Bengaluru: Former prime minister H D Deve Gowda has appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to look into the plight of farmers, labourers and the middle-class people as the impact of the 21-day nationwide lockdown has been the most on them.

In a series of tweet Deve Gowda, “I welcome Hon’ble PM Narendra Modi’s idea for the people to express solidarity & gratitude towards healthcare workers. In addition to this, there is an immediate need to increase ‘testing’ for #COVID19. Increased testing will avoid overcrowding of Government isolation centers.”

“In such times of crisis, we should see to it that there is no disruption in farming activities by ensuring proper marketing channels to agricultural produce, especially perishables. Only then we can sustain our long battle against this pandemic,” he added.

In another tweet, he said, “The savings of daily wage laborers and the middle class is deteriorating day by day. Some are not able to afford even essentials for their survival. I request Hon’ble PM to look into this situation with utmost urgency”.
