Covid-19 lockdown in India is starving daily wage earners and farmers
The nationwide lock down has forced people out of jobs. Without any significant savings, the poorest people are the hardest hit. They are not even able to afford basic food needs. At the same time, the farmers and dairy farmers are unable to sell their produce, and products , and have to waste the food and lose money. The youth are out of school and do not have productive activities.
