Mass brutalities and torture by Modi through his completely unjustified total lockdown

This is a placeholder post. Will try to keep track of instances that come to my notice.


One ambulance driver from our place was driving from Mumbai to Shrigonda, carrying a patient and the driver’s father was travelling with him. Police accused the ambulance of carrying passengers in the ambulance and thrashed them with sticks. After travelling for few kms, the father started feeling uneasy. No hospital admitted him or treated him. The father died after some time. The news flashed in the local news papers today. [Source]

    while I agree that the implementation was bad due to sudden announcement and lack of planning(much like demonetization) what was the alternative to total lockdown? A lot of epidemiologists around the world have actually endorsed this move for doing this early in the curve. Developed countries like USA and Italy have floundered or not doing this.

    what is it that should have been done? do you think it should have been done in a staggered manner? Even with this lockdown because of that one meeting at Nizamuddin we are seeing sharp spike in cases. Imagine if no lockdown was in place.

    you often criticize Indian policy/admin services for lack of critical thinking and policymaking, which may be true. But, How do you think Italy/USA/France have handled this?
    They are supposed to have much better bureaucrats and advanced policymaking driven by data science and all that. They are averaging 1000 deaths a day
    Is the Malta/Singapore model scalable for a complex heterogeneous country like India?
    Could we afford to do as much testing as S.Korea did?
    Do we have the resources?

    Thank you for highlighting the atrocities in India after lock down.
    In Australia ( we have more Covid19 cases and deaths per capita than India ) too, we have 24 hour lock down But many reasonable excuses,including going for work, buying grocery,medicines,visiting hospital,going for exercise are allowed by government dictat widely printed in newspaper.

    Please post my comment under alias KPN.Thank you.
