Demand traceability that’ll break encryption - claim we respect privacy.

Try to censor everyone on SM except your abusive trolls - claim we love free speech.

Ensure farmers get less and consumers pay more - claim we’re doubling their income.

Keep increasing fuel prices...
Claim “global rates” even when they’re the lowest they’ve been in decades!

First claim Modi’s made Indian image amazing internationally, yay Modi. Then switch to world is against us, defaming us, conspiracy, when they report the truth of your failure.

The vaccine order claims,
All clear lies and falsehoods.

They’ve demolished all institutions that had credibility, removed all competent people and placed in sycophants that’ll lie and say nonsense all day for them, including a Health Min who’ll support a charlatan Coronil salesman over doctors.
This is what’s happened in 7 years that didn’t happen in 70 years. This murder of truth, facts and competence is their real crowning achievement.

I am pro vaccines and I also want government to release important data surrounding it. That’s not hesitancy, it’s common sense.

What data do I want?

- Covaxin Phase 3 trial, peer reviewed.

- How many got COVID after 1st, 2nd dose. With what variant. (We need genome sequencing)
- How many had to get hospitalised, died after vaccines (1st and 2nd dose breakup. Covaxin / Covishield breakup, state and region wise.

- Status of variant identification in India. Because with these many cases, virus has a much higher chance of mutating. Must be tracked.
Without such data, impossible to make informed calls on policy. Our great Govt operates entirely on one man’s feelings and gut instead of data. It’s proven this is a horrible way to do things.

Why I want the data instead of just accepting the efficacy data out there? Or UK data?

I think I’ve figured out COVID death discrepancy. Was looking at how states are compiling the death data that they release, and it’s crazier than one could imagine. [Thread]

Looked at 3 large states, but the figures they release of deaths are collected from hospitals!
The death figures you hear only counts people who died while COVID positive when admitted in a hospital!

Someone never admitted to hospital - not counted.

Someone released after being negative and dying due to post COVID complications - not counted.
Someone even dying outside the hospital, pleading for a bed - not counted!

The data is assuming COVID deaths is only COVID patients dying in a hospital, which is obviously going to lead to a massive undercounting of COVID deaths.

There is a source of the real numbers though...

Why is the PM missing? Why are they campaigning in Bengal? Here’s the likely answer:

In any event, the first question he asks is what’s best for his image. It’s never what’s best for people or nation, it’s always the image.

In the current crisis, they took a concerted call...
And they reached the conclusion that staying out of reach and away from the crisis was a better bet for his image.

Thought process: Nothing to be done, we’ve already exported vaccines, not allowed foreign ones or prepared hospitals and oxygen, so people will die.
If Modi leads from the front, people will associate him with the deaths and the crisis. So he’ll do nothing.

In a few weeks, when lots have died but the situation starts to get better - oxygen, medication sorted, bed situation better, vaccines being imported and made...

What can the PM do? Here’s a list for the very least!

1. Stop all public events and campaigning!

2. Ask people who can afford it to stay home.

3. Ensure oxygen and medicine supply by any means - and till that happens, give real timelines and speak the truth on situation.
4. Get oxygen plants set up - it takes 15 days by DRDO, can be done in 10.

5. Expand emergency bed capacity - stadiums, schools - put ventilators and oxygen where possible, but even basic care is better than dying outside waiting.
6. Pay for the damn VACCINES! Not funding it is criminal. Stop the data stealing app deployment, focus on giving vaccines!

7. Central Call Center to coordinate hospital, medicine and oxygen. The current system of random lists circulating is stupid and terrible! Army can man it.

I helped with someone’s mother get admitted to the hospital last night.

All systems have collapsed, and your life is worth nothing. Stay isolated and don’t get the disease, because if you do it’s truly up to pure luck if you’ll make it. The system will just watch with apathy.
No one’s telling you what hospital to go to. You’ll call people in powerful places for help, and they might try. They’re flooded too.

Doctors will respond there are no beds, there is no oxygen and nothing to be done. You’ll keep calling and they’ll tell you go to XYZ hospital...
You’ll try and find an ambulance with oxygen, take your loved one to the hospital. You’ll then realise there really are no beds.

You’ll wait there, crying and calling the people who were helping while the oxygen in the ambulance also starts to run out.

Many are asking how the iPhone, crypto and jobs scammer Neel that @zoo_bear has been tweeting about is RW’s fault. It’s one individual scammer.

Well, the over 50 crores in scams happened under the guise of nationalist, pro-BJP, Hindutwawadi credentials! [Thread]
The scammer used these for credibility and reach. No one would trust a random account, but many fell for it because IT Cell ecosystem amplified Neel’s hateful content, building him up!

For every 1 person who believes BJP’s hateful rhetoric, there are 10+ in it for personal gain!
From ground RSS cadres to BJPs Twitter trolls, a majority couldn’t care less about Hindutwa, Cow and India. They’re in it for personal benefit that comes in many forms. Money is one, but for many, it is:

- Recognition in the ecosystem for spreading hate.
- Retweets and likes.
