A lot of "trust in the state" oped and articles recently.

Here is Partha Mukhopadhyay (you should read everything by him!) and @MuktaNaik writing "Migrant workers distrust a state that does not take them into account"

The article by Partha et al. appeared 10 days back. Here is Bihar rn:

"Outside the building, in Gangahara, villagers admit no one stays in the centre. “Kya lockdown? Kya corona?”, says a villager, before offering a conspiracy theory. "

Again from Indian Express (Edit) : "The high levels of public trust in government in Kerala and Tamil Nadu also make the task of the administration easy. "
