Please don’t fall for any of #SonuSood’s PR tactics. He did a lot of good, but he has been paid to talk & showcase the govt’s incompetence. He is not some millionaire going about distributing money. It’s not his money. All gimmicks. Read thread.
#SonuSood got permission to transport migrants via buses when state govt had shut down borders & weren’t permitting any travel. Along with this a bunch of media & photographers were present to capture him waving at buses for news sites & Instagram pages.
He has had/maybe still has a long standing affair with Nawaz Modi Singhania wife of Gautam Singhania and everybody close to both parties know this. Both of them own separate chains of gyms. His marriage is pretty much a sham at this point.

It was noted that despite being resource constrained and densely populated, timely #lockdown & rapid augmentation of infrastructure by India have helped to keep the case/ million & deaths/million considerably lower as compared to other countries

@PMOIndia @MoHFW_INDIA
Within the country, eight States (#Maharashtra, #Karnataka, #AndhraPradesh, #TamilNadu, #UttarPradesh, #WestBengal, #Odisha and #Telangana) contribute to around 73% of the active caseload, as of today

Fiscal marksmanship is a problem that plagues the #budgeting process at all level of government, from #Centre to #state governments. Attention is however still focused on the #Centre, despite #states now accounting for one and a half times the spending of the #Centre. (1/n)
This @IDFCinstitute working paper on fiscal marksmanship by @SharmadhaS and @PrakharMisra analyses the revenue #budgets of 28 #states of 15 years to analyse why state #budget estimates often miss the actuals on the various components of their total revenues. (2/n)
Fiscal marksmanship is a structural issue cutting across all #states, whether rich or poor. A rich state like #Kerala overestimated its total revenue in all 15 years but so did #Assam in 14 out of 15 years by an average of a massive 18.18%. (3/n) Image

2)This suggests that the contact tracing efforts are effective.
3) Level of testing needs to be raised further to lower the positivity rate to <2% (tractable). Image
How many NEW cases daily from UP? 7 day moving average:
1) There are approx 750 new cases daily.

#PressFreedom #lockdown2020 1/n
In March, at the height of the #lcokdown, @thewire_in's @svaradarajan was delivered a legal notice by police from Ayodhya. A quote in an article was wrongly attributed UP the Chief Minister, which was retracted and a corrigendum issued.
On 26 March, DM of #Varanasi sent a legal notice to Hindi daily Jansandesh Times claiming their report about tribal children eating grass for want of food due to the sudden announcement of the lockdown on March 24 was false. 3/n

It is almost a blank in medieval #history of #India before the Islamic invasion. Was it because this was a period when INDIA fought back valiantly against the invading forces and our historians wanted us to believe in timidity of our race?
The #Huns who stampeded over Europe and Persia were thwarted out of India by Joint forces of Yashodharma of #Malwa and Baladitya of #Magadha to beyond Afghanistan in 6th Century. #History #INDIA
The same feat was repeated again when #Huns attacked. This time the Emperor Prabhakarvarman of #Kannauj in now #UttarPradesh fought and pushed them back till edge of Persia.

1/n A little thread on the impact of #9baje9minute on the Indian #Electricity #grid @PosocoIndia @MinOfPower

From @PosocoIndia o data #India's #power #demand at 19:00 hours in the last three #Sundays:

29 March: 110632 Gigawatts (GW)
22 March: 125000 GW
15 March: 144258 GW
2/n #Power #demand at 19:00 hours on similar Sundays last year:
31 March 2019: 149361
07 April 2019: 150735

#lockdown has reduced demand by 35-40 GW primarily as a result of the partial closure of industries and commercial establishments
3/n In 2019, #residential #demand was about 25% of total demand but it likely to be 33% of the total demand today. So, a sudden change in #residential #demand is likely to have a bigger impact.

The National Crime Records Bureau (#NCRB) published the annual Crime in India Report 2018 recently. #DALITWOMENFIGHT's @elite_dalit and @_senpai_i explains what it says about crime and #atrocities against #DalitWomen and children. #TalkCaste #SCSTPOA
As per the NCRB data 2018, the total number of crimes and atrocities reported against the Scheduled Caste is 42793. In these 42793 cases, the rate of filing of chargesheet is 81.3%, while the pendency rate is 27.5%. #DALITWOMENFIGHT #TalkCaste #NCRB #SCSTPOA
The high number of chargesheets being filed also negates the false notion that most of the cases filed are “fake” & out of “revenge”. It’s extremely important to remember that these are only those cases of atrocities which are reported.The actual number is much higher. #TalkCaste
