Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Sunday said that the folks of India could search resignation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi if points equivalent to employment and livelihood are not resolved, including that folks’s can’t survive lengthy on “hopes and assurances”. Criticising the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central authorities over the dealing with of the financial state of affairs within the wake of Covid-19 outbreak, Raut, in his weekly column within the social gathering mouthpiece Saamana, said that 10 crore folks have misplaced their livelihood and the pandemic has affected 40 crore households.
“How long will people spend their days on mere hopes and assurances? In the last 15 years, not a single problem of people has been removed. Prime Minister of Israel [Benjamin] Netanyahu is a friend of Prime Minister Modi. Due to the economic crisis and corona related atrocities, the Israeli people have started demonstrating on the streets everywhere. The people of Israel are demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Netanyahu. The same time can also come in India,” he said in his column Rokhthok.
Raut added that the corona crisis has led to 10 crore folks getting unemployed and financial management is extra important than management within the battlefield. “Millions are sitting unemployed today. Innumerable claims of inflation, poverty and unemployment have erupted in society. Economic leadership is more important than leadership in the battlefield,” Shiv Sena said. “Nobody is talking about the crisis, employment. It is easy to say crisis gives rise to opportunity. But, nobody knows how people are dealing with the crisis,” the Shiv Sena chief added.
Taking a dig on the BJP, he listed the federal government’s measures to sort out the financial state of affairs which he said embody procuring Rafael fighter jets, reciting Hanuman Chalisa every day (BJP MP’s remark), destabilising Rajasthan authorities, and coming back to energy in Maharashtra on its own.
“The stoves of 40 crore families have been extinguished. What is the solution to their problems? Bhoomi pujan of Ram temple will be done, BJP needs Rajasthan, it will happen. Rafale aircraft from France also came to Ambala. But how are those who lost jobs in this period coping with the situation? Will the rulers ever tell them?” the Saamana government editor requested in a sarcastically toned column.
The Sena chief said that the “threat” of coronavirus on India is “grave”, and the “measures” taken by the federal government to “defeat” it contains bringing fighter jets. He wrote that earlier than Rafale, Indian governments have procured different fighter jets like Sukhoi and MiG, however such a “celebration” was by no means achieved. “Will Rafale jets with the bomb and missile-carrying capacity be able to destroy the crisis of unemployment and economic challenges?” Raut requested.
The Shiv Sena chief added that the financial state of affairs of the nation could be very dangerous and said that folks will once more be able to change into “slaves”. “People will be ready to become slaves. Earlier, the British enslaved Indians and took them to ports such as Fiji, Mauritius Guyana, Suriname, etc. People will be ready to go as slaves now too. If the rules do not acknowledge this, then they can continue to celebrate over Rafael,” he said.
