PM thanks people

Opposition exposes govt
The opposition has been criticising the government on the occasion of the first anniversary of the second term of the Modi government. They blame that government failed to deliver on administrative, economic, foreign affairs, and social fronts. The law and order situation is worsening, the economy of the country is staggering, the border tension with China and Nepal has created another issue for the country. Social rift has also widened.
The government has plenty of challenges ahead. How to deal with the lockdown period to start the economic activities in the country. It is undeniable that the country’s economy has suffered a lot in the phase of lockdown.
