Today the country is going though a terrible crisis and the coming period could be even worse. After the lockdown, there is no work for workers or the youth. India’s MSE’s are going through a major crisis. 64% MSME’s don’t have enough money to pay salaries and many are on the verge of shutting down. The government wants to blame the current unemployment crisis on the Corona Virus lockdown. However, the truth is that even before the Corona crisis, the country was going through its highest unemployment rates in 45 years. After the lockdown the economy has completely crashed.
At a time like this shouldn’t the government announce an unemployment allowance of Rs. 7500 per month? Shouldn’t public health, education, MNREGA, pension and ration be improved? Is it true that the country has no money after the lockdown? Or is all the money concentrated in a few hands? After all, why is it that even after such a major crisis when the unemployed and small traders are bankrupt, big corporate capitalists have made so much money? Watch this explainer video by ChalChitra Abhiyaan to know more.
