    The reason why all states want to create RTPCR pandemic hoax is exposed! They get money which can be easily diverted into pockets with created data and expenditure accounts nobody can ask for their audit. The state enjoying authoritarian powers people can't held them accountable as protests are barred and judiciary too buys pandemic narrative to curtail freedom of people, win win situation for recklees governance. Wake up or Perish is the only way left for the people.

    @Dev - There's no point - the educated people have been fooled. Now big pharma will make tons of easy money asking people to take booster shots every 3-6 months for the rest of their lives. The vaccine should have been used only for the people with co-morbidity conditions or those in life threatening condition but governments have turned ordinary people into drug addict. Sadly our uneducated politicians in India are corrupt to the core and follow guidelines issued by the West without using any common-sense.
