Kerala, the tiny state with less than 3 per cent of India’s population, records the second-highest number of cases in the country on daily basis. The state is expected to account for 30 per cent of India’s total Covid cases in the month of July. In almost all other states, the cases have declined, and daily activities are back to normal but in Kerala, the number of cases has remained above the expected numbers for fully opening since the last few months.
The cases are not coming down in the state since even before the arrival of the second-wave and the former and current health minister of the state are giving lectures in institutions around the country on Covid management.
As if the Coronavirus was not enough, Kerala is witnessing the spread of the Zika virus with 15 cases confirmed yesterday. Now, the neighbouring state of Karnataka was forced to step up vigil as the Zika virus spreads in Kerala. “In view of reporting of Zika Virus Disease (ZVD) in the neighbouring state of Kerala, it is crucial to intensify the vector control measures in Karnataka also. The current monsoon season supports the widespread proliferation of Aedes mosquito, which is a vector for Zika Virus Disease,” a circular by the Commissionerate of Health and Family Welfare Services said.
The state that is famously known as God’s own country, and is gifted with all kinds of resources and beauty unlike any other state of India, is being drowned down by the Communist government.
The Communist government’s incompetency is visible in its inability to control the virus spread in the state despite the availability of better resources as compared to other states. Moreover, the Communist government is destroying the industrial capacity of the state. The Communism virus is most dangerous because it is destroying the socio-economic capacity of the state and is responsible for the inability to control the pandemic.
Previously after being hounded out of Kerala by the Communist government, the Kitex group has announced an investment worth 1,000 crore rupees in Telangana.
Jacob said that it has become extremely difficult to do business in Kerala and the company faces continuous harassment and humiliation from the Communist government and decided to withdraw the 3,500 crore rupees project. After the Kitex group decided to scrap the investment in communist Kerala, its stock prices registered around 20 per cent gain within a day.
Moving out of Kerala means the group would be able to post better profits and operate peacefully because nowhere in the country industrialists face such humiliation for creating thousands of jobs and supporting the state’s economy.
Kitex Group is the world’s second-largest kids’ garments manufacturer and is expanding its business. With 1,000 crore rupees investment in Telangana, the company still has 2,500 crore rupees in its kitty for investment and the states across the country are looking to gain from Kerala’s loss.
Ruled by the Communists, it was only natural for Kerala to be averse to industrial growth, development and wealth generation. For a type of politics that views poverty and oppression as key to power retention, the ruling Left-government of Kerala was never expected to go out of its way to promote investments into the state. And if the Communist government survives for another term, the state would have no industries left.
The Communism virus, coupled with Zika virus and Coronavirus, is destroying the state of Kerala. If the Keralites want to maintain the superior socio-economic status of the state, they must throw out the Communism virus because a better government would be able to deal with the Coronavirus and Zika virus as well.
