  • Tons of money being received from all over the world. Where is it? Only a few people even got the “huge” amount of 12000 rupees that they announced; most deserving people didn’t even get a response after applying. And now that thing is over too. By now the govt was supposed to provide free masks, gloves and sanitizers to every household, and highly subsidized treatment in every govt hospital with all facilities. Instead, govt hospitals are in worst conditions ever. What is the govt. even doing with all that money?
