Received a call from Mr @HardeepSPuri, Hon Min of State for Commerce and Industry, GOI today afternoon. Had a long discussion with him on the steps to Revive the Economy and submitted my inputs for his consideration. (1/n)
Following were my inputs:
1. All announcements made as part of #AtmaNirbharBharat Package were about liquidity infusion & making cash available through Financial Institutions. The focus on demand side is lacking. Govt has to put money in people's hands. (2/n)
2. Govt can categorize sectors into 'minor affected', 'medium affected' & 'severely affected'. Help can be extend to a particular sector either in the form of financial or taxation or others forms based on the category under which a sector falls. (3/n)

Women migrants are the ones struggling at the front line & yet they have been invisiblised in the stories & narratives that have come out,& in state & civil society response.

Please share links to reports/stories, if any, focussing on women & the gendered impact on Migrants.

Only Rajasthan , Maharashtra , Kerala made migrant labourers pay ₹1000 charge for journey . @INCIndia which runs the first , partner in second , promoter of third wakes up early in the morning & issues a statement telling Party will pay for it .., #MigrantLabourers
In the mean time Tripura , Karnataka , Madhya Pradesh , Bihar , Chatthisgarh , Jharkand have paid either for their State people or at the origin .. Usual suspects jump on the wagon & make it another 12 hour of negative news . #MigrantLabourers
Railways already subsidises 57% of passenger fare . 1/3 rd passengers & empty train on return journey adds another 28%. This 85% is borne by railways . It’s asking another 15% from states of origin not #MigrantLabourers

"These people have one day ration with them. They are in a desperate situation. Why can't the people who have tested negative go to their respective homes? I don't understand.
This violates their fundamental right!" Adv Prashant Bhushan argues.
@pbhushan1
Court says some States are taking steps.
To this, @pbhushan1 responds:
"There were some reports earlier that certain states were trying to bring back their people, but that has really not happened"

As of Monday (April 6, 2020), the number of deaths due to #Coronavirus in India stand at 83. But I was also thinking maybe one ought to look at non-Covid 19 deaths too. Deaths due to various circumstances under the #lockdown #covid19 #CoronavirusinIndia
1. Ravneer Singh (30) died in Kaliash Mod, Uttar Pradesh. A native of Badfra village, Morena district, this father of 3 worked as a delivery agent in Delhi. Walked 200 km before dying of exhaustion

@narendramodi It'd be useful to have a centralized (govt) twitter handle (& dashboard on portal) tracking #coronavirusindia so that correct data is available to all Indians at any given time, panic is reduced, & measures taken or expedited where necessary.
@MoHFW_INDIA @NITIAayog #CoronaAlert
@narendramodi @MoHFW_INDIA @NITIAayog + #Covid19 & #lockdown is a #Chakravyuh we've all entered. Whether we emerge as Arjuna or Abhimanyu will depend on how accessible, how well-informed, how well-managed our #exit plan is.
The world over.

@drharshvardhan @capt_amarinder @Naveen_Odisha @amitabhk87 @WHO @OfficeofUT
@narendramodi @MoHFW_INDIA @NITIAayog @drharshvardhan @amitabhk87 +Honble @PMOIndia is a rolemodel & we tend2 copy what he does, how he conducts himself.

Alarming & highly negligent of those who designed & released the "Dear Farmers" newspaper ad (incl #DAVP @MIB_India) with a pic of PM in a "mask" with nose exposed!
