Gang* again *active* at whose *gesture*?

    Suddenly the *farmer* also returned to the *border of Delhi*?

    As soon as the *recovery scandal* surfaced in Maharashtra, Modi started winning *Bengal*.

    …Then *how* did the *pandemic* appear again ???

    Brothern, this is a *conspiracy* Believe it or not !!

    This could be a *huge war*! I am not an *expert* but look at *situations* and think *why all of a sudden* this happened only with *India*…

    It can be a *formidable biological weapon* !!!

    After a short interval, this *fight* is going to go a long way.

    If the next *generational* is not to be made a *slave* then in that case…
    … you understand very well what you have to do.

    • What the hell…What is PM Modi fault in all this.He didn’t create virus…And who knew there would be an oxygen crisis in world….And also indian govt basically Modi govt was one of the first in world to introduce vaccine..People didn’t go to vaccine themselves..Because there were many morons then also who were criticising this vaccine..Such type of people deserve to die….Modi ji does everything for the sake of country he doesn’t build empires like gandhi govt…If he will not be Pm then chapri like you should be made PM????Who is caring for themseleves in corona….why didn’t people avoid fastfood… travelling…..WHY PUT EVERY BLAME ON MODIJI IF U WANT TO DIE YOU WILL DIE OF CORONA..NO ONE CAN STOP IF EVERYBODY AVOIDED UNNECESSARY THINGS THEN CONDITIONS WOULD BE BETTER AND KUMBH MELA NO ONE WAS FORCED TO GO EVERYONE WENT ON THEIR OWN RISK……YOU CAN’T BLAME ANYONE FOR MAKING YOU SICK..YOU NEED TO PROTECT YOURSELF…

    • Very well said. But stupids will not understand. Bring one nation one poll. But congress will not accept. Bring one nation one law but congress will not accept. Congress will not accept anything good for the nation just because they don’t like Modi.

    • The much needed truth and facts. I am delighted to know that people like you are still there. Everyone else is just looking at the empty glass and blaming the government without even knowing the reality. The writer of this anti government article is just another puppet of this so called lobby.
      I thank you for bringing out the deep sighted facts.

    • Realistic article on present day situation in INDIA, I have the same opinions. Because, 3-4 months ago, India was leading country in vaccine exports and out of pandemic with least damage. I think its a conspiracy of pharma lobby of western countries who used bilogical war upon us to sell their vaccines and dethrone PM Modiji. So we Indians must think smartly and not fell prey to the evil games of world pharma, oil, and arms lobbies. Jai Hind!!

  114. India already has leader towards right direction but definitely needs a media that takes India on the same path

  115. Bad shit. The print. India is developing country. If USA, Italy were not able to tackle you can’t blame Modi. It’s a pandemic nothing so small that you would ever know.
    Mr. Ashutosh Bharadwaj ( the author) if you think you are earning few dollars then understand you are loosing lot of rupees.
    I did pay for your articles but never ever now. Right and read your own articles.

    • Of course you are right. The government was not responsible for the political rallies, where a lot of idiots turned up without masks, or the Kumbh Mela, to which misguided worshippers gathered in their thousands, thinking the gods would protect them.

      Success has many parents, failure is an orphan. If the government claims responsibility for tackling the first wave with a degree of success last year, then it should equally take the blame for the budding disaster now.

      Blindly supporting the government and attacking anyone with a differing point of view or because they dared to speak out against almighty Modiji and his lackeys does not hide the fact that the government was woefully unprepared for handling this crisis.

    • It is very hard to digest the above thing, yes it’s true Indias leadership has failed to a higher extent that can’t be described, and those people talking about leadership things, when you guys lift your owns dead bodies and burn them in Street without even getting a chance to save them, you will feel it until then be a bhakt,
      PM care fund was government then but private now, when taking out rallies and calling out millions of people and making it a community spreading the government alone is responsible. Another thing every citizen should know the preamble of constitution. Which the government has dissected in all manners…

  116. It appears that HINDUSTAN now requires the help of CHRISTIAN and MUSLIM nations in its fight against COVID !!! Ha…ha…ha…so much for “Nationalism”. Congrats Bhakt Buddhus.

  117. Absolute crap. Paid and prejudiced, surely leftist, Congress paid and opportunistic play. We don’t need paid media who are puppets of anti national interests and forces. Same on so called Print generalist and editor!

  118. An article full of rubbish and nonsense, which can be valued less than your shit. The print has shown its true colour of anti nationalism and rogue paid journalism, an imbecile apologist of the Sonia pappu clan.Shame on the author and the paper, to have come out with such a biased, idiotic story.healthcare is a state subject,and still modi is blamed for everything. What were the states doing? Waiting for modi to hand out the magic potion?
    Only a dirty rag like the print can stoop to such low level of yellow journalism. trying to make political capital out of a pandemic. Shame on you and your ilk.

  119. Huge response, I don’t need to comment anymore.

    It’s a useless and baseless article. I’m definitely blocking this immature page.

  120. Why dont you imagine same situation with Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi as prime minister? I would like to read how Haridwar crisis was managed by the then State Govt and Central Govt. While accessing we forget about the gravity of situation. No Govt. Has ever faced so many problems at the same time. At least give him credit for not loosing his mind. These are really tough times.

  121. Actually Modi should have gone house to house to hand over masks to citizen and educated them on the importance of wearing masks, yeah!
    Also to control the population, Modi should visit every house and educated people of controlling their desire to produce more than 2 children… Yeah!

  122. Thank you for telling the truth like this article did. I am shocked at the number of Modi supporters still wanting to support a man who has single handedly destroyed thousands of lives by not doing his job. Modi only cares about winning elections and Hindu religious celebrations!

  123. This article is just like the views of modijis opponents, who just oppose modi for everything.how modiji is responsible for this pandemic. People’s responsibility is also there. Keeping social distance wearing mask, hand washing, for all these modi cannot come and see individually.it is the fault of people. When vaccine came, Congress leaders including Rahul discouraged it.some Congress people told that modi must take vaccine.in all possible ways Congress suppressed the vaccine abhiyaan.so for all this instead of blaming modiji, is is Congress to be blamed

  124. All the comments posted by the ANDH BHAKTS,,,, are just praising the PM OF INDIA,,,, what a country has become INDIA,,,, as per my knowledge what I have been reading in the news papers and watching the videos every where,,,,INDIA is being sold off to private organisations,,,,, and what I see is that it’s not sooo far,, that the whole india will be sold off,,,, just wait and watch,,, the currency will fall down,,, and it.will become worst than BANGLADESH,,,, or any other country,,,,,,
    There is NO VISION,,,, for the politicians ,,,, bcozzz maximum of.them.are either uneducated or educated illeterates,,,, they only know how to fill the bank balance in Swiss accounts,,,
    As and outsider,,,,, I feel.pity on this country,,,,,

    If the people of india,, elect all educated leaders,,,, then this day would have been seen by the people of INDIA…….

    • But where the Talented leaders but they are either well settled abroad or afraid of the goonda leaders both literate n illiterate, for themselves & their families expecting backlash as one may find here on this forum itself.

  126. Irrespective of any government let me ask one thing to the article writer as to whether he thinks that politicians are also humans or something else because the way he is saying is as if politicians are some supernatural who can suddenly say go and viruses will say sorry and leave from the world or India. Please understand that virus is not something biased towards any government nor will listen to any govt plus medical sciences is something different from your concept of government and politics

  127. The journalist who has given his opinion on the central govt and its functioning clearly indicates he is another congress person or its allies. Let this journalist first say what good he has done in helping the central government to get over this situation has he given any suggestion or views, no mention of the state governments cheating the people from the policies extended by central govt why such biased comments let him think b4 he makes his comments it is easy to blame and half the problem in the country is journalist giving false news.

  128. We dont need waste statements bharat is capable of doing any thing …if u r not interested living here u r free to get out of my country …n Narendra modiji is our pm he is the best PM ever since we got our independence than any one.. couple of best PM’s are there certainly not from a family rule..mind ur unmindfull thoughts where only a dirt filled up…. Narendra modiji is our pm in 2024 too …u never wrote this kind of medical thoughts before 2014 what just u have taken birth or what ..???? No no just asking u..u n ur unethical thoughts n anti bharat statement ok…

    • Bro give me money I will definitely leave india I don’t want to become slave that work to get food without their opinions and blindly doing modiji modiji mahan

  129. The print is always known for this, always spreading hatred and negativity. Come with solutions Mr. Author, don’t play the blame game only. You should become the part of solution.

  130. Shoddy and rubbbbnbbish article. Piece of shitttty is written. Media channel like yours go to heerrell. We sppppit on you.

  131. Good at letter but poorer in spirit and reality!
    this author seems to be biased and neglected what happened in the advanced countries with lesser population! Overall it seems to be written by another pappoo!

  132. Abysmal.

    Paid
    journalism The country needs to stand with its leaders
    Did USA France Brazil Japan bring the attack on its leaders.
    Stand together above politics and help.
    Shame on all who rant shame

  133. It is easy to pen a lot of rubbish without stating any facts. The last twelve months made us self sufficient in PPE, Masks etc such that we are one of the leading exporters of the same. Vaccines have been exported to needy countries and the goodwill generated is being repaid by all countries. India is not the only country seriously affected by the second wave- most developed nations are in worse situations. Unlike India, their political parties, news channels etc dont create panic ( like this rag) but co-operate to find a solution. The central government has risen to the occasion and has arranged for oxygen, cylinders,tankers etc on a war footing and the most ssue will be resolved in a week. Vaccines are imported, production doubled every month so that the country is vaccinated at the earliest. We are second in the number of vaccines carried out – be proud of such achievements. It is the responsibility of every party, state, citizen to contribute their mite in overcoming this pandemic. This is a major area of concern. Most of us proudly flaunt our mask around our neck & crowd every possible bar, restaurant, functions etc. Some incompetent state governments always resort to cheap politics. Last , but not the least – top opposition leaders like Manmohan singh, Rahul gandhi, Shashi Tharoor etc have made a major contribution by disregarding safety protocols and contracting covid to keep the numbers moving up. So instead of wasting time & space by putting up such ill advised article , put in some time and effort to publish constructive articles so that you can come out of the trashbin to which you will be consigned.

    • The rise of Hitler in Germany was primarily because of because of blind bakths like you, of course ,you could also be one of the hired blogs of BJP IT wing !Hello ,the game is over and the end card is ready ,get ready to get out lock stock and barrel !You are a shame for this great nation !Jai bharat @

    • If Modi takes the credit for vaccines produced by the scientists then he has to equally take the blame for the horrendous handling of the pandemic. At the very least, the madness of election rallies and kumbh are totally on him. The bizarre lack of preparedness in the second wave despite more than an year of preparation is also mostly on him.

      • Their looong replies trying to justify why modi is not responsible for nay fault are the proof of Bhakti. Faith doesn’t need any justification that’s why they would never agree when he is wrong.

    • I quite agree with you as if Modi is the cause of Covid,how illiterate can people be to the situation.Not realising the good Modi had done and how he has risen well to the situation. This is all foreign propoganda as the can’t bear to see India rising. Who care for their petty remarks Modi will rule our nation.

    • Complete bogus! No facts!! Clearly politics driven.
      Yes, the Government erred, but so did everyone. We all got complacent, forced government to open borders, flights, etc. Only government can’t be blamed for this situation.

    • Thus after reading this article, people in a big number seems disappointed by this writer who put an effort to express his views on this covid pandemic situation.
      In which he wrote about our elected leader as prime minister of India Mr. NARENDRA MODI.
      As writing this article our writer(as citizen of India) is trying to say that while performing or managing other activities or rituals which held in our country during this time, can’t this government or public servants should pay their responsibility in providing health care services in a manner of first priority during this time because as we know when our people our dying in this situation then they are the person who is responsible for all this ! As a saying at place of him if anybody also be there he is totally responsible .
      We all know it’s a position of prime minister
      Your one right decision can do miracles and wrong lead to situations like this which our citizens are facing . It’s a time remaining till yet instead of complaining support this writer . So this will be seen by our government in a serious informative manner…

  134. Dear editor sir,
    How can we bring down Modi, except branding natural pandemic havoc on him is the question on many opponents of Modi the PM.
    Please allow him to do his job right or wrong. Let us change him at right moments. Lest hawks are waiting. Even now people who amassed wealth illegally can do right things for the people and be pardoned by God.

  135. He is the best person to steering the country out from danger if anyone else was on his place per day it will be not 4 lacs but one million infection better shut up so he can bring the country out of trouble.

    • No he is the worst person to be in charge! He has already proven that he does not know how to run a government. Time for him to go!

      • We the people of India believed Modiji and voted him to power. We have trust in his leadership.
        Stupids like you cannot digest and understand his love for his motherland.
        We understand your propoganda.
        Modiji has already put all you in place ….time for all you anti india mindset to leave india.
        All your games are over….

  136. Trying to pull down a leadership using present day distress situation is well known play. They could engineer such campaigns and succeed in US. Indians are not as foolish as US citizens. Learn from likely win in West Bengal, Assam polls. Read the pulse of people. Not self announced intellectuals.
    Intellect is the one who propose workable solution to a problem. Not the one who use word power to demean majority opinion. These people should be picked & put in Covid centers to serve people.

  137. How can we bring down Modi, except branding natural pandemic havoc on him.
    Please allow him to do his job. Lest hawks are waiting. Even now people who amassed wealth illegally can do right things for the people and be pardoned by God.

    • Shall we not question PM Modiji , world knew about virus in Jan2020 then what his govt did in last 14 months after he clamped lock down and told people of country to provide him 29 days in which we will win war with Corona.The Govt did nothing to strengthen health infrastructure in country as our PM was busy in shilanyas of Ram mandir at Ayodhya and then in Bengal elections.His complete team of minister and party Top leadership was in Bengal to score victory in Elections.How does it matters to Modiji if few thousand countrymen looses life.Value of Indian life is nil in front of this power mingling govt and party.So today health crisis , lack of oxygen and lack of beds in Hospitals is gift of BJP govt to people of India.

  138. Though there is some complacency on part of central government, one cannot put all the blame on them. Even at current situation with people dying, I see some fools on streets in bangalore without wearing a mask. Who do we blame for this situation? All of us need to introspect before blaming others.

  139. This is totally a crap article by The Print. Rather playing the blame game it should come and help the people .What we need today is creators not the destroyers . So stop wasting time in printing these kind of articles which really doesn’t help anyone at this point of time. Be a warrior

  140. Choose only literate ,responsible ,educated persons as our leader who have vision to take our country out of illetracy,poverty ,division of country on communal basis. If an illetrate , uneducated person cannot educate your child in a school , can not run a school or university, cannot make a doctor, engineer or good economist then how can he lead a country like India

    • Sorry to say but it is MODI a who has taken to a very different level hats off to him and his teams … u guys are nothing but sold out souls

    • Is there any comparison standard in terms of his delivery so far ?
      Had he been visioned headed god he could have controlled this unprecedented situation
      Last year his act on placebotherapy (thali n tali) did wonders when the whole world had grappled with Chinese virus
      He had made every Indian proud of his wisdom.what you are referring is knowledge which comes and goes

      All hate mongers must understand ,history of pride and prejudice be written under his regime,still choice is in your hand

      India is the land of charismatic leaders like modi who has changed the course of dynastic politics .
      Certificates and qualifications are not the means to judge the wisdom which is embedded in Indian PM

      • Sir: Taali and Thali was to thank the people of medical profession. Same thing was done in almost every country. But hatred generated by folks like you is unprecedented. Your sarcasm is misplaced.

  141. Pathetic article..just trying to catch emotions and blame game…Is the author funded by anti national forces to write this nonsensical article…
    It’s easy to blame ..with our population ..the weighted average has been much lesser concerning covid viral load… don’t want to make opinion as everyone has one…but let’s respect the Government we chose and support them during the crisi

  142. What a shame !Print. In these times of disasters , how a media organization is spreading it’s anti- modi propaganda. Just because you hate modi, you will assasinate his character , he isn’t a corrupt politician like your pappu sena. People like you who are pseudo secular is such a hypocrite promoting incompetent crown prince who doesn’t even know indian basic middle class life. Even if modi is inefficient congress is there in states like maharashtra and kejriwal in delhi and we all know very well tge condition of delhi. So just stop your propaganda.

    • Modi is the man in charge. He took credit for beating COVID. Now he has to take the blame for letting it get bigger during the election season that should not have happen! Modi has failed as a leader!

  143. This is not the time to blame a leader alone,,, most of the country has failed to manage COVIT,, including US etc. western media delibaretly focusing on India’s failure, n we new Indian understand their intention very well,,new India don’t believe western media and scientific studies BLINDLY any more. Taking assistant and helping others in crisis is a normal practice.

  144. It seems that it’s going to be a trend to hurt Hindu Traditions, yes it was organised in proper manner but due to Govt enterferance it was cancelled immediately. As compareable to Maharashtra, Delhi where no Kumbh mela organised UP is in fare better place

  145. Criticism is always when one do right or wrong everybody has its own way of thinking with Indian constitution aloow the same under our moral right… May be such artical will not be possible in China…. Having said that pls assets the situation it is a worldwideedical crisis India has almost equal to the largest population of the world…. How much was spent by earlier govt.. Spl. Manmohan ji 10 yrs… .spending on public health infrastructure… Pls ask question given the first lockdown period of course it did push India growth backwards but life is important… Build mega medical structure control the 1st and 2md wave now after mutation the virus is spreading fast if you assume country like India could handle 2 cr. Active case it will not stop there so it is all about curbing it… Whilst the election were declared there was no sign of 3rd wave and election commission took the call… All I can say spread positivity rathe3 than negative and paid false narrative…. Act like responsible media..

    • Very true please spread positivity rather than blaming.its very clear in a state like Maharashtra & Delhi are so very complacent in making sure that things go wrong so that they could blame the centre for their sluggish and laid back attitude to address the issue.

  146. This narrative of blaming Modi for everything happening during present Pandemic crisis is too simple and deliberate one. Modi could effectively manage the 1st covid wave but the 2nd wave speed of infection is so high that the poor health infrastructure in some of the large states could collapsed. Poor health infrastructure in India is a result of criminal neglect of all successive governments Since Independence. This is an period of unprecedented Crisis and both ruling and opposition parties must be United to fight against the Invisible enemy. Hum honge kamyab…!

  147. When I vote on basis of healthcare and education..I will get same.. Unfortunately here basis of voting is different.

    • On what basis a particular community has been voting since independence, everyone knows. It even voted for partition of the country.

  148. This reporter belongs to the category where they show their vocabulary in reflecting India in poor light always and where were they sorting the 50+years of missile by congress and did they ever have the guts to ask same questions on the Kejriwals or Congress or the so called pseudo-secularists. Today they are being paid for to write nonsense About our country. The pandemic is well addressed in our country unlike many other countries and the public who won’t listen are the ones who cause the spike in covid. Am chair critics who cannot move a dust for a common cause can speak whatever they think without having any responsibility for doing anything in their lives. Such crass negativity can only come from such sick minds and let print encourage such thinking to go down in history with such negative journalism

  149. We are facing a monumental problem. Modi bashing will not solve it. He is doing his best inspite of leftist critisism. Any better alternate solutions welcome. Peoples cooperation is required in this war. Modi will lead and win this war. All this crap writers should do social service on the ground.

    • If Modi was doing his best he would not have taken credit for the first wave and would have spent time and money on upgrading the health care system. What is wrong with you Modi bhakts? Are you blind to what he has done to the country? He is a bad leader and even more a bad Prime Minister. His only care is to win elections for more power. He cares not if you cannot get a bed in a hospital or whether you can get oxygen. His only concern is if they win West Bengal elections. Modi had over a year to buy and manufacture vaccines for all but did nothing! He had a year to upgrade oxygen systems for hospitals. He did get some procurements made but only a few are operational. When a PM takes credit he must also take the blame when he fails!

    • Well said. Why Mr. Modi only. Why not state governments. Udhav in Maharashtra and Kejriwal in Delhi are they doing more than Modi.? 20+ meetings on Covid by Mr.Modi in April. Paid journalist. We understand your journalism.

  150. Ashutosh Bhardwaj – why do you write when you are too high to reach some conclusion. Please start with nursery again and this time be a good boy, may be you will learn something this time.
    The print – please share the credentials of your brilliant writers with their blog so that we don’t have waste time.

  151. Modi is there that the reason atleast we are able to have some control , if other leaders are things are even worst and out of control

  152. I think you are totally fool or a librandu
    Why only people see the fault of central government both Central and state government both are responsible for we also responsible for that because some people donot follow the rule that government suggest they even not wearing mask how you can say only pm is responsible so stop this bullshit

  153. Hope blog written by hopeless person. No fault of PM, after happening its very easy to find fault. When U S could not stop having access to every thing, how it is possible to teach our countryman to follow strict discipline. i am not from any political patty, its my first public reaction after reading unjustified note about P M. Request everyone to discourage such writers.

  154. It is only modi ,who has taken care of poor families in the Ayushman Bharat PM-JAY is the largest health assurance scheme in the world which aims at providing a health cover of Rs. 5 lakhs per family per year for secondary and tertiary care hospitalization to over 10.74 crores poor and vulnerable families (approximately 50 crore beneficiaries) that form the bottom 40% of the Indian population.
    CAN YOU NAME ANY ONE IN THE NATION HAS DONE LITTLE TO POOR IN THE FIELD OF ILL NESS.
    IT IS ONLY MODI AND MODI .ASK THOSE WHO ARE TAKING BENEFIT OF THE SCHEME.

  155. It is only modi ,who has taken care of poor families in the Ayushman Bharat PM-JAY is the largest health assurance scheme in the world which aims at providing a health cover of Rs. 5 lakhs per family per year for secondary and tertiary care hospitalization to over 10.74 crores poor and vulnerable families (approximately 50 crore beneficiaries) that form the bottom 40% of the Indian population. The households included are based on the deprivation and occupational criteria of Socio-Economic Caste Census 2011 (SECC 2011) for rural and urban areas respectively. PM-JAY was earlier known as the National Health Protection Scheme (NHPS) before being rechristened. It subsumed the then existing Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY) which had been launched in 2008. The coverage mentioned under PM-JAY, therefore, also includes families that were covered in RSBY but are not present in the SECC 2011 database. PM-JAY is fully funded by the Government and cost of implementation is shared between the Central and State Governments.

    Key Features of PM-JAY
    PM-JAY is the world’s largest health insurance/ assurance scheme fully financed by the government.
    It provides a cover of Rs. 5 lakhs per family per year for secondary and tertiary care hospitalization across public and private empanelled hospitals in India.
    Over 10.74 crore poor and vulnerable entitled families (approximately 50 crore beneficiaries) are eligible for these benefits.
    PM-JAY provides cashless access to health care services for the beneficiary at the point of service, that is, the hospital.
    PM-JAY envisions to help mitigate catastrophic expenditure on medical treatment which pushes nearly 6 crore Indians into poverty each year.
    It covers up to 3 days of pre-hospitalization and 15 days post-hospitalization expenses such as diagnostics and medicines.
    There is no restriction on the family size, age or gender.
    All pre–existing conditions are covered from day one.
    Benefits of the scheme are portable across the country i.e. a beneficiary can visit any empanelled public or private hospital in India to avail cashless treatment.
    Services include approximately 1,393 procedures covering all the costs related to treatment, including but not limited to drugs, supplies, diagnostic services, physician’s fees, room charges, surgeon charges, OT and ICU charges etc.
    Public hospitals are reimbursed for the healthcare services at par with the private hospitals.
    Benefit Cover Under PM-JAY
    Benefit cover under various Government-funded health insurance schemes in India have always been structured on an upper ceiling limit ranging from an annual cover of INR30,000 to INR3,00,000 per family across various States which created a fragmented system. PM-JAY provides cashless cover of up to INR5,00,000 to each eligible family per annum for listed secondary and tertiary care conditions. The cover under the scheme includes all expenses incurred on the following components of the treatment.

    Medical examination, treatment and consultation
    Pre-hospitalization
    Medicine and medical consumables
    Non-intensive and intensive care services
    Diagnostic and laboratory investigations
    Medical implantation services (where necessary)
    Accommodation benefits
    Food services
    Complications arising during treatment
    Post-hospitalization follow-up care up to 15 days
    The benefits of INR 5,00,000 are on a family floater basis which means that it can be used by one or all members of the family.

    CAN YOU NAME ANY ONE IN THE NATION HAS DONE LITTLE TO POOR IN THE FIELD OF ILL NESS.
    IT IS ONLY MODI AND MODI .ASK THOSE WHO ARE TAKING BENEFIT OF THE SCHEME.

  156. Modi ji got good recognition in his handling effectively the severe earth quake in Kutch area when he was CM Gujarat. But the same could not b repeated perhaps due to vast area of the country n heterogenity in political dispensations n citizens needing lot of foresight, great vision, advanced planning , coordination with all states n focus’s on medical infrastructure. Laidback attitude in country has cost.

  157. Most hopeless prestitute journalism by Print, all sickular articles, living in fools paradise, one of the main reason our country is poor, backward because our own people suffer from servant mentality and can’t bear strong leaders taking country forward. These sickular vultures will always be cribbing and it’s best to ignore them. But sadly existence of these vultures and their activities wastes resources;time,mindspace etc.

  158. So nice to read this pet dard article. Sure gives me a feeling we are better hands than the drugged dynasty. No e if these self seeking journos have the moral courage to point a finger at the massive failure of the India Administrative Service so called IAS who have failed India time and again , this time and will do so in future. Lot of heads should be rolling there for not preparing the health administration and Disaster Management to manage this disaster. They have been in the forefront of failure in all states and at Centre. In fact the question is do we need them. Not in this form at least. These journos do not want to anger the bureaucracy as they know they will get after their a***** and they will not be be seen around anywhere

  159. 21 paid post by this author, mostly a hate speech against BJP, the PM and Hindus. Irony theprint allowing such clowns to use their platform for posting such stupid meaningless articles. I dont sympathise with govt as kumbh and elections were their biggest flaws but does not mean they were careless or carefree in many others aspects. Also by far they are best chance India has got in a very long time and in foreseeable future seem to be the best option. We should right now be doing our part in stopping corona virus then letting such goons (author) take political advantage of scenario to praise his masters the Congress.

  160. You are right. Every country should be capable enough to meet its own needs. But that doesn’t mean we just boycott foreign goods including medicines and all. Every country is working hand in hand with others. And India needs to do that too, stop being racist about China, Pakistan and
    stop promoting Government driven propaganda

  161. Print – Stop being sarcastic.your views are exagerated,unwarranted and has nothing constructive.Every citizen is also responsible , Tommorow, if the sun rises a few minutes late , you will write a lengthier article blaming PM Modi. Ha, Ha Ha !!!
    Try writing such sarcastic articles in China.PM Modi has not taken your freedom away.Your articles are lately PM Modi specific,stupid & nothing else.Dont abuse democracy.

  162. India do not need any leader, but just someone who allows the system to work.
    India has a lot of the finest minds of the world, just allow the system to work.

  163. Haan ji sir… From where you collect all the great gyan. If u think modi is d person behind this chaos then I need to say make Kejriwal and uddhav thakrey and Rahul Gandhi or mayawati as PM or bolo Corona bhaga yoga. If you can’t help stop spreading negativity.

  164. It seems writer is advocating PAPU …Health is stated subject and what happened in Maharashtra, Delhi, other states, their CM to blame…Print is motivated by New York times …just don’t want strong decisive leader like Modi but want REMOTE PM ….very sad….

  165. Thoughts are reflected in action. During this pandemic this was very much clear. If Modi government had taken steps to build health care infrastructure instead of beating utensils,
    Lighting candles etc. we would not have seen this day. Its a clear clash of ideas and thoughts between A chaiwala V/s educated person.

  166. The utter hate you all have for kumbh an all is just beyond common understanding because I see a gathering as huge as any election rally every day 5 times at Jami masjid jaunpur and this is only one lots of same kind in every Indian city but no single world,You know this is what you all do makes BJP win

  167. When you do mistake accept it. More you try to shield yourself as a leader your image will go down. Present Govt along with all state Govt should work together to take all necessary steps on war footing to build a confidence among citizens of this country. Two mistakes could be avoided. First one is Bengal election. It could be deferred or could be done in two phase. Secondly lack of health care supplies, vaccines etc. All political parties should introspect and provide leadership. Blame game and petty politics and arrogance may cost them dearly in future.

  168. You are right . Every country should be capable enough to meet its own needs. But that doesn’t mean we just boycott foreign goods including medicines and all. Every country is working hand-in-hand with others. And India needs to do that too, stop being racist about China, Pakistan and
    stop promoting Govt. driven propaganda

  169. India’s hope is ebbing. It needs a leader who focuses on health, not victory.
    India needs Rahul Gandhi.

    Thoko taali!

  170. Know more about Pandemic & then write. No government in the world can handle such a surge of cases. Yes, if objective is attack Modi then keep on writing.

  171. An educated and a good dictator who does not have any greed of his/her own will be the best leader India now need

  172. We don’t need hidden agenda articles
    We know reality better than paid western paid journalists

  173. In my view Modi is the only hope for India. India as a country was on the verge of complete annihilation, in 2014, as a country and also of its identity and culture. Except of well heeled Leftist and English media, mostly centered around power corridors in Delhi, not many think like you do. Modi needs to be here in power for 15 years at least. Only then he will be able to clean the Augean’s Stable, that is India. I hope Modi wins in Bengal. Without that Modi’s work will be incomplete. You make your bias so obvious, it is sickening. At least have some semblance of a balance . Is that too much to ask. Who do you think should replace Modi today. Editorial staff of Print? or Rahul Gandhi, or Mamta Banarjee, or a party who makes agreements with the country’s sworn enemy. Organizations such as yours are the reason people outside of your echo chamber despise your kind.

    • Anyone could replace Modi! If he is your only faith in the country then I feel for you! Governments work for the people not the other way around!

    • Sad!!! Your have ben brainwashed into believing this. I feel sad for you. The way I see it, any tom dick and harry would have performed equally coz no result, no parameter of performance tell us that Modi has done anything deserving praise.

  174. Your journalism is worse than yellow..You and your publication are totally biased against Modi primarily because he didn’t free load your editor. Modi is the elected leader of India and will remain so till the people of India decide otherwise. Stop dishing out this crap.

  175. Can you tell me who really made you a writer? I’d wanna pick that person’s brain. Its been such a long time, this media comes out with one pathetic, hopeless, flailing attempt after another at the people in the government, never once getting their fact right neither making sense of their opinion.
    It seems like they’re on a single point agenda to respond in one way and one way alone, no matter what happens beyond their windowsill.
    Pathetic. Stupid. Shallow.

  176. GOI has to uplift the government hospital infrastructure and develop as world class hospitals in each state and in district level, but why GOI will do bcoz their no earning from government hospital, there is earning from bullet trains, Highest monuments. Mr. Aggrwal and Mr. Guha is right as per environment and rich or poor in society. One day within 100 years only rich will be their who can afford living and survive and poors will be live like slaves.
    To avoid this educated people from society has to come forward together against the GOI if it’s Congress or BJP.
    Every candidate should be elected through common examination test like UPSC, where they should know Politics, History Geography economy etc. So that they can know the country and people

  177. This is the bitter truth..if he really cared then he won’t be doing rallies after saying us to stay in our homes

  178. Semi literate fellows should know health is state subject,

    Anti Modi fellows depositing all covid deaths into PMs account

    Crediting all the covid recoveries in to CMs account

  179. I guess instead of spouting rubbish the writer can give constructive ideas if he has any. How can a single man be responsible for the ills. Pls don’t write nonsense and demoralise this great nation

  180. Dear Editor,
    If you think that people of India are reading news or articles from The print and they don’t have any unproductive time, then don’t release this type of articles which is completely base less during this situations. And always this must be considered the back ground of the person who scripts this. Don’t take any useless items on this forum. If someone has that of ability, go and be a state level MLA first. If Modi does not exists today your India could be led by Mamta Didi, or Akhilesh Yadav.

  181. National election is three years away. Respect indian democracy and respect indian people decisions .your media and you always abuse our people,s will.they elected modiji to take decisions right or wrong. You cannot find another leader like modi who is non corrupt, hardworking, efficient and with lot of common sense.you are welcome to campaign in 2024 election,or better still you contest the election presenting what would you do better than modiji

  182. This article reflects the brutal truth. This Govt. runs after utopian goals, whether it is atmanirvar bharat or corruption free society et al. These may be popular themes but not achievable unless the society develops both morally and economically. In the end, we will be left hanging in the middle.

  183. Print , your ground reality coverage is pathetic . You seems to be a paid media. Modi is much better than other crooked parties. Your criticism shows your intentions

  184. You dumb ashutosh bharadwaj, think before you publish something, it is of those mistakes who didn’t listened to the government guidelines and it’s not Modi or their government problem, if everyone had followed the guidelines properly from the beginning this wouldn’t be the seen of India at present… If you don’t know the facts then shut up, don’t publish these kind of idiotic articles to start another problem along with the existing one…

  185. Dear editor., luks like u have sold ur soul to the librandu gang….. Tell me any leader who can do even 10% of wht Modiji has done. Do u realize the condition in Bengal and Assam… If left unattended it will be given to China in a plate. We would loose these 2 states. Pls don’t spread so much of venom.. Can’t expect only Modi to do everything…. Wht are the state CM’s doing….. Busy filling pockets…

  186. As usual Modi hating article. And who could have done it better Congress. Entire Europe,America,China Brazil all failed there people
    Why these.ppl r not writing about population control which is the main culprit.

  187. That is jot fair. Did you guys write a similar article for the situation in USA? You would have closed shop by now. But you got the guts and talent to write this for India? Don’t you have enough strength to write something for the people? People of a nation are not behaving as needed and you write this about Modi?

  188. Playing blame game is very easy but working and finding solutions …on viruses like covid… corruption…. secularism…is really really hard…
    Be a motivator rather playing blame game

  189. Where are the solutions. We know the problems. Pessimistic approach to everything doesn’t make an article great. Think of how to make things better.

  190. It also very imperative, even more so, that we assess the “contribution” of opinion leaders such as yourself.
    What is the bottom line for your puff piece? That if it were any other party, UPA, INC, or even AAP, India’s Health Infrastructure would have been ready to tackle this pandemic? That if it were these parties in power their response to this medical emergency would be significantly better.. Nobody in India buys that. The situation would have been the same, whichever political party had been in power. This has been an unprecedented burden on the best of the developed nations. So this op Ed fails to convince any unbiased true blue Indian.
    If not the above, what is the point you intend to drive home?? that atleast the UPA made mistakes and apologised for them? So, your views would have been different, had Modi apologized for the Kumbh Mela n WB rallies.
    I don’t think so.. And there, lies your hypocrisy.. Sorry mate, you need to make better arguments to convince me to give my vote to RG or PG.

  191. Print is thinking that it knows the issues involved but sadly it is ill informed about Modi govt moves in health sector, allocation of funds etc. The state governments run the states as their propriety property and not as a state with clear cut governance model. It is Modi government which had brought in many health schemes, improvements in health infra. Previous central governments notably led by congress were feudal and never cared for the poor except for mnregascheme. They kept the states depend on the.
    See what Modi Govt has done- free cooking gas to poor, health care by way of toilets for all poor, health insurance scheme, purchase of defence equipments which Antony, former defence minister could not be done due to lack of funds, infra projects. Rafael fighter aircraft 36 nos. paid for, delivery 60% completed, Almost 100 indigenous fighter aircraft ordered from HAL, S400 DEFENCE systems to be delivered by Russia, Various missiles bought from Israel etc, New naval ships bought, commissioned, Large border roads, tunnels completed in Kashmir, Ladakh, Arunachal, Large road cum river bridges completed across brahmaputra, ganges in UP, Assam, Bihar; Green power production increased 10 fold, health, electronics, mobe, API, Chemical incentives approved for more than 60k cr to boost economy. JAM trinity saves huge amount of money on transfer to poor people bank accounts of all direct subsidies, Farmers get their MSP on procurement of paddy, wheat etc in Punhab, Haryana UP through Aadhar linked bank accounts.
    The one India concept of ration cards, GST, Digital priority etc implemented.
    But for Modi Government, India would have been a mess.
    Now during 2and Covid wave, lockdown across country would have been much more exponentially disastrous that the current issues faced in beds, oxygen supply, vaccine supply etc. Since india helped other countries in covid first, second phase, help us pouring from all over the world!!!

  192. Blame every failure on leadership, when despite Govt. telling repeat times to public to wear masks, take precautions.

    When people don’t care, such incidents are bound to happen and when they suffer immature journalists blame leadership to invite attention to be distinct with their competitors . No facts , no data , just the empty blame game.

  193. Need a good leader, wasting money for building stuches, all this mistakes is each and ever politicians in n india

  194. Utterly rubbish. Blaming to gain attention. Do some research before writing anything, there are infinite number of subjects to write about, which would really help readers.

  196. Looks like congress propaganda pays off better than ‘journalism’ …. apparently….. and FYI none of the congress clowns could have done anything even close to what Modi Ji has.

  197. Do what are your paymasters Gandhis, marathi manoos, diddi khujliwals doing… if you have balls write about your masters…

    Other than opposition in last years show me ONE CONSERVATIVE OPPOSITION ROLE they played.

    Shove up…u can’t answer

  198. India does not need a leader it is already having the best one possible …. Rather India need a system where public welfare is put above everything else…..I doubt any other leader could have handled the situation any better….This is fight which has to be fought by each any every indian rather than blaming the leader we should all fulfill aur responsibility and develop a system.

  199. Most idiotic of you to only highlight what suits you and your agenda, indian public know your kind of wolves pretty well. You and your idiotic article is nothing but a rant. If healthcare is states subject how is Modi to be blamed? And who stopped other parties from not campaigning in bengal. Why do you expect BJP to be saints all the time, while other parties continue to play all the dirty politics ?

    And by the way if you favorite corrupt leaders of con-grace would have worked on healthcare during their regime country wouldn’t hv faced. It takes times (not just 6.5 yrs) to bring things to ascertain level.

  200. We also need unbiased paper that puts the factually correct news…not Dala paper like the print….the print sees opportunity in this adversity to rant against a nationalistic leader like modi….middle finger to the print dalal

  201. Strangest of discussions at a time when media should help and educate people but it failed miserably. Government had the will to act decisively but media always painted the efforts of government in wrong colours that suited its interests. Government could’ve forced a lockdown but then media would’ve shown the other side that the people are suffering. Government never said to lower the guard against the pandemic.

  203. As usual triggered modi bhakts piling up in the comments section.
    Last year when covid was in control all credit went to modi but this year when the situation is out of control you robots are in here saying “why critical of my beloved modi?”

    make up your mind.
    this is what you get for voting an illiterate rioter to the highest post of the country.

  204. It also very imperative, even more so, that we assess the “contribution” of opinion leaders such as yourself.

    I don’t think so.. And there, lies your hypocrisy.. Sorry mate, you need to make better arguments to convince me to give my vote to RG or PG.

  205. Commentators and media like the Print are in a comfortable place to lay the blame on leadership . What is happening in India is a Pandemic and a super power like USA is unable to control the death and spread. It is the people who should understand the risk and danger . The leader and Government can only give guidance and it is up to the people to obey it. No country in the world has got the resources to handle millions of people at the same time and no leader can provide oxygen to millions with in a short span . By blaming the leader and the Government we cannot eliminate the virus. It is better to find a way to defeat the virus instead blaming the leader who has done many good things for the country.

  206. Why the hell are we blaming the Govt?where is the common people?did the state or central told the people to ignore covid protocols and lead a virus free life….the conditions of medical sector cannot be updated or improved within a span of 2-3 yrs.dnt forget Vatican of last yr,every Vatican citizen had a bed in hospital with all the facilities but still people were dying because of THEIR IGNORANCE.let us accept the fact that we are not in luxurious state,so are we not supposed to be careful.have our humanity and moral values have died.Are we not aware what is wrong and right.Unneccsary playing dirty politics is useless.let us be patient and adhere to rules support the govt to organise.
    Regards

  207. This is a leftist agenda . It is a biological warfare against i dia by the pharmaceutical industry from rich nations and also the sleeper cells of china . They want to malign Modi s name . Honestly the present situation is everyones responsibility including all state governments. But the left has paid most of press . They will try their best to malign and show ONLY MODI in a poor light . Hello left ideologists, you are responsible for this .

  208. And, what our utterly inefficient (state) chief ministers have been doing all this while since Corona outbreak ? Modi haters are trying to reap from this by, their untimely and undue polemics. Shouldn’t we support our leader ? Is this a time to dissect the handling of situation using sophistry ? Instead, we should strengthen our govt by creating awareness against the Corona pandemic across the nation. “Kahaani abhi baaki hai mere dost!”. Corona has not gone yet. Let Modi fight from the top, and let us all support him in winning this battle, or rather war. By making fun of our own elected leader, in fact, we are ridiculing ourselves.

  209. This is once in a century pandemic and it has been so unpredictable. Govt took hard lockdown steps last March, we made fun. Each life lost is painful. There is no comparison to make post independence. During last pandemic in 1918/1920, nearly 2 crores out of 22 crore population of undevided India lost their lives under British rule i. e. about 9% of population. Let us refrain from blame game and work unitedly to overcome this emergency. There will be times to settle scores once the storm has passed. We all need to do our own bit by opting for vaccine and using face mask.

  210. Arrogance is the reason for all the happenings.Modiji was a big hope for the entire world but he turned up to be a petty politician only interested in garnering botes.Being a tea seller is an asset but not able to raise to the occasion is a tragedy for all indians

  211. The Print, you are and always be crying baby. You dont have any agenda other than blaming Modi government for everything. You are paid for it. Better help people and government to solve issues.

  212. This article truely highlights it’s own hate agenda and doesn’t in anyway provide any solution to current situation. Only blaming Central govt will not serve the purpose. When lockdown was imposed they were ranting as to why lockdown were imposed.
    Local governments has not been able to arrange for even a basic facilities beds, icu etc for needy patients.

    When vaccination was launch , lot of propaganda was raised about our vaccines thereby misleading the people.

    This is not the time of politics or blame game. Let’s work as a team to win over such unprecedented situation.

  213. You seem to be having a set of commie liberals who are there only Modi bashing. There was not whimper till Feb21 when the infections came down to 11000 and active cases to 1 lakh all over India. Who was leading then, tell me name of one leader of opposition who would have taken the decisions he did at that time and ramped up health infrastructure. It is unfortunate that the state administrations of Maharastra, Delhi and Punjab failed to take appropriate action to nip the UK and other variant initially by making a concerted effort to detect, trace and isolate the few cases which came up. How long can you spoon feed these State leaders who cannot understand the gravity of the situation and mobilize their state administrative and health machinery. I know the buck stops with the PM and his government but there has to be accountability at the state level if you are part of the India team. Now that the things have come to passe at least motivate through you pen for the Indians to unite and fight this scourge together. We have had enough of this nit picking on the leadership issue. Give me one name of a leader who can take us out of this crisis.

  214. Before blaming Govts. For present state of affairs. What about the responsibility of beloved citizens. Did they follow Covid 19 fundamentals like wearing masks and keep distance and not moving in crowded places.Govt. will advise, it is we people who should follow for their safety.

  215. Ok, Just tell me one thing. isn’t it our responsibility too to take proper Precautions, take all safety measures. What happened when there is total locked down? Why isn’t the same thing happened. It’s us who didn’t take any lessons from the past Lockdown and went outside like nothing happened. Country like US, UK has fallen down who leads in medical Infrastructures. Then how can we expecting from a country whose population is more than 130+ Billon have proper medical facilities. Use your brain author no government not even The God can help us until we’re going to serious and do the needful. Writing from a AC room and criticising anyone is easy and if you really concerned then go and help the needy. Stop negativity when there is already the disastrous virus done a lot to our society. And again from ages humans are really ruthless towards nature. Lakhs of trees cuts down, Plastic burned, Industry and Vehicles pollutants , natural resources wasted a lot. Now it’s time for Nature . So just Shut up and Stay safe.

  216. The Repenting Indian,
    So you have lots of degrees/education, but lack knowledge. State knowledge is important than education. Any university can give you degree but not knowledge, which has to come from inside.

  217. You guys are such a pain in the arse. 🤦‍♂️idiots just blaming the government. Only if stupid nut jobs stayed inside and wore masks -_- much could have been avoided. Stupid illiterate people. The Print seems being paid a huge lot to bring down the government.

  218. This article truely highlights it’s own hate agenda and doesn’t in anyway provide any solution to current situation. Only blaming Central govt will not serve the purpose. When lockdown was imposed they were ranting as to why lockdown were imposed.
    Local governments has not been able to arrange for even a basic facilities beds, icu etc for needy patients.

    When vaccination was launch , lot of propaganda was raised about our vaccines thereby misleading the people.

    This is not the time of politics or blame game. Let’s work as a team to win over such unprecedented situation.

  219. From Space missions to ICMR vaccine everything positive in the last 7 years is credit to Modi, anything negative is the responsibility of states and public at large.
    The government at the center has certain powers which the states do not have. When the lockdown was announced in 2020, millions lost livelihoods, the center and RBI has fiscal and monetary tools to exercise. When demand died, they kept lowering interest rates. Who has benefitted? The top companies listed in the stock market. No fiscal stimulus, no help to small, medium enterprises or poor of this country. Zilch.
    When BJP criticized Congress before 2014 it was constructive, now everyone should provide constructive criticism when the BJP leadership is overseeing more than 2 lac deaths.
    When others die it’s news and numbers, when you lose a near one, family and friends it is no longer just another number adding to the death tally. What this government (center largely and states proportionately) lacks is empathy. They have slept over the last year when every country, every expert knew lockdown was never to stop the virus, it was just to give some breathing space to build infrastructure and reduce the strain on the medical infrastructure. The same infrastructure which is under immense pressure now was supposed to be strengthened over the last year. The governments had one full year!
    With businesses down, GST collections going down the states have no funds and are with a begging bowl. They have their own screwed up priorities as the center, so here we are with the center states blaming each other and public dying.
    What did the media do over the last year? SSR, Farmer protests, China? Every day we took attention away from the virus with these issues, we are paying with lives now.
    How about the vaccine rollout plan? Vishwaguru huh? For a population of 130-140 crores, we need atleast 200 crore doses. SII and Bharat Biotech can produce 20 crore doses a month. We have immunized 1-2% of our population so far. Why other pharma companies were not allowed to produce a publicly funded ICMR vaccine and just BB is a mystery just like the PM cares funds. Let’s not even talk about Kumbh mela and election rallies.
    After all these wonderful goofups, we want to find someone else to blame. The opposition, the United States, China, and even general public. And still there are people blindly supporting the naked emperor? What more price should we pay before we wake up to the reality of Modi-Shah’s hubris?

  220. Our PM Modi sir is only the leader for Nation, otherwise there is no Nation like Nation.

    The opponents just need to question themselves that atleast Am I following all basic rules during this pandemic situation ?
    Like stopping celebration with other families

    Don’t go for other family parties

    Meeting friends unnecessarily

    Stop going to movie theatre

    Stop ordering/eating outside foods even if it is not required

    etc.

  221. Aayega to modi hi 2024 …for 74 years no attention on health infra .. after 2014 so u expect to fill in the gap of 70 years? Usa france uk Italy saw worst phase last year. bjp vaccination who said this? More you attack Modi more bigger the mandate. Vultures can FO.

  224. propaganda. there are state governments, which are obviously not mentioned here. India had been independent for 60 plus years, that too is not mentioned here. worst media propaganda in time of crisis to get their old privilege back under the rule of dynasty

  225. Dear Bhardwaj ,
    I am very much agreed to your headline to this article that it’s not a PM job to individually care for state or municipal elections and also the fact that victory is not sustainable and permanent . A govt has to focus on welfare of the people and has to render a positive attitude towards the growth of HDI . But here are some facts that could also not be ignored which proceeds as ,
    1. The article written is wrongly matched with the topic , it means that, the topic has something different meaning embedded in it while the content is far different which at last don’t synchronize.
    (a) Either a separate article can be written on topic or the content has to be made relevant .
    (b) This article has been purposely stretched long with irrelevant information , Your writing reminds me of Pol Sci assignment of bachelor degree which has to be maintained the compulsory word limit .
    2. Now a very simple but logical question arise, How many leaders do you want to serve this contry at same time ? Assume that you have 20 problems in your body, then will you need 20 doctors for it to operate you …? If not then, learn balancing , learn some chapters on Pub Adm before writing on politics , Journalism is different thing but advising on politics , you are behaving like a small child who starts crying after a Horror Movie ( Covid 19 ).
    3. I accepts that Mr PM has been been very lenient on healthcare issues , when he was having enough time to prepare fr the battle , but this doesn’t mean that you will start theorizing with irrelevant facts in your article .
    4. Environmentalist Anil Agarwal had said that environmental destruction and rational management has very much to do with poverty , it’s not a new thing , as per SDG of UN , but I am assumed when you start pointing out that “Eradication of poverty in India is not possible without ensuring universal and quality healthcare to its people, and any attempt to undermine it will only intensify poverty and inequality.” How only universal and quality healthcare will eradicate poverty .? Please search for some good books and articles where it states that healthcare will solve the issue of poverty .
    | Healthcare is a component for living not a livelihood itself , whereas Poverty is purely based on Livelihood issues |

    And how become healthcare the Pillar od democracy ?
    I don’t have much to say , but please read more and more before writing on generic and global issues like environment , poverty, healthcare, pandemic etc. Don’t start making noise like crows in the sky .
    One more thing – Modi is not made as PM , but he is a chosen one.

    PS – You are satisfactory on Naxal issues , keep chewing them until you study well enough to write on global issues.

    Warm Regards,
    A reader with no expertise

  226. Educated fools ruled india for 60 years.. They left india under crucial conditions every decade.. Yeah we support modi for his decision making even though he doesn’t hails any degrees.. That so called educates who brought virus to my mother land and responsible for this all circus, blame them..only Degrees wont change india but ideal thinkers beyond caste creed religion do.. #NamoAgain

  227. It seems that this article is commissioned either by khangress or commies. Or the writer himself is their court-jester. He failed to notice that Kerala is self-sufficient in oxygen and with funds from centre. Very biased and hopless.

  228. It is not Modi bashing. One of the finest piece telling the truth. The Govt. is responsible to a large extent for the tragedy that is unfolding in front of our eyes. There’s no decent send off to the departed souls.

  229. Some people feel happy by stating Modi ji is uneducated…but he is MA from Gujarat University and an ardent reader.
    Also, people feel happy calling him a chai wala.
    Well, if these people have balls, then try to get an MLA ticket….. your comments will vanish

  230. Delhi voter selected very educated CM IIT+IRS. what that over qualified CM has done, is visible to every citizen. Inseated of working on Delhi, CM was busy with farmer protest and party expansion in Punjab and Gujarat. So real problem of this country is leader selection on free charity schemes and caste/religions factor. Everyone talks about development,but in election it never become real agenda. Only free gift and promises dominate election. In 10 yrs of rul3 and full authority in WB, what mamta di has done.bow many hospitals and industry started. So if Chaiwala would have imposed president rule on 5 state and deferred election, then same THE Print would have written article “how chaiwala killed democracy”. No one talks about biggest failure of 3 brains Maharashtra government. Modi is doing everything as leader. But other CM and burocrates & citizens also think about their roles and responsibilities. As a country of 130 cr people , current crisis situation was always prevailed in every indian mind. What will happen if Brazil or USA type last year situation happen in India. Modi is at least trying to work with everyone {industry,medical staff,army, state government} to overcome current crisis. Indian and India will fight back and stand again.

  231. Who said economy is faltering. The stock markets are rising day by day. Equities are performing extremely well.

  232. Celebrates should get involved in organizing VACCINE CAMPS – CoviShield Vaccine at Private Hospitals @ of Rs 250 per person for people who are around them like maid, drivers, security people, office workers to save lives as Modi is not interested in VACCINATING…….MODI – School Drop out affecting World Record 3,86,000 Indians with COVID-19 everyday due to MODI CAMPAIGNING……Israeli PM who is a MIT USA Topper is VACCINATING

    when Modi is CAPAIGNING…..NO CORONAVIRUS in Israel…School, Colleges OPEN in Israel…NO MASK in Israel due to entire population being Vaccinated last week.

  233. This a nonsense article and a diversion of topic. See the cities in and around Mumbai. People are still moving around freely with no masks or social distancing. Who is to blame for this? Only 1 person? Come on grow up

  234. I see bhakts are still indulging in their bhakti! There aren’t bigger anti nationals than these creatures!

  235. Fantastic article!! Commendable!! Finally someone with guts to highlight and point out the wrong doings of the present day government. Lol, all the negative comments against the article here find it hard to digest. The truth is always bitter and we’re now taking it with a pinch Salt.
    You’ll can try and protect the Government as much as you can, it just goes to prove how blind, gullible, easily influenced, lacking common sense people are. Like a herd of cattle following the bandwagon.
    So all you smart people in the comments, then please go ahead and elaborate what was the need to hold huge rallied amid a pandemic. By the way, just the other day, a huge rally was held in Telengana with the party folks gloating over it. People are just as dumb as their party leaders. The vote bank means nothing if it’s coming from dead people. I hope you’ll have conscience.

  236. Such articles from print raises serious doubts on its quality journalism claim. We all have collectively failed as a nation and we all need to face this pandemic as a nation.

    Not just government(center and state included), the beurocracy, judiciary, media, the people, all of us had burried our heads in the ground until it hit us hard. Let’s acknowledge our mistakes and fix it.

  237. We all forget that this is an unexpected pandemic situation which we are all dealing with. We all should focus on “How we can help the government”.

  238. Biased reporter….
    Best PM since independence…..Modiji works hard, thinks hard for the benefits of people..Tries hard to free the country from corrupt politician, hoarder, black market tier.
    Unfortunately, corona 2nd wave has come like Sunami…Modiji or BJP are not to be blamed…
    We should be blamed for it not abiding by the safety rule…
    Opposition, including The Print and its reporter….we know well ahead about content of its article…
    So find out a competent leader to lead India….don’t say it is Raga, Priyanka or great corrupt Chidambar ji
    .

  239. You can’t judge and blame our country’s PM like this. I am really heartbroken with our country’s current situation however it is not at all Modi Ji’s fault that people are getting sick. It’s only because we took it casually and did not follow the protocols. Did you write any positive articles too for all these years where he has been doing tremendous work for the country and not himself?

  240. Avoid criticism give some solution. This is pandemic and developed countries failed in the first stage and this time it is 10 times more than the 1 st one. We should acknowledge the efforts made by Govt to save the country aand come out of this pandemic. It is responsibility of ever citizen to behave like a leader in this crises situation.

  241. You can’t judge and blame our country’s PM like this. I am really heartbroken with our country’s current situation however it is not at all Modi Ji’s fault that people are getting sick. It’s only because we took it casually and did not follow the protocols. Did you write any positive articles too for all these years where he has been doing tremendous work for the country and not himself?

  242. We should not blame Modiji’s leadership ability. Already whole world knows. Instead people should be more careful then year 2020 because it is not only in India but you take any democratic country all of them are facing similar issue. For time being assume this virus is created by man made, then they can create multiple versions of it with strongerthen previous. So please take care of yourself, your family and friends by helping them teaching yoga and healthy food habits.

    The 1st Law of Organisations is: if there’s a snafu it means that the head who led into it is incompetent and hence he’s also incompetent to repair the situation.
    The 2nd Law is: The head who created the snafu, if allowed to continue, will be more interested in a cover-up operation to prove there was no snafu at all or in deflecting the blame to others than act honestly and responsibly.
    The 3rd Law is: if people want things to return to normalcy, ensure that the top guy is replaced immediately.

  244. *Is the second corona wave a planned biological war against India?*
    Do you believe that the *second wave of epidemic that is currently spreading in India* is due to the spread of the virus in general?
    Until a fortnight ago I used to believe that this is the *second wave*, but now a lot of _deep doubts_ has gone home in my mind.
    Look at the state of the entire *Indian subcontinent*. *The Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan* have no *second wave* in these countries or in any other country in Asia. Those countries today have similar conditions as they were in India two-and-a-half months ago.
    Then how did this *bomb* explode in India itself?
    Are the citizens of all those countries much more *disciplined than Indians*? Do they wear *masks* round the clock to avoid epidemics ?
    No!
    Is their *geographical location different from India*?
    No!
    Then, why this *second wave* could not even touch these countries and is *breaking* India, badly, why?
    *ICMR* has said at the time of first wave that crores of people in India got this *disease* and they did not even know when *crores of people* suffered it and *immunity* developed in them then how come this *second wave*
    *How dangerous did it become then*?
    And why did it happen *only in India*?
    Lets look at the global conditions before & now in this epidemic.
    From *medicine, vaccine to economy management, India amazed the whole world*.
    And now, understand the * real concern of *China*. talking of *help to India* today.
    Last year was also *infiltrating in the epidemic period*.
    After getting the *kicks* they started to help us, *does it not raise doubts* ????
    _Pakistan as Chirashatru is lamely talking of help too_!!!..
    One very important reason is that *Modi* is not bowing down like *Trump*.
    The world’s *Pharma Lobby, Oil Lobby and Arms Lobby* created this *epidemic and under the guise of *BlackLivesMatter* and
    *George Floyd* beat *Trump* to retreat, by causing a terrible uproar in the *media on the epidemic issues*.
    All because *Trump* confronted these *lobbies*. Today the same lobby people are painstakingly on all fours with day in day out attacks on *Modi*.
    Do you know why?
    Because …the business of : *pharma companies at least 4 to 6 trillion dollars (annually)*.
    *Vaccine business of at least 1.25 trillion*
    Is all set to be reduced to zero.
    The *PPE Kit* of *500 billion dollars* and *business of mask* was almost reduced to near nothing, when people relaxed after *first wave*, and even _went to Kumbh, election rallies etc, with minimal caution_.
    In the light of medical sufficiency of India, the lobbies was suffering *colossal loss*.
    How did the country that was always _hands to mouth_ become a *vaccine exporting country*?
    And who was not digesting all this?
    Know this *pain* of a country like *Germany*, lamenting how *India* beat us in the field of *Drugs*
    Think all over again what slipped & got out of hands of other affluent nations?.
    Go ahead …Can anyone imagine 75000 to 100000 charging stations are being built for *electric vehicles* in India in the next 2 – 3 years which will reduce *oil consumption by/upto 30%*.?
    This is a slap in the face of the *global oil lobby*.
    And not only this…
    … India has started to *export LCA fighter planes* and *BrahMos missile* which is proving to be a *big blow* to the *global arms lobby*.
    *Modi is a big thorn* in the way of all these lobbies …
    … and believing that this *thorn can be removed only by public anger* is the tacit ploy of these lobbies.
    Imagine *Pfizer* calling up for defense set up in exchange of vaccine, drugs, a new arm twisting tactics with needy nations.
    Another aspect…
    Most people are now shown to be angry at *Modi’s rallies and campaigning in Assam and West Bengal elections. But
    They have no understanding of *Geo Politics*.
    *15 crore Bangladeshis and Rohingyas intruders* in Assam n West Bengal *Didi* and *Gandhi* made *Aadhaar Card* for everyone, as being more important to India than *Kashmir issue*.
    (Search * “Chicken Neck” * on Google).
    Believe it or not, *second wave of Chinese disease in India has been brought to fail Modi on every front and to trigger *civil war in the country*.
    It is a *dangerous game* of the *Maoists of China* and its *sleeper cells* hiding in India…
    Showing *24×7 corpses and *lack of oxygen* of *pandemic* against *Modi government* is a opposition-led part of this *conspiracy* in collusion with big tech lobbies of developed world to overthrow the present dispensation, and reinstall the leftists- Maoists, as happened in America.
    But here they forget, _Modi isn’t Trump_, at best turmoil for trouble will linger, dampening to *stability & survival* as an outcome.
    Come on,come to think, ‘Why is the same *mother* dying as a *mother* of hundreds’?
    Why only the *crowd* in the *crematoriums*?
    Same *70 tweets* – Why- our *Amma died without oxygen* ??
    *Tool Kit Gang* Again Active On whose *hint*?
    Suddenly the *farmer* also returned to the *border*?
    As soon as the *recovery scandal* surfaced in Maharashtra, and Modi started winning *Bengal*.
    … how did *the epidemic* appear again * ???
    *Brothers, this is a conspiracy Believe it or not* !!
    *This could be a huge war*!
    I am not an expert but look at situations and think why all of a sudden it happened only with India ?
    It can be a *formidable biological weapon* !!!
    After a short interval, this fight *is going to go a long way*.
    If the next *generation* is not to be made a *slave* then in any case… _understand yourself very well about what to do_.

    A must read…

    • Yes, correct, electrical vehicles are coming soon brother! Wait for it! As a step of boycotting Oil companies, now government is making a threat to them by increasing oil price almost by 75% since Modi ji came into power. And Indian households are enjoying with the price they pay now for LPG cylinders. I think the huge increase in the basic expenditures is because all Indians has got rich self sufficient to spend after Modiji has made the country’s GDP to the record. Farmers are also very happy nowadays and they are getting satisfied very early in their life because of their luxurious life style, they are getting overwhelmed, and hanging themselves. Modiji has spent 3000 crores for a statue in Gujrat and that is giving abundance of oxygen and medical care to the Covid affected people in Gujrat. And Modiji boycotted all the rallies of BJP and set an example to the people how to follow COVID protocol, and Indians are learning from that! And I dont understand why people blame on Maha Kumbh festiv where 30 lakhs of people various states has gathered in Haridwar closely packed , when we already know Corona will only originate from Tablighi Jamaat congregations!? Modiji has wisely made the decisions carefully in these pandemic situation 👍👍😂

  246. Yes now healthcare is in total disarray. It was magnificent earlier….
    Observed nobody talks on population and it’s explosion… And how to control the same. Gyani maharaj

  247. Any word by the author on China, apparently his intellectual fatherland, for unleashing the virus on the planet? Any word on why even after one year we do not know the exact source in China?
    Any commentary on Covid and the hardships it has brought on people and governments of the world that does not even mention the origin of chaos is an apology for the Oriental Godless who also happen to be the custodians of the compromised menacing the journalistic and literary world.

  248. Even if we have our next best candidate from Congress, they won’t allow him to be PM because they want to promote RaGa. Modi did election rallies in West Bengal else it would have become another Kashmir type story. Kumbh Mela amid this pandemic is a grave mistake, but is it the only reason for the second wave. All the state governments are equally responsible for the mishandling of the COVID19 situation. Only one person cannot be held responsible.

  250. It seems this article has been published on The Print without Shekhar Gupta’s knowledge. It would do us a great service if it leads to the moneybag investors of The Print being raided by CBI, Enforcement Directorate etc, and eventual shut down of The Print.

  251. Can I humbly request the Print to publish such incoherent rants in the name of fearless journalism ? In this hour od national unprecedented crisis we, a most indiscipline democracy need to rally behind the Prime Minister. Who else do we have, closely as competent and dedicated ?

  252. So all blame is on Modi and not the people? No matter how many clap trap articles are published to character assassinate Modi, people of India are firmly with him.

    I remember how many were baying for his blood when economy sank because of lockdown and all of them were made shut their traps in the next quarters. I am pretty sure, you will hide too after a few months.

  253. Amusing to read this asinine drivel… Apparently healthcare is the foundation of democracy now! I guess the previous 70 years all the PMs and CMs were unaware of this fact to leave India with this sort of healthcare system!
    What is even more comical is the asinine pejorative and openly hyperbole adjectives used to claim this is the most “hopeless” time and the “biggest tragedy” India has faced – when lakhs of nameless people died every year in road accidents, thousands of children die of sickness and malnutrition, when tens of thousands of women die in childbirth, when illness caused by unsanitary living conditions kill tens of thousands each year , then there is no “tragedy” !
    When thousands of people die in terrorist violence due to the incompetence of the State, when naxals, insurgents and criminals run rampant because of State impotence then these clowns dont consider it a “failure of leadership” but now suddenly PM Modi has to wipe their noses and was the only one who did rallies in Bengal or forced people with death threats to come to the Kumb Mela??

  254. For better & proper road map for developements considering the available resources we need…
    1.Being a biggest Democracy Country in the World . We should consider for our Better Atamanirbhar Bharat, New India.
    2.The elected representative should be well qualified..
    3.In every sector , depending upon the existant developements further additional plan is to be made.
    4. Leader must be well Qualified .
    5. For each sector qualifiefd leader & qualified team is necessary.
    6. Flexible policies for each sector
    7. No any personal attacks in the politics.
    8. Regular Review of the plans to take correct actions.
    Etc

  255. It is silly to waste time by Blaming The Government.No Government or Even GOD can not Give HEALTH to our UNHEALTHY PRACTICES.
    What were we DOING for The Last One Year to SAFEGUARDING our own HEALTH ?
    No Government Can Provide Health Facilities BY MAGIC to Everyone what they Need INSTANTENIOUSLY , UNDER UNEXPECTED SURGE OF PATIENTS RUSH.
    Frontline WARRIORS are Also HUMAN BEINGS , ALLOW them to ATTEND TO THE PATIENTS PEACEFULLY.
    For us ! Our Patient’ s life ALONE IS IMPORTANT.
    But ? For them ??? EVERY PATIENT’ S LIFE IS IMPORTANT .
    If the Stupid Public Vandalize The Hospital , WHAT WILL BE THE FATE OF OTHER PATIENTS ?
    If Big Heads in The Society Shout At THE FRONTLINE WARRIES , Who will Come and Attend The Critical Conditions of the Patients ?
    ARE we REALLY BEHAVING AS SENSIBLE HEALTHY HUMANBEINGS ?
    Our HONEST ANSWER will make us REALIZE THE TRUE CAUSE FOR our Present Plight.

    It is Not Late Even Now , for us to Mend our Healthy Social Behaviors .

    Shall we Take An OATH RIGHT NOW , to Bring Normalcy in our MOTHER LAND by our HONEST HALTHY HABITS ?

    With Best Wishes For Betterment Always ,
    SHIVA KUMAR.T.N.

    I have humbly given my opinion here , if it is not accepted it is not my fault .
    May God bless you all always.

  256. It is clear the way congrass and other parties who are losing elections are asking BALLOT paper elections be restored.

    It’s a clear attempt to again try and win elections by using BOOTH CAPTURING which MANY a times saw booths were 200 percent votes were cast with the help of SECULAR MUSCLE POWER.

    THIS journalist who have become IMPOTENT due to free and fair elections are desperate to bring RIGGED elections back so that they can become rich again by return of corruption is not a surprising phenomenon.

  257. श्रीमान प्रजातंत्र में नेता का चयन इस आधार पर होता है की जनता किसे पसंद करती हैं ,ना कि इस मूर्खतापूर्ण तथ्य पर कि जो स्वास्थ्य सेवाएं में सुधार करें,कोन नेता स्वास्थ्य सेवाएं को सुधार सकता है इसका क्या पैमाना है कुल मिलाकर तथाकथित मूर्ख बुद्धिजीवियों के दिमाग में घूम फिर कर यही आता है कि प्रधानमंत्री का पद नेहरू परिवार के लिए आरक्षित होना चाहिए।

  258. Unbalanced article . Balanced writing is extinct and nowadays most propagate only one perspective, theory.

  259. Crappy Media – You mean whole World leaders have failed, US, UK, everywhere… its an unprecedented crisis.

    How I wish… #indianmedia dont create a feeling of fear with negative news.
    Instead play a role in broadcasting availability of hospital beds, oxygen, expert doctor interviews and suggestions… that is left to netizens & twitteratis…
    #COVID19India #OxygenShortage

  260. I think you are blind followers. You don’t have to see situation. When election are going on then for one vote they arrange a booth in forest. But when people need an emergency services they unable do this. Why ? Indian people are elected a leader for better future.
    Not a party prayers. They know about situation of covid 19 but they do ellection rallies, khumbh mela, opening ceremony etc.
    After one year they don’t providing medical facilities for this situation. They haven’t any plans for this situation. Indian people are elected a leader not party prayers. If leaders are not able for better future then why they standing. We don’t talk about any party but we have to talk about future of India and their people. when leader elected by people then they see as a leader of indian government. They want basic needs. So please be indian

  261. Good article. The entire blame rests with the Central Govt. Since 2014 achievements of this Govt was spreading hatred, religious politics, Pakistan, Mandir Masjid, poor GDP, job losses, Bank losses, sale of Govt controlled institutions, building statues, funds for Vistas, toppling state Govt’s, buying all institutions, corporate licking, Demonitisation, crushing of dissent the list goes on. Health or Education are nowhere. No wonder, under FEKU PM our country has become a laughing stock under short span of time. Any high number of deaths will be neglected by our PM, because he loves his seat/power more than crores of Indians.

  262. YOU WROTE THIS ARTICLE SITTING IN YOUR AIRCONDITIONER. YOU ARE MOST INHUMAN PERSON I CAN EVER THINK OFF.
    CAN YOU PUBLISH YOUR CONTRIBUTION IN PRESENT PANDEMIC?

  263. If not Modi Ji, then Who? Pappu, Chappu, Pappy? Totally Biased and Paid journalism with special agenda against India,is the best fit to this Article. When We have Jaichands within India, which are more dangerous than Our border enemies like China and Pakistan.
    Height of hating Modi Ji is an example is this Article.

  264. It is so easy to criticise the leadership.Did any of the State Governments anticipate the second surge in spite of indications in Kerala and Maharashtra.Could not all the political parties have demanded the postponement of the State Assembly Elections.The Constitutional requirements for extending the life of the State Assemblies could have been accomplished through suitable Parliamentary legislation.Yes,the Modi Government should have taken the initiative for this.And it was certainly irresponsible for the Prime Minister and other Central Ministers to hold massive election rallies.The same applies to the Haridvar Kumbh.The other political parties in opposition are equally culpable for the present situation All the political parties are equally to be blamed for our present plight.

  265. To fight covid new wave is not easy and Pm and all officials and Cms are doing their best. The public is not cooperating and putting blame on them. No mask, not bothered, falling on each other, kumbh mela , what is all this? People are not disciplined and not having proper good thinking and hence suffering n putting blames on CMS, PMS, DOCTORS, or rather on anyone except themselves.

  266. Basically a Currupt Congressi Chamcha. Praising MANREGA of UPA , which was a Loot of Govt funds by Congress . Modiji linked MANREGA with Aadhar and distributing more than Double the Funds yearly.

    Actually these Writers are not getting any Freebies now which Congress used to give as alms.

    Health is state subject , if Currupt Gandhi family is so efficient thdn why Punjab , Rajasthan , Chattishgarh & Maharashtra is suffering.
    Bomb Blast , Terrorist Attacks were regular feature during Congress …..killing thousands. Now that has stopped.

    Print is promoting Anti Modi writers.

  267. Write up like this one’s are preety interesting. It speaks ground reality but some people cannot digest it even after all these overwhelming disaster. They will still support modi government.I just don’t get it, why,?😁

  268. Modi & his team has done everything possible , yet it is our population & population density & extreme n carelessness on the part of citizen are the main cause
    No other person or leader could of done ever half of what modi has done
    All countries where corona is handled well are due to responsible behavior of their citizen

  269. Who the F are you ThePrint fake media .
    We have great leader for our country. Mind your business. Idiot!

  270. Looking at the reply of readers, I think the editor should delete the article and save some shame if left with him.Lets stand together in this tough time and stop blame game.

  271. Dear Ashutosh/ Gupta ji. Do you really think you and others can really build s campaign around this? Or is it to keep the publication running. Cross over to the right side and enjoy the life.

  272. It is a pity that Times of India – the Jain Group are also towing this absurd article. COVID-19 has not spared any one be it Americans, British, Iranians, Italians, Canadians, not to mention Chinese. Do we blame their leaders? Please grow up, this virus leaves no one and its mutated variant has no precedence. So stop your insane blame game and get your act together.

  273. India’s hope is ebbing. Indeed.

    But what was this hope ? For many (Hindus), Modi was the Great Hope who would provide a Hindu nation, and make the world notice and respect Hindus as a superpower. The ideology was called Hindutva, aka as Hindu nationalism (western press) or, fascism, Hindu style (Nehru).

    Modi rose to power ONLY due to a vicious pogrom against Muslims in 2002. Without that, he could not have made an indelible mark on Hindu minds. Thrashing the 9% Muslims in Gujarat created a sense of power and entitlement in many Hindus. Many Hindus cast aside rational thinking and give Modi a carte blanche, even if he threw them into the gutter also. As long as he made Muslims suffer, many Hindus were contended. Now of course, he has thrown them into the funeral pyre, it remains to be seen whether the Hindus will take that also as a sacrifice for the Fuhrer to forge a Hindu nation.

    For those who are not sold out to Hindutva, Modi has failed, indeed Hindutva has failed. The outside world can see India is at the bottom of the Third World. Even Bangladesh and Nepal are not dying like this. Hindutva positivity demands we ‘vote as a Hindu, but die as a disposable’ (Arundhati Roy).

    India has no hope unless Hindus give up Hindutva. In the 1953, Nehru wrote a letter to his home minister Kailashnath Katju saying, “The fate of India is largely tied up with the Hindu outlook. If the present Hindu outlook does not change radically, I am quite sure that India is doomed.”

    The ‘Hindu outlook’ Nehru meant was Hindutva. Apart from fighting Muslims, it is centred round maintaining caste iniquity, returning to an imaginary Vedic world, propagation of cows, mythology and superstition over science, and lately posing as a vishwa guru and a superpower.

  274. Print and its editors owners are known anti Modiji for me this is a kind of sabotage by opposition lead by congress or G gang to bring self suicidal biological weapons in the form of Covid to set score against Modiji else election happen in 4 states COVID affects entire country is hard to believe

  275. Only Indians are great in blaming others. Fed up of blame game. If Modi cannot solve the present crisis no other Indian politician can solve. Whats the contribution of the author of this article towards eradication of virus.

  276. Yes PM modi and his government should be asked tough questions and held accountable for many things so should be others. There is so much of take news by many modi haters who want destabilize India and project it in a very bad shape internationally just to remove him from power . Very distressing..

  277. Complete rant. Did the people practice masking and social distance. If Modi had gone about building the infrastructure in states, every opposition leader would have cried saying it is an interference in state affairs. Many opposition leaders created doubts on the vaccines. Modi or BJP alone is not responsible.

  278. Perhaps this biased writer is waiting for Italian Pappu to teach India Covid leadership??!!!!!??

  279. You scoundrels sitting in glass houses want to throw stones on PM Modi and central government. Print is having a hidden agenda in publishing such rubbish stories which people of this country, especially hindus are aware.
    Please understand that they don’t care about such lies and stupid pressitutes like you.

  280. Very funny last year this time everyone raped PM n Govt for imposing lock down n criticized all the measures taken by FM n Govt …. and today they do the same thing… what ever PM n his Govt does your job is to criticize

  281. When the going was good this writer was lapping it up. This is not just a natural calamity / disaster , it is a world- wide God inflicted one , if one does not want to term it as a man made one emanating from China. One Nobel prize winning scientist has termed it as man made.
    Why didn’t u n your ilk predict that come summer the virus will be back with a vengeance. No one is to blame especially when we are still considered a third world country . We have limited resources n have coped n are coping in the best possible fashion.
    India minus people like u will overcome this menace. India will be well equipped to deal with covid19 when it hits us again next year. I hope u are not around at that time as u have nothing good to say about this our great country of ours.

  282. As ever, all write-ups on The Print are one sided. Appears to be sponsored by the present day opposition and foreign sponsored ngo. Here is one person who has been working day in and day out for the welfare of people of the country. In July 2020 itself the DCGI had written to States to make arrangements for oxygen. Barring a few hospitals under the jurisdiction of central government, the rest are under the control of state governments or private bodies. Instead of ramping up the infrastructure for health facilities and oxygen, most of the states simultaneously joined the chorus of lack of oxygen supply and inadequate vaccine. All these people found an easy scapegoat in PM Modi. When all other ploy failed, they have found a new one to corner him and humiliate him on international arena too. All said and done, my hear goes out to those who have lost their lives for want of oxygen and other medicines and facilities due to the sheer incompetence of state governments. Also, Kumbh Mela gathering and limitless participants in election rallies could have been avoided. I hope The Print will discontinue such one sided prejudiced write-ups.

  283. To day your reporter s conscious woken up.why not last 60 years this idea of health infrastructure comeup in mind .only naming all roads bridges.buildings ,institutions etc was motive so you have to face the music .for every thing blame modi.what oppositions doing constructive work other than hartal from 6 months .all over india

  284. Thank God we have a leader like Modi Ji in this crisis. If he was not there this country would have knelt down. He initiated serious efforts to produce vaccine, make India self reliant.

  285. Are the above post are of readers or ITCell and ANDHBHAKTS. I mean are this people seriously mean what they are saying if they are not IT cell and ANDHBHAKTS.

    Since 1947 our education failed horribly thanks to congress will never forgive them ,look the result what they did they created Zombies

  286. Amazing that an international campaign is being built against a massively successful leader. The man-made pandemic hit us so hard and everyone is doing politics to throw out a government that has taken India to new heights. I would suggest media focus on building a health care narrative for India without political bias. Workout how we can improve health care delivery in the most inexpensive manner in the coming years. Build up that narrative instead of playing in the hands of international conspirators.

  287. Adar Poonawala getting rich that during the pandemic he had to show off his wealth by renting an house in London giving him the ranking of being first in the world in that category.
    Atleast he could have thought of his country n his fellow country people.

  288. What will you say about the indian people’s Irresponsible behaviour #not wearing of masks in public places after unlock#not following the govt.guidelines over chewing pan masalas, spitting in public# unnecessary travel #and many more? It’s not about the Modi or Rahul govt. It’s all about the the responsibility taken by the common people.

  289. After all he’s a dirty political leader but not People Leader. He never deserve to lead India. Kindly step down & never try to lead India.
    Jai Hind…🙏

  290. Dear Publisher of PRINT MEDIA n WIRE media,
    Your agenda of maligning an image of HONEST RELIABLE TRUSTWORTHY PATRIOTIC PM MODIJI is known to the world. WE believe that he is a fantastic leader respected all over the world.
    I have been watching that an agenda called anti national favouring gaddar n terrorist n pakiatan will not be useful to sell the products.
    So be patriotic n be helpful to HONEST RELIABLE PEOPLE TRUSTWORTHY PATRIOTIC PM MODIJI

  291. As usual talking crap that’s all you guys can do helicopter NRL get your head out of congress ass and stop locking balls

  292. Let us accept that everything that is stated in this article is true. A simple question. Some of the worst performing States in terms of Covid-19 are Maharashtra, Chattisgarh, Punjab and Rajasthan. Congress is in power in these States. Health is a State subject. Why did not Congress and its stalwarts apply their combined wisdom in controlling the pandemic in these States? If they had showcased their acumen, then people would have believed this article. The fact is, most countries have been found wanting in handling the pandemic. India is no exception, more so with its unlimited population and limited resources and abysmal health infrastructure. The fate would have been the same irrespective of who is in power. Let us see whether the opposition uses this golden opportunity to deny Modi a third term in 2024!

  293. Indian Government cannot just escape giving all the blames to State governments. What were they doing , why they didn’t sent any guidelines to the States on seeing they are flouting the precautionary measures.
    This government always have the big mouth, false hopes and zero execution policy for every decision they made in their tenure.
    PM is only egoistic and want to make an image during this crisis among the world leaders, without taking any kind of preparedness for the second wave. How could he allowed political rallies, state elections, kumbh mela , punya snan, municipal elections.
    He is just like the great Ashoka who himself was the reason for so many deaths …….Can PM ever forget what a great massacre he created ???

  294. And whom do you suggest? rg, mamata,stalin , pinarayi or a combination of all.choose and suit yourself.as far as modi is concerned we are all convinced about his intentions.he is not super human to control the most indcplned lot and a media out and out to demoralise him .sometimes one wonders why he should waste his energy for this thankless lot. .damned if he does damned if he doesnt.

  295. Modi showed his supermacy by bringing kumb forwarded by an year, a useless move that too added blessing in disguise.. Right now, find ways to curb the covid.. Later, we will see which sector needs to be given utmost importance.

  296. The Print has a history of finding fault with one political party repeatedly. This is not journalism. If people do not obey rules of conduct by not covering their nose, do not maintain hygenic practices,,when contact reading his not done at local level, don’t expect the government to micromanage the pandemic.

  297. Such are the state of affairs that even if somebody sneezes its Modi’s fault. No onus on the state governments who are glaringly at fault here, no accounting for the citizens who absolutely flouted the rules and advice by gathering together at markets and social gatherings without following any precautions or of the fact that this virus has confused even the most seasoned doctors who don’t know how to handle it let alone predict its many waves. When countries like Italy and Spain saw a collapse of their medical systems then nobody blamed their government. The virus is a common enemy, not people who are trying to fight it. How then, prey tell us, this article holds just one man responsible? This is a time to come together and show solidarity instead of chasing personal political agendas.

  298. I propose that the new central vista under construction should be treated as a memorial to all those who died during Demonitisation struggling to encash banned currency notes, loss of jobs, due to lock down in March 20 and the consequent effects and Corona since 2020. This should be erected like India gate ,a war memorial, as a reflection of Modi’s arrogant and inhuman approach to the problems of Indian citizens.

  299. Shall we hand over the reins of the government to the most intelligent visionary of the century, Rahul Gandhi?

  300. It’s appears that you have a personal grudge against the PM. No wonder you have forgotten whatever he has done till date and are using an unprecedented crisis, which even the most wealthiest and developed countries could not handle, to tarnish the PM’s image. Sad really, focus your energies on something useful that will motivate Indians to tide over this crisis instead of ranting about the PM’s abilities and the biggest joke of your article – the UPA. This is not the time for such kind of jokes please!

  301. Left and Congress and modi haters writing is clearly visible.
    This guy has no substance and the print is simply anti modi for nothing.
    He runs country with confidence and authority is a problem.
    He wins elections is a problem .
    Rahul Gandhi does nothing but modi bashing everyday by barrowed tweets and you guys give 100 marks for all the fart.
    God save India.

  302. So, what is the author of this article trying to convey? Shall we replace Modi with Rahul Gandhi, the most talented visionary of the century, or Kejriwal, who can spend 100 crores on Covid care and 1000 crores for publicity. For a country of 130 crores population with rudimentary health system (courtesy of previous regimes of 70 years ), Modi is doing a remarkable job and the majority of wise people are satisfied with his working. Don’t publish just disgusting, self defeating articles and make us mad.

  303. Just imagine if Pappu was leading the nation where we would have been.. The opposition refused to take vaccine calling it BJP Vaccine. Now all are Lining up. we are atleast finding solutions. No one listens to our PM. The day Indians become disciplined all will fall in place. If all states had forgotten all their political differences and come together we would ruled the world

  304. The writer clearly seems to have a personal issue with the PM. Why single out only the PM? Yes, there are areas where probably his administration could have done better, but to put the complete onus on him smirks of a targeted campaign, which is really not required at this time. This is an unprecedented crisis and nobody has a magic wand to be fully prepared to face it. Even the so called developed and wealthiest countries like the USA was caught like a cat on a hot tin roof during their first wave and worser things had happened there. It’s a concerted national and international media effort to malign the Indian PM who tirelessly worked towards the welfare of the nation through myriad of schemes which probably the writer has conveniently forgotten! I don’t even understand how few of the Western countries consider themselves qualified to speak about India’s current state when despite being developed and less populated countries, they themselves were absolute failures against the same virus. Atleast as Indians, we should show solidarity with our current leadership instead of ranting endlessly about its failures. And talking about UPA, are they even worth mentioning? Definitely not in my view. Sorry Mr Writer, please shift the focus of your articles to something more useful

  305. Paid news.
    The western world has lost control over Indian politics and are hence resorting to every apossible antics to get control through Sonia.

  306. All of us, including people of India, medical fraternity, health care systems, leaders, opposition every one, every one are taken aback by this onslaught by the viral tsunami. What is to be criticized is Governments allowing mass gatherings like Kumbh, malls, cinemas, elections etc. Every one to be blamed for this, yes including PM. Opposition has proved itself to be most irresponsible by indulging in blame game. The situation is awful from all quarters.

  307. This guy has been growing his beard and hair and is looking like a Sadhu, he should retire from politics and go to the Himalayas and meditate, if he continue to rule India will become a pauper state. Or will end up as Adani Ambani enterprises.

  308. Let us accept No Government did anything exceptional for health care of Indian Citizens, was never a priority as we have lot of population. But much better was expected from this government atleast.

    Unfortunately Indians have only got arrogance, decisions & fake victories.

  309. Why should we pay taxes, when govt. cannot provide basic healthcarece and leave us to die on roads.
    Yes our money is being used for payng salaries of Bureacats, politicians, Niti Aayog members,who cannot make a feasible plan.we need to overhaul the democratic system. Wake up or die.

  310. Paid news. The western world has lost control over Indian politics and are hence resorting to every apossible antics to get control through Sonia.

  311. Paid news. The western world has lost control over Indian politics and are hence resorting to every apossible antics to get control through Sonia

  312. It is surprising such incohrent rant is being published by a respected news portal at the time of a national crisis. At best the article is the product of a disorganised mind and at worse it is a paid article by a political party. Ever since the second wave of pandemic hit homes of the rich and privileged social media space is abuzz with demand of prime minister must resign, plea of lack of oxygen, essential medicine, and hospital bed. Yet, if anyone had ever walked by our premier hospitals in Delhi, one could see patients from distant towns are camping outside on the pavement, be it biting cold or blazing heat, in the hope of seeing a doctor, getting a bed and getting their loved ones treated. No one thought of increasing bed, increasing hospitals, and making lives of people who cannot afford a hotel room in south Delhi more comfortable. Because well connected would either fly abroad or get a bed using their connection. Seventy years of apathy to create health infrastructure is hitting us now when we cannot fly abroad, we see on TV and Twitter people are literally choking to death because of shortage of oxygen and many do not even find a crematorium spot let alone a hospital bed. Who is to blame? Certainly the ones who are ruling. The prime accused being the prime minister. Most certainly the current administration made mistakes. But those who rant repeatedly about election rallies forget that opposition parties did not not stop their rally in anticipation of a pandemic. Yes Kumbh mela organisation was not correct, neither was assembly when a politician’s father passed away in an opposition ruled state, or assembly of farmers to protest farm laws. Add to this, a liberal media darling chief minister wanted to parade dead bodies of five people shot by para military forces when they tried to capture polling booth. All those who are complaining every move of government were silent when primary education was in a mess, when primary healthcare was non existent, when big hospitals, unaffordable by general public, catered to foreign patients in the name of medical tourism. Some times I wonder given the ramshackle moth eatern system handed over by previous government, how did Modi manage to survive this six years? Any place one touched, was rotten. The whole core was rotten. Be it healthcare, bet it military, be police force, be it judiciary. All we have is a bunch of people who are conscious of their rights, unwilling to do any work, let alone admit whatever they did for past sevent years did not work. So Modi must not resign. Go such your thumb.

  313. Yes the central should have minimum knowledge before exporting free vaccine where we are struggling to get vaccination,For modi bakth I need to ask that who should be in play role while expecting a second wave while sitting in central,some they blame state wise governament, who does not even have full play labs in states,At some point they only took credit for end card for Covid-19 by BJP, they utterly fail atleast in allocation of oxygen from near by MFG units to states, I am also some point felt great for name and fame for modi,but the information of second wave should definately assume by central,I definately make sure for water quantity I carry to fulfill my requirement aftern the pee than I think for Xyz,

  314. When you have a person like Ashutosh Bhardwaj writing such articles your paper is bound to be doomed. Look where NDTV is today? Down in the dumps? Blaming Modi for everything is what is expected for the Lutyens gang of which you are a part.

  315. Talk like a learned person. What Cong in their 70 years rule. No correlation between leadership and pandemic. This pandemic is only in India created by vested interests who they don’t want to India to grow. Can definitely say it is a global conspiracy. Strongly believe that radical Muslims could be the root cause for this epidemic. This is my thought process.

  316. UNFAIR
    Unfair to blame 1 person always. If something good happens you don’t want give him credit but when something goes wrong 1 person is blamed always. Dont know if this article is on behalf of congress or any other opposition. Anyways please also do mention what have you contributed to nation building and the pandemic before criticising leaders, ofcourse other than writing articles.

  317. Why do you keep ranting eager than giving constructive solutions? Please don’t make this anti-government just because there’s Modi. I can’t imagine how UPA could have even got.closer to handling this situation. For a nation with a billion dynamic people, the last 12 months’ COVID numbers speak for themselves. If not for good crisis management, the numbers would have been way higher

  318. It seems editor has no news expect doing blame game. Even the SC is interfering in each and every work of a of the executive. In my opinion SC should keep silent, if anything wrong from state or central government file PIL and take action. But don’t demoralize govt.

  319. PM and the top doctors have been begging the countrymen to take covid appropriate measures. But people will not listen. Now that we have brought this crisis, we want to blame PM. God is kind that in this crisis Modi is PM. Can’t imagin the situation if UPA was in power in these circumstances.

  320. The Print would get indigestion the day it refrains from Modi bashing.
    Have you heard the story Wolf Wolf.
    That is how much the public trust The Print.
    But you should be thanked. You have also contributed in Modi becoming what he is today. A strong leader who focuses on problem solving.

  321. Exactly. Mody & his chela Yogi ran behind winning bengal and UP panchayat election at the cost of human life.
    It seems mody & Yogi have expired, it is theirs BHOOTS who are seen on tv

  322. A sick motivated and one sided view…one cant expect anything else from The Print…

    Please check on what’s happening in your backyard …what the govts in Maharashtra, Delhi,Kerala, WB, Rajasthan were doing wrt to the cases there

  323. Modi is currently the only leader mature enough to handle this emergency. Indians who are cash rich want to still enjoy going to malls, bars, restaurants, theatres etc when the world is fighting the pandemic. We Indians did not support the fight and are now paying the price. Don’t blame anybody but blame yourselves.

  324. Author is oblivious to the fact that public health is a state subject & it’s the failure of state governments & their leadership, more starkly, Maharashtra & Delhi CM’s that has created this Mess.

  325. Electing uneducated leaders for highly educated population, are you joking ,Since last one year Mr Modi has been educating people not to move move out without mask, Has he pulled them out of their Homes to attend election rallies,
    What about educated Mumbai and Delhi crowd ,why they are suffering the most

    Many of my family members are sick with Corona infection Is Mr Modi Responsible for that
    We as people of this country never follow rules because our constitution has given us too much of Liberty and consequences are what we are facing today

  326. Stop criticizing modi. Please ask local governance. The print my ass to you and your stupid Articles

  327. It’s a request to Print… please do not entertain these kind of writers.. Then u will have no difference with other Masala blogs..

  328. An unfortunate writeup that does not show any understanding. Let us ask what these writers and media personnel contributed? Medicines, hospital beds, oxygen cylinders, respirators??? Nothing except words witout any research or basis. Did the media show how the health infrastructure was placed ?

  329. At the drop of the hay, we love become the judge, jury and executioner. When anything goes wrong, first find a person to blame. The person we don’t like is the preferred choice to put the blame entirely. The present crisis is because of collective failure of Govt. And irresponsible public behaviour. The govt. includes Centre Govt. and State Govts. together. When public health is a state subkect, putting entire blame on Modi shows how biased the author his.

  330. Article is completely biased and devoid of facts. First of all I want to ask author that did he predict that corona virus will be mutated and mutated version will be supspreader?
    European countries are facing second and third wave of the virus. Did these countries go for Kumbh Mela or any election rally?
    Author should inform audience. Is this article in lieu of …..

    Some patients are dying, which is extremely unfortunate and painful. But do we know that they were following covid compatible behaviour (SMS) sanitation,mask and social distancing.
    Please stop spewing venom against leader who cares for this country’s citizens above everything else. If you continue venom spewing , God will punish you.
    Dr. Ashwin I Mehta

  331. VM: whom are you calling pappuand his Italian mother.? This is the arrogance that brought the country to this stage and fanatics like you who banged utensils and lighted candles when migrant workers were walking miles and miles.shame on you.

  332. PM Modi s anti corruption actions are the major irritants for supporters of post independent India dynastic leaders…The Print among them. Don t blame Modi but corrupt politicians of states, public servants and defiant, ignorant public. Forget Pappu and his clan ….. No chance for them.

  333. Only an idiot will try to defend the BJP Government at this point. They did everything against what should be considered as democratic.
    They took away the press freedom and forced them not to question away the government.
    Like said in the above article Centralisation is at its peak only when such hasty decisions comes into effect and cause pure suffering to an ordinary citizen and especially to people living below the poverty line.

  334. Modi is the best bet we have. Had it been for someone else, we would not have had such a solid and unstinted focus on fighting the crisis at hand. Your article is highly biased and myopic.

  335. Only an idiot will try to defend the BJP Government at this point. They did everything against what should be considered as democratic.
    They took away the press freedom and forced them not to question away the government.
    Like said in the above article Centralisation is at its peak only when such hasty decisions comes into effect and cause pure suffering to an ordinary citizen and especially to people living below the poverty line.

  336. Thanks Mr. Editor for showing us the real Picture. Otherwise I felt all the media in our country is suppressed and refrain talking truth. The submissive media is visible to all but freedom of speech has been snatched from all of us. For last one year since Corona entered our country, we started feeling that reality is way far from what’s being shown. Sushant’s case and then narcotics issue – all just created hype with zero result. Initially we felt as if our country is changing. Power and politics will not suppress the truth this time. But we were wrong. Our honourable Prime Minister is very much aware that this country lacks leaders and due to lack of choice, no one can point out even if he is not right. We are helpless inspite of knowing the failure points of current govt. So people will continue to die, poor will continue to suffer and our government will continue to play the blame game on this suppressed media channels. We were , we are and we will be hopeless and hapless as always.

  337. This author is nothing but a blind followers of criminal Commies, and Dynasties. These kind of guys are deaf, dumb and blind for the development happened. They do not want India to become self relaint and becomes strong, these guys are paid by proxies, and these guys staying in Urban and spread hate against strong India. Also people should stop reading this Print App, they work with an agenda to defame India and strong Indian leadership.
    Is he blind to what happened to USA, UK, ITALY, BRAZIL, FRANCE even CHINA, who always give fake and false news world. Shame on this writer.

  338. I feel we all shud come together , especially the ones who are rich , the government, and work towards solving this crisis. At the same time to acknowledge the truth about what did go well , where did we and the govt failed. We need to learn from mistakes. Its not religion, the truth will set us free , the truth will provide a way and help our nation to live.

  339. It is sad to see the bhakts blindly springing to the defence of Modi’s government. Old habits die hard. If they say that this is usual Modi bashing, then it can also be said that this is usual and blind support. We will not thrive as a country until we as citizens are able to detect crap in our polity, institutions and in the actions of our elected governments, be they right, left or centre.

  340. Even with a lot of warning states did nothing which includes BJP and non BJP states
    We all aways find methods to blame others
    Look at Mumbai they waited it the water flew over the head and then panicked same with the other states may it be Delhi or Bangalore

  341. Health System is paralysed by Congress in last 70 years and now blaming Modi is not Solution.
    I will always support Modi.He told people to use mask and maintain social distance. Modi is a great leader and will be always my favourite PM candidate.

  342. Stupid fellow who doesnt understand the problems of of India or India faces a). Large population everything has to be in large scale.b) Poverty where people struggling will they buy a mask or take next meal c.) Poor discipline and unhygenic habits d) Idiotic bravado e) Last but not least overhyping media which sensationalizes the problems f) These type of authors who for 100 dollar bill will lick western ass.

  343. It is always easy from the comfort of your arm chair and since you got hold of a pen you can blabber anything.if you cannot provide solutions bloody well shut up.Who has done better than what has been done.Tell me which politician has not conducted election rallies in the poll bound states.now the event is over you jokers come out with blame games.Wait for one more month you will find the situation turning for good.then you fools will find spme thing else to crib.

  344. Why should we blame Modiji. Its our fault. Every one should follow guidelines. But in our biggest democratic country everyone shows others mistakes and they will get happiness. I ask this author tell with your heart, whether U helped any one or U have helped any dead one to the samshanghat. Having a pen in hand and blaming somebody is easy sir. If U want to really help the needy with UR pen arrange and collect funds and help needy like Sonisood. Don’t blame any governments. All this juncture all are doing well. Joh Jeegha wohi sikander. If u want to change the state or country just elect as a sikander and U will know the problems. JAI Hind.

  345. Whom to blame depends on which side you are. When we are unable to follow a simple protocol of wearing mask we have to face the disaster. People asking for hospitals, oxygen and other infrastructures which hadn’t been developed as per requirements in last 7 decades. Everyone is free to criticize as this is the easiest thing one can do and such thing attract the attention.

  346. I would have appreciated this article if so called ‘congress dynasty’ was not praised. Frankly, I do agree with some of the things called out here like the way current government has handled Covid crisis.
    But that is no reason to praise congress regime and do a comparison. I think none of the existing parties qualify to be a ruling party and I guess it is high time now to have effective NOTA system in country.
    I wonder how such articles get published, may be this is called godi media.

  347. One thing I am noticing for every gain or loss we praise/ criticise respective ministers , departments etc. ie except ourselves. My question is if common are good enough how they can do such works.
    Time came to EVALUATE OURSELVES.

  348. I would have appreciated this article if so called ‘congress dynasty’ was not praised. Frankly, I do agree with some of the things called out here like the way current government has handled Covid crisis.
    But that is no reason to praise congress regime and do a comparison. I think none of the existing parties qualify to be a ruling party and I guess it is high time now to have effective NOTA system in country.

  349. The present Govt. Doesn’t have any shame left. They are continuing their rallies and talking only about elections such a shameful act. No humanity at all. People are dying after everything is being postponed but the Govt. Election is not getting postponed and they are only the one’s spreading virus. They want the people should die. The donation funds they r using in election. It is so disheartening to see such a shameful act by the Govt.

  350. Again same crap from #ThePrint 😅😅… Modi modi modi.. Everyday same thing with different title… Ur publication should be name #TheModi 😅😅😅

  351. you are talking about kumbh why don’t you talk about ramzam and tabliqui jamaat 🤔🙄😡😒………..i am warning you don’t mess with hindus

  352. Yes…. Let’s change the prime minister…. who do you propose?

    Name 1 leader in the entire country who u propose should be made prime minister!

    Name 1 !

  353. What about the past 60 years where nothing was done to build health infrastructures.Modi has atleast tried to make changes.I am a Cghs (central govt health scheme )patient.The changes that happened after modi took over was immense.You cant expect a over populated country to build infrastructures in 7years.Instead to crying out cant you people help out.The opposition also just keeps crying.Come out & assist the people.Dont make hay when sunshines in this matter.

  354. The print should focus on “How to Improve covid situation in India ” rather than covid Politics …..Pls don’t stoop so low…

  355. If we look at the situation closely the situation is more grave in non BJP ruled states.
    To put everything on Moti would be an over simplification. Our CMs are equally responsible.

  356. Ohh ! Then why not congress focused on health issue from 1947 to 2013 .You have to blame modi and only modi.Previous year state government told that corona control should be state responsibility .Now when state government failed ,you trying to blame modi.Your agenda against modi will not be get success.

  357. “The Print” is basically a backyard of congress party. Others include Rajesh Serdesai,Tapar,Guha,Barks etc. Manmohan who was moun when PM is now giving instructions to Govt. One thing is clear.Opposition, instead of helping Government and people, it is using this pandamic as their Astra to week Modi and his government.

  358. Please, please don’t criticise The Healthcare System. IT IS ALL INHERITED. Hopefully, the pandemic will heal the ones who need healing. Amen.

  359. Please, please don’t criticise the Healthcare System. IT IS ALL INHERITED. Hopefully the pandemic will heal the ones who need healing.

  360. What Pappu and his Grandparents done for the infrastructure of health and security of us in 65 yrs.

  361. You need victory to become a leader to decide on health policy. A good example is this author. He isn’t victorious to become a leader. Hence he can only write blogs but can’t decide on health policy of any state or country. Victory is a prerequisite here.

  362. India was able to meet covid wave -1 valiantly under the leadership of Modi. It is going to repeat the performance in Wave -2 also although Costs and causalities are very heavy to distressed people and the nation. It is not a time to sing false melodies of greatness of departed dynasty. यह टूटे फूटे हाथ आज़माये हुये है । These broken Hands are too much familiar.

  363. Oye

    Notebandi se lekar aage Nas bandi tak…jo hua aur jo hoga…Modiji ko vote dekar…usi ke liye bheja hai…

    Modiji ko PM ke kursi ki zarurat nahi…..humein hamarein PM ki kursi ke liye Modiji ki zarurat hai….

    Aur waise bhi tumharein journalism ke followers woh hai jinhein apna medieval agenda poora karna hai at the cost of Hindus of this nation…

    Print can continue wasting its time blaming Modiji for incompetancy of secular leaders and dal badlu leaders riding on father’s legacy…

  364. What more can be expected from you and The Print. I recall lines the journalist and writters like you who practically can not do any thing and can not understand the practical realities of life perticularly of size of 1. 3 billions and can only write in flowery english… Just bookesh worms… Keep writting the crape

  365. And UPA corruption, amassing of wealth in to crores of Rs. Coal scam, telecom scam, lame PM. Shameless preachers PC, Sibbal and daily gyan guru A M Singhvi. We Indians wanted to teach lessons to these arrogant people. We taught them. Now they are not the replacement, Modi did not perform up to expectations. But Sorry, UPA is rightly in to dust bin.

  366. Very well written article, if these foolish andhbakts can find all sort of minus in previous PM then of course the present PM is rightfully responsible for today’s situation. Why u andhbakts only project pappu don’t you find any other person from 1.25 crore population.

    This is democracy and not presidency where u choose PM and just think that there’s only only person who is more intelligent then the whole population. Whereas the present PM IQ is very poor like the clouds hiding radar, and present health crises, PM is not of certain states, if certain states are dying then it’s failure of the PM who is chosen for country’s welfare not few states. Indian citizens please stop being Coward and start slapping right on face of any andhbakt who dares to speak and cow us down to defend his useless leader. Do it or else it’s not long time we meet in heaven soon.

    • First of all to me you are some irrational and uneducated journalist. Reasons below.
      A) Chinese people liberation army killed so many innocent life during first wave of covid. None in the world bother to content that. Compare that with Indian during second wave. Yes my fellow Indians young and old both dying and indeed govt failure but even finest of the havard or Oxford like Manmohan singh would have been helpless.
      B) Medical infra for 1.3 Billion people when private players are daily coming in market from pharma to multispeciality hospital. Do govt even have that kind of funds for few million people
      Compare to 1.3 billion. Go and study Economics first your leg will be shaken.
      C) America lost 640 k lives so far inspire of being world’s best healthcare system.
      D) There were 2 option for modi govt One put his image or put the life of Indian on stake. Govt have taken help from poorest nation like Bhutan. So that proves Modi image is not ahead of life of his fellow countrymen.
      E) State govt did rampant corruption in allocating beds to oxygen. Wow this is purely modi fault. Unable to control State n their govt. I agree that govt have allowed their complacent to.come.in play after first wave. But Bodies are piling up in State like Delhi, and UP. where there were no Election , No mela , No Rallies.
      F) I am not facist or right wing but country like India can’t afford Medical ahead of Defense. Public infra and Jobs. Which means we would see loss of.life of nearly 1 Million even if govt hide the figure in worst case 2.4 Million. But u still need to feed another 1.3 Billion. Think through Brain.

  367. An utterly biased article as usual….not a surprise, coming from the media with an open Anti Modi agenda.

  368. The writer forgot how mva govt having Congress in it collects Rs1000 crores/month from maharashtra in covid times.maharshtra situations reminds voters about consequences of electing a central govt led by pappu.

  369. Mr Ashutosh & Mr Shekhar Kutta, I don’t ascribe to your views simply because my I’m immune to the greasing of palms by the Anti-national forces; whereas you Fake Journalist like you have made a business out of it..Essentially journalists working with newspapers such as Print, Wire, S(quint) etc are Pimps working on behalf of Foreign Forces Inimical to the very existence of INDIAN NATION..

  370. Rahul or anyone of his family will be the best leader to satisfy the business of The Print

  371. This type of articles are easy to write. It’s a blame game. What such journalists have done for the country? They have encash the tragedy of Indian people. They have nothing to do for the people but to criticise everyone who don’t respect the journalist. They are worse than politicians. They help enemies of Indian.

  372. MNREGA by UPA was a conduit to route Money and it is highly misrepresented and misleading article.
    The fellow who has written is an opportunist who seeks to make a propaganda during this crucial time by eulogising dynastic rule which has failed. Millions such misleading articles will continue to remain misleading.

  373. Wow, you have surely changed your tune. I watch your videos regularly and till 10 days ago you were full of praise for the present govt..
    Rats leave the sinking ship, I gather.
    Anyways, can you now not be a defeatist and put some good and positive articles, solutions,etc. As it is news is very depressing and scary these days.

  374. surprisingly writer present only one side view , but inept what to do ,also what is already done in field of vaccination .such a herucuelan task at hand of government ,critisising is a soft target,only attracts detractors.we do not agree with writer view , problem is their ,but all need to put heads together yo solve problem,government is not alone responsible

    • Any ones family members death during this period? Asked the people who loses loved one. No one realize what pain we are facing if someone from family die due to covid19. Government do nothing but hospitals just making money

  375. surprisingly writer present only one side view , but inept what to do ,also what is already done in field of vaccination .such a herucuelan task at hand of government ,critisising is a soft target,only attracts detractors.we do not agree with writer view , problem is their ,but all need to put heads together yo solve problem,government is not alone responsible

  376. So far Covid story has two parts — First wave that originated say in January 2020 and for second wave it can be stated that it originated and started spreading March 2021. India under the leadership of Modi faced first wave valiantly in spite of lack of world class medical facilities and . If some one non-biased person compares the performance of India with advance counties like USA, Russia , Italy ( Holy nation for pro-Congress journalists ) , U.k. Brazile etc , Indian performance under the leadership of Modi had been at par , if not better ,, with those countries. Even than Modi remains a Flogging -horse for defective left inclined and pro dynasty journalists ) .
    The fight against more deadly second wave is going on and in spite off shortage of arsenal to face it ,, like sudden surge in demand for oxygen cylinders in second wave . But pro- dynasty journalists a have sharpened their attack on Modi at a time when battle is still going on. Some of left inclined brains are going Gaga over the photos of distressed individuals and families who may have lost their near and dear ones and take this photo ops a stepping stone to” shoot at sight “ on Modi. But they forget to understand that common people of India are also watching the efforts being put out by both parties—Govt machinery and modi to mitigate distress and activities by Modi -detractors to deflect attention of the government from mitigating their pain. Don t forget people know how and when to respond . As of today Indian are fighting the dreaded virus , that will be ultimately, be tamed. EVERY INDIAN HAS BE A PART OF FIGHT , NOT A JOKER WHO IS FOUND LAUGHING AT FUNERALS.

  377. It’s all in our Hand, Maintaining social distance, wearing mask, Regular hand washing &sanitizing
    What Modiji can do
    Even today in the markets 6am to 10 am above mentioned not following How we can cut the chain ???

  378. Obvious biased agenda. Auhor is clearly not aware of the reality of the situation and what are the responsibilities of different levels of governments like central, state, district, city/village. Pathetic attempt to make many disjointed points look like they are connected.

  379. What a waste of time! Obvious biased agenda. Auhor is clearly not aware of the reality of the situation and what are the responsibilities of different levels of governments like central, state, district, city/village. Pathetic attempt to make many disjointed points look like they are connected.

  380. Just pointing one person ,Modi is the classic case of some people. Health isn’t a state subject…?
    If Modi is responsible then so is all the CMs..?
    All the opposition parties who just few months ago promoting the fake farmer protest and thus helping spreading virus.
    Regarding elections , is all parties are in agreement for President rule and postponing of election…?

    Modi has also faulted , by not focusing on rapid vaccine drive and ramping up the production.

    • So why does every bjp member, minister can’t speak for 2 min without giving credit to their PM for every damn thing???

  381. There is a very famous saying from a prominent leader of yesteryear’s, don’t ask what the country has done to you, ask what you have done to the country.Right from the time our PM has taken his seat till date he has not availed a single day off,be it the week day or the week end. Which living being on this Earth is working so tirelessly show me only creature. Also there have been several natural calamities and wars which our country has faught and we have seen how this 3rd rate Congress has led the country in crisis. You,the author of this article if you have any sense of patriotism left within you,come up with the solutions for the problems faced by the country and not to depict the short comings of the Government. Moreover the second wave which has hit the country in the last 2 weeks may be the handiwork of the various Pharma,Drug and Arms lobby who do not want India to succeed in the Global Arena,and trying to fish in troubled waters. Indians are very resilient and we will overcome this grave situation. Our PM is God sent and he will handle this situation with ease don’t worry gentleman. It would be wise for you to look within rather than blaming the system.

  382. It is strange that even for change behaviour by people by let loosing the guard of Covid appropriate behaviour as per mha guidelines also Modi is responsible. For giving more autonomy to states to deal with Covid situation in respective states after their repeated requests Modi is responsible. States not taking actions on their own even after having autonomy to deal at local levels Modi is responsible. This type of selective targeting is understood to be come out of desperation as all such folks think that their voice whether appropriate or not is not being listened by the government as was the case in previous governments. Why not to ask and get answers from respective states for not taking actions on their own? If one is thinking of co-operative federalism and then when time comes to act, points figures at other to hide their inability to deal with the situation is not correct. Provide 360° view.

  383. Modi is the finest leader India ever had – with a clear vision , decisive and the ability to work hard.
    The left almost sinking to oblivion keeps looking at opportunities to put him down – demonitisation, Kashmir, CAA, Chinese skirmish, Farm Bills, Pandemic. Every time he has emerged stronger. He has the blessings and good wishes of millions of Indians.

  384. The article is only Madi biasing or BJP biasing. Not at all acceptable. Yes the second wave of Pendamic struck us badly But India is a Federal system of governance. The states manages it’s affairs, and the Centre is looking after only over all governance. Centre cannot interfere in the affairs of States, if so it will become interference in federal system. Regarding election, yes this could have been avoided by putting these states under President rule then how long. Again the same man will say Modi tore off the Constitution. There needs cooperation from the public also. 60 percent of the population still do not wear mask or do not wear properly, do not keep distance, if they find 3 ft gap run into it and fill it, without bothering for anything or others. Can Modi our PM should be blamed for this. Yes Kumbamela elections etc could have been avoided,. What was happening in Kerala even before election announcement?. Gold, Solar et etc corruption cases and demonstrations. The Govt there was taking refuge under all these for corrupt practices. So please not Modi the entire Nation and Nationalists are responsible for the situation. We can not produce requirements over night. We are only a developing Country. Let us jointly fight the crisis, rather than playing blame games and let the Almighty protect us.

    • If Modi wants to take the credit for the vaccines produced by the scientists, he should equally take the blame for the horrendous handling of the pandemic. At the very least the madness of Kumbh and election rallies is totally on him. The bizarre lack of preparedness in this second wave despite more than an year of preparation time is mostly on him too.

      And what do you mean by “Yes Kumbamela elections etc could have been avoided”? This was Hindu appeasement and the greed to win at all costs at its absolute worst. The madness of lakhs assembled together making a joke of the so-called covid fight. Even the organizers openly admitting that there is no way to implement covid guidelines due to the numbers. Look at even how Haj was handled. They allowed only 10 thousand folks rather than 1 crore. That is how they avoided any tragedy. No one in the world has been as crazy as the leadership in India.

  385. Utter nonsense. Modibashing is the hobby of print, scroll, Hindu, ndtv etc. Stop these articles.

  386. The solution is simple and is in our hands . Follow the protocol on mask hygiene and distance .Get yourself vaccinated as and when available . Simple.
    I am 73 plus . Both of us living on our own with out out side assistance for past one year. Followed the above precautions. No problem .

  387. Instead of blaming the govt and modi now, these so Called educated class of writers, journalists, activists should have spent time with the citizens educating them and scaring them of second wave and made the situation better .12 months were there for these people also.what did they do? Waiting for this time to happen? Writing for naxals ?? And killing their time? Shame on you

  388. It is an intellectual challenge to to find someone who will not necessarily win but still focus on health.
    For the first time we have had someone who thought that shitting in the open needed to be addressed and it was done after a victory.
    All the leaders before him were very much focused on health but never thought of what they did every morning with with the exception of the constipated jack asses.
    Unfortunately we have a growing breed of cut-paste artists proliferating in the media, social, print and electronic

  389. Congratulations “The Print” Very long artical on pandemic and successfully creating negative image of government atleast at your office. Completely hopless writing from start of Apr-21. People just looking the logo of the Print understand the content of artical.

  390. When Corona increasing…modi responsible…when Corona decreasing then uddhav, pinarayi,kejriwal great…utter biased reporting….people did not wear mask…so it’s a community spread…such leftist morons are now finding time to do politics and get paycheque from their Boss China…

  391. Supreme court should Ban modi govt….this govt only thinks and celebrate their election rally and fucking victory….and the PPL whom we called andh bhakt,they can’t even see the condition of our country…dead body of innocents everywhere…but they still think about a new parliament and election winning process…we want this govt should Ban forever

  392. apart from a leader, every individual has a right and above all a duty to take care of one’s own health. going out without mask, going to weddings, attending kumbha melas etc. etc. etc. etc. is NO DUTY to oneself – that too repeated warnings. no leader NOT EVEN GOD can help a country where citizrens do not bother about their own health. it is SICKENING to see people like you indulging in modi bashing at every opportunity.

  393. Kerala is the best state in India with proper planning in every aspect. Now every state is facing lack of beds, medicines, oxygen and vaccines except Kerala which foresightedly procured the necessary things in advance with proper planning. Further, it is the state with goods sanitation and healthcare. Though I am not from Kerala, I observed these positive aspects during my visits there.

  394. PM very much focus on health of the citizens and in return people make PM victories. This is the plain truth. Accept it or reject it. Choice is yours.

  395. If Shri Narendra Modi is as incompetent as the author states, what does it say about the competence of the opposition (politicians, media, activists, etc) who have not been able to unseat him since 2002, and not for the lack of trying.

  396. Will again go and vote modi .Meanwhile pappu can make a machine to produce vaccine or can also become a farmer.I thank god pappu is not the pm .A person who can’t administer his own constituency and face tough situations is not fit to be prime minister.Modi came up from scratch made a place for himself without any crutches of dynasty he has seen it all .He knows his profession well even today you people are incapable of winning election against him.This articles just show your frustration stemming from your impotence in dislodging him.Meanwhile you can continue calling people andhbhakts or whatever to feel good about yourself.

  397. Your news editions are always purverted crappy and biased only with an intention to denigrade without any alternate solution or constructive solutions. Print with the previlege to have online media coverage through this media supports and propagates only cynical views without verifying facts and ground-level initiatives. I can say emphatically there cannot any leader worth mentioning other than Modi although the age is not with him for at least another 25 years.

  398. This pathetic journalist should ask his masters why his congress leaders didn’t build enough hospitals in 60 years. They were busy giving Bharat Ratna to themselves

  399. This chamcha should ask his masters why his congress leaders didn’t build enough hospitals in 60 years. They were busy giving Bharat Ratna to themselves

  400. India now needs a strong leader like Pappu,
    Or Uddav miyan….or big thief sharad powar or Chidambaram …

  401. Arrey saale taklu china kuthha gupta , jab lock down lagaya thu bola sabko road pe laaya, jab vaccine aaya thu saala bola ki uthne jaldi kaisa aaya vaccine aur thera maalik Pappu bola vaccine math lo kaam nahi karenge, ab thum dono saale bol rahe ho vaccine nahi hai.arrey tum kush thi jaanthe nahi tumhara asli baap kon hai aaye modi ji ko taane dene

  402. And who is that leader? Pappu and his Italian mother!!!
    Modi cannot be held responsible alone- what are state governments including of congress and other parties doing? Is Modi responsible for the state of affairs in Maharashtra and Kerala too?
    Such targeted character assassination is by people in the pay rolls of organisations inimical to India.

    • True, noone is questioning MH and Ker because Modi did not visit there, thsi article is open partiality and the guy has to reply…..else don’t write to Support News Media….

    • My opinion is all bhakthas r praising PM of INDIA no issues but in reality this article speaks TRUTH no one can have damn GUTS to give any SOLUTION but praising PM. Scolding Rahul n Sonia .think act behave like humans. Our PM must accountability to his ALL PEOPLE rather than CRONY CAPITALISTS. OXYGEN IS HANDLED BY EMPOWERED GROUP BY CENTRAL GOVT THEY WILL DECIDE HOW MUCH STATE TO SUPPLY CHECK? THIS NOT WHATSAPP GROUP INFO WE’RE LIVING VERY WORST SITUATION KINDLY UNDERSTAND

    • You IT cell guys can continue to scream pappu etc all you want. The fact is that it’s Rahul Gandhi, Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi who have been calling attention continuously since early last year, towards the threat posed by COVID-19 to the country.

      As usual, Modi has first been derisive, but eventually has been forced to implement their suggestions, because they make sense. The utter incompetence of Modi is now on full display throughout the country, in the form of this enormous tragedy. You guys are ofcourse paid to continue to sing his praises even as people are suffering and dying all across.

    • True only Modiji can’t be held responsible for a natural disaster. What about the past party who got 60 yers to do something.And what they did was to build huge stadiums during Commonwealth games. And why no reply is there. Instead they should have built big hospitals. You don’t wait for the last moment.It is the duty of State governments also. For 60 years it was any trees. But instead jungles were cut. Animals were killed. Remember nature treats all equal and gives no time.

    • Just Modiji can’t be responsible for the natural disaster. Well what were the past government doing .They got 60 years to build hospitals even in remote villages. But they built stadiums for Common wealth games. Mercilessly trees were cut, animals killed. Remember Avni.Today you cry for oxygen. It is the good will of Modiji that the world stands with you. The ones who shout the most should peep into the indisciplined individuals.

    • Very rightly said. Health is state subject, what were all the state govts doing ,why did they not take proactive action.

    • What Do you suggest? A guy ho has been growing his beard and hair trying to be a Sadhu will save India? What qualifications does the new look Sadhu pm have? He has ruined India, in 2-3 years India will need to beg for food , unless this fake Sadhu is dethroned, his hindutva agenda has not brought food on the table. Iam a Hindu and liked him ,but now realise he is just a much ado about nothing.

    • I believe he could have avoided the kumbh mela and postponed the bengal elections, taken early action of setting up oxygen plants in the country. Sure he is not sole contributer. but major contributor for sure.

    • It was quoted by Mr. Bahliya of IMF or IMA, that the superspreader for the cause of Corono – 2 in India is none other than our great PM Modiji.

    • Whataboutism is a tired argument. Modi centralised vaccines, didn’t put PM cares to effective use. If you want to blame the states, see the results after liberalisation (after May 20th)

    • I agree with you Pappu is responsible and his Italian mother too (it doesn’t matter, if she married an Indian, still she is Italian). Our Modi is the best, it doesn’t matter if Demonetisation has ruined the economy and GST has brought the GDP down. We can always have someone to blame, except our Dear PM.

      Aayega to Modi hee, bhale desh bik Jaye!

    • Ur blinded
      Because of people like u india currently facing such disastrous situation .Modi is hitler .Brainless dictator

    • I think you are blind followers. You don’t have to see situation. When election are going on then for one vote they arrange a booth in forest. But when people need an emergency services they unable do this. Why ? Indian people are elected a leader for better future.
      Not a party prayers. They know about situation of covid 19 but they do ellection rallies, khumbh mela, opening ceremony etc.
      After one year they don’t providing medical facilities for this situation. They haven’t any plans for this situation. Indian people are elected a leader not party prayers. If leaders are not able for better future then why they standing. We don’t talk about any party but we have to talk about future of India and their people. when leader elected by people then they see as a leader of indian government. They want basic needs. So please be indian.

      I rest my case!

    • The fact that ‘Pappu & his Italian mother ‘are not leaders does not make Modi aleader or argue against the points of the article.

    • if GODI is a true leader what is his performance in controlling the pandemic and declining economy on BJP ruling states. Firstly have some knowledge, as per the pandemic act, all the powers (regarding medical supplies and etc..) are vested with the central government. The performance of the BJP ruling states are the worst as per the statics given your so-called leader’s government and don’t try to change the cards on others when you have been questioned. Hence, prove “who is that leader? Pappu and his Italian mother or the fake Chai Whala!!!”.
      India is a surplus pharma country when the UPA was replaced by NDA, now we are begging for vaccines, Is this Leadership. We are sticking with only 2 pharma corporates, where all the PSUs were gone. Will any government allow corporates to fix the huge price for their vaccines during any disasters like this. By your point, I am understanding “Bleeding people is true leadership”.

    • He is responsible. Its exactly what being the Prime minister means. Being responsible for the lives of everyone. He is more responsible than every single individual in this country. So he is the person that should be blamed most.

    • I agree that the state governments are at fault too but you cannot call this piece a “character assassination”. Modi is the Prime Minister of India, he is responsible for the entire country. The Central Government had certain responsibilities and it has failed the country.
      Also correct me if I’m wrong (I’m not) but it WAS Modi who had massive rallies in Bengal…he even addressed at those rallies so please don’t act like he’s innocent and is being “attacked”.
      He’s guilty and apathetic to what’s happening across the country.

    • Absolutely true. This is a biased journalism. Health is a state subject and the state governments are required to handle it. Centre is providing all possible help and support.

    • It’s shameful that we are so fiercely protective of a deadly regime… The center is definitely responsible for ensuring better health care system… states whether opposition or same party are merely dependent on the decisions made by centre… it’s heart wrenching to see the current crisis in India… my heart bleeds for all those innocent souls.. and you are here defending someone who could have avoided atleast half the tragedy instead of gloating over the size of his rallies… I don’t know when the people of this country will actually see things the way they stand instead of the decorated show put up by the ardent media followers…

      • Shit article. I won’t pay for any article now on, on Print.
        For few dollars you are loosing ton of rupees.

    • We should be ashamed while writing such articles. In my opinion the way Our PM is tackling the situation no other leader could ever able to tackle such a scenario of India. And we Indians are very optimistic that soon the conditions will be normalized in our country. 🙏

    • Stop using that word Pappu. The idiots and clowns of the present have invented that to hide their own inability and absolute failure. If Modi can’t take this responsibility then who else. If he can take credits he has to take this as well. He and his ministers need to take the responsibility accept their failure. It is nothing but the truth that the Modi government took little steps to build India’s health infrastructure, declared a false victory over the virus, celebrated Kumbh and went ahead with election rallies when the disease was spreading like wild fire.

    • No previous Govt.had to face such crisis past, so this Govt.should should not be called callous at all.

    • Modi or Pappi alone cannot be blamed. Even though you are just a citizen you are also to be blamed as your your elected representatives penned the slogan, ” Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas”. You can’t blame anyone just because they are Italians. That’s racism. Have you ever been abroad? You should see and hear what the Libyans call us. ” Pakistani”. You think you would be happy to hear it?

    • Mr VM: Do you honestly believe that Modi is so indispensable that India will stop without him ? What do you think will happen if he gets incapacitated or passes away? Will India vanish off the face of this earth ?

      As French President Charles de Gaulle said:

      “The cemeteries are full of indispensable people”

  403. Sir, Modiji has stressed the need for atamnirbharta. We should be vocal for local and reject foreign medicines, vaccine raw materials and drugs. Only local medicines will work for us and atamnirbharta will eradicate poverty and unemployment from our country.

    • I wonder why is our health minister and modi not promoting coronial now for fighting the epidemic. Dr Harsh Vardhan has earlier been quite enthusiastic about this atmanirbhar medicine, and didn’t baba ram dev claim it was WHO approved?

    • U are very much correct in all respect. Is MGNREGA a good social scheme. ? Kindly visit different states / parts of India and then U will realise that how much corruption is going on under the Scheme , no end to it , more than 70% corruption is there Sir / Madam

      • Irony is that the modi govt. Which has demonised nrega for corruption have to rely on the same scheme only. That’s the point of author.

    • The heck dude… will you really let thousands of people die just because you wanted to be atmanirbhar darn dude something like that should not even exist in today’s culture really grow up its 2021 not 1930….

  404. This write up gets top marks for incoherent rambling, moving from everything to government incompetence to American university admissions. The present Indian government more then deserves every bit of criticism for it’s monumental ineptitude. But praising the dynasty in the same breath requires some kind of chutzpah. Let’s get real just because the current government is in a mess doesn’t make previous governments beacons of efficiency and good governance. Just because MNREGS has been hypocritically continued by the present government doesn’t make it s good scheme. The current plight that India finds itself in is a result of actions/inactions and policy decisions of more then the present government. Unfortunately the present government has decided to follow the same failed path of previous governments.

  405. This is harsh article, but it’s the truth.
    India is paying for electing uneducated people in goverment, all idiots and uneducated should be banned from taking politics, there should be minimum requirements educational wise like graduation or PG to enter politics, any one like chappal wala, sev wala or chaiwala is entering politics in India nowadays, fake doctors like vardhan and patra are pandemic to nation.

    This is my sincere request to indians, please please vote for people who have a definite idea to run nation, are educated not people who make speech and give fake hype.
