India buys new weapons from Israel
India has a total of 30,000 ventilators for population of 1.3 billion people
The country has 469 active Covid-19 cases and 10 reported deaths due to corona virus
As if the corona virus couldn’t change the mood of Indian government. The Modi regime has ordered $116 million of weapons from Israel. Israel will provide 16,479 Negev light machine guns to India under this deal, according to Middle East Eye.
Indian doctors are complaining of lack of facilities, protective gears and necessary equipment to fight corona virus. There is a huge shortage of masks in the country, similar to its other neighbors.
The country has yet to start testing of its citizens. A number of doctors have declared it as an impending emergency. Thus, India may witness a spike in cases in the upcoming weeks.
However, the mood of Indian Prime Minister still seems extremely hostile to its neighbor, Pakistan. A defense deal at this moment, when the global policy shift has been observed for corona challenge. It speaks of the designs of current Indian regime. It shows the least concern of Indian government towards its own people.
The Pakistani Prime Minister has continuously stated his government’s policy for India. It consists of protecting the poor and vulnerable segments of society on both sides of the border. However, the armed forces say that they are all prepared to deal with any kind of situation.
The current trend of buying of defense equipment at this moment is alarming, though. It may hold some nefarious designs of the Indian regime to engage Pakistan in an armed conflict at a minor scale.
It is more concerning as the Pakistani Army has been called by the government to assist in the fight against corona virus. The Pakistan Army has started the deployment of its troops as well.
Let’s hope sense prevails in South Asia!
