Reforms By Modi Run Into Tired Socialist Criticism

The motley group of right-thinking Indians in this socialist society should not only promote the reforms announced last week but also push every Indian government and political party towards better economics

In India

India is currently going through its worst phase when it comes to battling the Covid-19 pandemic and after apparently entering stage three, the stakes are even higher. The number of infected and positive cases has already crossed 1000 and people are hoping there’s no explosion in terms of the new cases.

Amidst all this panic, a piece of positive news came from Akshay Kumar first when we heard that he pledged to donate 25 crores for this cause. And now, the latest we hear is Varun Dhawan follows Akshay Kumar’s footsteps and has donated a sum of 55 lakhs to the PM-CARES Fund and CM Relief Fund to help the needy.

The 32-year-old star made the announcement on the Twitter handle where he assured that “we will overcome” this battle of coronavirus.

“I pledge to contribute 30 lakhs to the PM CARE fund. We will overcome this. Desh hai toh hum hain,” the tweet reads.

Earlier in the day, the Central government created the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations (PM-CARES) Fund and appealed all the countrymen to show their support for the cause. Varun Dhawan is one among many stars who are using their social media platforms to raise awareness about the coronavirus.

Earlier on Friday, the Dilwale actor had penned a lockdown-themed rap in an attempt to urge the people to take the lockdown seriously and practice social distancing to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Actor also created a quirky video to support the rap song, which featured him as the rap artist. 

Besides Varun, the video featured excerpts from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s televised address to the nation in which he announced a nationwide lockdown as a precautionary measure against COVID-19.

The video also featured a scene from British television series Teletubbies, a scene from Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer Devdas and most importantly, country’s deserted roads amid the lockdown. Earlier, actor Akshay Kumar too pledged to contribute Rs 25 crore from his savings to the PM’s CARES Fund.
