Mission Jai Hind: Experts Propose 7 Point Plan To Come Out Of Covid-19 Crisis

Named as “Mission Jai Hind”, the plan draws guidelines for the central and state governments to rebuild the lives and livelihoods affected by the coronavirus crisis. 

Several intellectuals, economists and experts have come together to propose a 7-point agenda to tackle the health and economic crisis sparked by Covid-19, stating that the economic stimulus package announced by the central government “virtually ignores the urgent need for economic support to ordinary citizens whose lives and livelihoods have been shattered by the Covid-19 crisis and lockdown.”

Named as “Mission Jai Hind”, the plan draws guidelines for the central and state governments to rebuild the lives and livelihoods affected by the coronavirus crisis.

Yogendra Yadav, Ramachandra Guha, Bezwada Wilson, Jean Dreze, Harsh Mander, and other intellectuals have supported the plan which proposes the principle of “Whatever it takes” to raise resources for Mission Jain Hind. The plan suggests treating all resources  (cash, real estate, property, bonds, etc) with citizens or within the nation as resources available during this crisis.

Highlights of the plan: 

  • Migrants should be helped to reach back their home towns within 10 days.
  • Universal and free healthcare system for all Covid-19 patients.
  • Universal access of 6 months to the expanded ration.
  • Enhancing job guarantee in both rural and urban regions.
  • Cash transfer as compensation for loss of livelihoods and jobs.
  • Farmers, small businesses, house loan interest should be waived off for three months.
  • Lack of resources should not be a reason to constrain the national revival mission.

The plan also proposes expansion of job guarantee to MNREGS workers per household up to 200 days, with compensating the same workers for the loss of job during the lockdown and payment of their pending wages. It further proposes a guarantee of employment for 100 days per person this year in urban areas.

The plan also demands compensation for the loss of a job or livelihood, while proposing waiving off of the interest on loans for weaker sections until the economy is revived. It also suggests three months deferment on loan and interests for Farmers, small businesses, and first-time house-loans.

It also suggests universal access to expanded ration (10 kg foodgrains, 1.5 kg daal, 800 ml cooking oil, 500 gm sugar per person per month), even to those who do not possess a ration card. The proposal aims at not letting anyone go hungry during the covid-19 crisis.
