Other than that, there were no plans. Just more hollow words.
Despite all these threats, no one has been held accountable for the situation in India. Instead, Modi and the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have been focused more on cultivating their image and staying in power than helping the people in India who are suffering from a devastating surge of Covid-19 infections.
What sort of government is so cruel as to deny its constituents life-saving supplies of oxygen in order to burnish its own image?
I would argue it’s not the media’s reporting that is disconcerting. What is disconcerting is the government’s failure to take action and accurately report the death toll. The anger that so many have aimed at journalists needs to be redirected at those in power. There might not be disturbing images of mass cremation grounds to publish if the government had instilled sufficient preventative measures against Covid-19.
