#FactCheck of selective & manufactured claim, "75 million (7.5 Crore) people in India going into Poverty due to #Covid19 Pandemic".
#PewResearch published "analysis" on 17-Mar-2021, which was sourced from #WorldBank's Povcalnet database on Poverty.

Page 1 of #PewResearch tells that by 2019 w.r.t 2011, 'Poor' ($1.9 per day income), "decreased" by 262 million & 'Low Income' category ($2.01 - $10 per day income), "increased" by 306 million people.

(Orange - 2011 : Green - 2019)
Page 2 & 3 of #PewResearch tells that 'Poor', "increased" by 75 million as per Post-pandemic estimates.
Now comes the most interesting part ..

#WorldBank released 'Poverty & Equity Brief' paper in April'2021 which was based on blog of #MaheshVyas of (CMIE) which was released in Business Standard, in Mar'2021.
Whos' #MaheshVyas & what is #CMIE ? It is the same Pvt. Ltd. company which is spreading propaganda on Unemployment since long.

This 'Poverty & Equity Brief' paper by #WorldBank states some figures also, but they were as per 'Poverty' survey up-to 2017 only.

#WorldBank Povcal database has earlier (in 2018) shown that India's Poverty is continuously getting "decreased".
Most interesting part, if you actually go to #WorldBank Povcalnet portal, you will find 'Poverty' survey available till 2019 only. #India's data not available.

Lutyens Eco-system works systematically & "manufacture" half-fact propaganda so that #Congress & #RahulGandhi may target #Modi government. As "common public", don't #FactCheck they believe when someone take name of #PewResearch etc.
#PewResearch "methodology" document if full of assumptions & actual data is "not available". #WorldBank PovcalNet portal clearly states, revised estimates of global poverty from 1981 till 2017 were released on March 2021.

#WorldBank's 2020 report also states, "Measuring Poverty in India without Recent Data", that too calculation was done till 2017-18 only.

Question is, Where the Hell is Report which states, "75 million (7.5 crore) people become 'Poor' in India." ?

पीएम #Modi जी ने सही कहा ; उन्होंने 1971 में बांग्लादेश के निर्माण के लिए #RSS द्वारा प्रायोजित जन सत्याग्रह में अटल जी के साथ भाग भी लिया था और तिहार जेल भी गए थे। #Bangladesh ने इसके लिए 2015 में अटल जी को सम्मानित भी किया था। ImageImage

'हाँ', 10 या 15 रुपये सस्ता हो सकता था Petrol और Diesel ...

पर तब शायद सेना के Veterans को One Rank One Pension (OROP) के अंतर्गत 42,740 करोड़ रुपये न मिल पाते।
'हाँ', 10 या 15 रुपये सस्ता हो सकता था Petrol और Diesel ...

पर तब शायद Armed Forces के लिए 7 सालों में 6.5 लाख करोड़ रुपये के हथियार न खरीदे जाते।
'हाँ', 10 या 15 रुपये सस्ता हो सकता था Petrol और Diesel ...

पर तब Rafale, Apache, S-400, Tejas Mk-1A जैसी बड़ी डील न हो पाती बल्कि Bullet Proof Jacket & Helmet भी न मिल पाते शायद।
