What A Shame: When the Govt. Fails to Provide Data On Migrant Deaths, Students Suicide, And 8 Major Issues
Amid the COVID crisis a lot more is happening which is going unnoticed by the people and the government. Let’s now focus the attention towards the mankind crisis that needs attention and should be stopped from reoccurring. Now during the parliamentary Monsoon Session when opposition raised their questions over various matters the BJP-led government has no other response than saying “We have no Data”.
To fight off any issue it’s very important that there is enough data over the issues. The government of India’s failure to provide any data over the matters is causing a fierce reaction and criticism not only in the parliament but also those who are vigilant.
While data and records are the most essential to lay a future course of action, but the governments incapability to provide data for these 8 issues make it so much more difficult.

During the national lockdown most of the businesses got disrupted and fell apart including MSMEs (MSME - Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises), the government doesn’t have any data in that matter too. The utmost and important concern of our PM Modi is to make India Aatm Nirbhar , but on the other side the small and medium businesses are getting destroyed right in front of us, which should have been the foundation of Aatm Nirbhar notion.
4. No Records or Data on doctors who lost their lives

If you follow the news, the govt., has said that it will provide “Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Package Insurance Scheme for Health Workers Fighting Covid-19” and lend compensation to doctors if they lose their life due to COVID-19. But after creating such promises, we believe there must be a track of doctors who didn’t survive during this crisis.
But when enquired fromthe Minister of State for Health- Mr. Ashwini Choubey informed Rajya Sabha that health is a state subject and suck data is not maintained at the central levels.
