New Delhi: Election strategist Prashant Kishor took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the latter doled out financial packages for the children who lost their parents due to Covid-19.

“Another typical masterstroke by Modi Sarkar, this time redefining empathy and care for children ravaged by Covid and its catastrophic mishandling,” PK tweeted.

“Instead of receiving much-needed support now, the children should feel positive about a promise of stipend when they turn 18,” he said citing a press release that announced the PM CARES help.

One of the measures declared was a fixed deposit in children’s name.

“PM CARES will contribute, through a specially designed scheme, to create a corpus of ₹ 10 lakh for each child when he or she reaches 18 years of age,” the press release said.

“The child will also be given admission in the nearest Kendriya Vidyalaya or in a private school as a day scholar. If the child is admitted in a private school, the fees as per the RTE norms will be given from the PM CARES…will also pay for expenditure on uniform, textbooks, and notebooks,” the release added.

About 577 children had lost both their parents till last week, according to the Centre. However, this figure is believed to be a gross understatement by many.
