As We are entering Unlock-2 while battling the Coronavirus
 
  1. In comparison to other countries across the globe, India is still in a very stable situation, in the battle against COVID-19. Our death rate is under control.
  2. People who are not following rules need to be stopped and made aware of the problems.
  3. We notice that there has been a negligence on people's social and personal behaviour: wash hands, used sanitisers, wore masks, maintained social distancing and avoided shaking hands. That is a sign of worry.
  4. On Gareeb Kalyan Rozgar Yojana: In the last few months, farmers have got a total of Rs 18,000 crore directly in their bank accounts, for migrants too, the PM Gareeb Kalyan Rozgar Yojana has been launched. About 80 crore people have also got 5 kg ration for free and 1 kg of dal (cereal) per month free of cost.
  5. Keeping in mind all the festivals that are coming up in the next few months, this scheme to provide 80 crore people with 5 kg free ration and 1 kg dal (cereal) per month will now be extended till Diwali and Chhatt Puja -- till the end of November.
  6. We are now bringing One Nation One Ration Card. This will greatly benefit migrant workers and their families.
