‘Can a poor Dalit not wear nice clothes?’ Beneficiary of PM Garib Kalyan package lambasts ‘liberals’ who mocked her saying she doesn’t look ‘poor enough’

DD News has broadcast multiple videos where women have expressed their happiness after they got benefitted from the different schemes of the Modi government.

On Friday, Doordarshan (DD) broadcast comments of beneficiary women across the country thanking Prime Minister Narendra Modi for taking care of them by transferring Rs 500 to women account holders of Pradhan Mantri Jan-Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) during the lockdown period.

DD News has broadcast multiple videos where women have expressed their happiness after they got benefitted from the different schemes of the Modi government.

It is pertinent to note that the Modi government has announced that every PMJDY account holders would be given Rs. 500 for the next three months under the PM Garib Kalyan Package during the coronavirus lockdown in the country.

In one such video, a beneficiary named Kajal, a resident from Himachal Pradesh, thanked PM Modi for providing Rs 500 at a time when there was no livelihood opportunity for her due to the nation-wide lockdown.

Troll attack on beneficiary for being ‘not so poor’

However, the usual lots of the “liberal-secular” media, trolls took offence to the lady praising Prime Minister Modi. A lot of abuse began on social media as people raised questions on the authenticity of how ‘needy’ the beneficiary really was. The assertions of the elites in the media were that the lady was wearing a good attire and declare that she did not look ‘poor enough’ to be at all a real beneficiary under the scheme.

Vidya Krishnan, a notorious fake news peddler, who has been waging a misinformation war against the country through false reporting on coronavirus crisis, took to Twitter to mock the poor woman after she praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

According to Vidya Krishnan, the lifestyle of the woman in the video did not depend on Rs 500 given by PM Modi. Krishnan, who claims to be a journalist, seems to have analysed Kajal’s lifestyle within the 30 seconds time frame of the video tweeted by DD News.

Rifat Jawaid, an Aam Aadmi Party troll masquerading a journalist, also mocked the beneficiary, claiming that the Doordarshan should have chosen a better actress, who indeed looked poverty-stricken. According to Jawaid, the lady who received Rs 500 in her account was not enough poor.

Meanwhile, Congress trolls also hit the timeline to attack Modi government for indulging in propaganda. Gaurav Pandhi, a Congress party worker alleged the beneficiary to be a BJP worker.

Another troll, perhaps from Kazakhstan, who claims to be a co-founder of fake news website Alt News, also mocked at the lady being not so ‘poor’.

Why cannot poor and Dalits dress properly: PM Garib Kalyan beneficiary

After being at the receiving end of the hate pushed by the elite liberals, on Saturday, Kajal – the beneficiary of PM Garib Kalyan package, responded to the claims made by the trolls. In a video message, Kajal lambasted the beneficiary-shamers by asking them why cannot poor and Dalits dress properly or live in a good house.

Kajal, hitting out at those who mocked at her for not looking “poor enough”, stated that she worked in a beauty parlour and knew the importance of being clean and hygienic all the time. She attacked the liberals and trolls to stop passing vulgar comments on women.

The troll attack on a poor woman living in a faraway village depicts everything that is bad about Indian journalism today. The liberals, who consider themselves to be elites in the society, perhaps think that a poor lady living does not qualify to wear good clothes or be residing in a pucca house.

The liberals, who are habituated to availing freebies during UPA days, do not understand the ambitions of a quintessential villager. The “liberal-secular” media are stuck in the socialist era where every non-elite was looked through a ‘deprived’ lens. The aspirational new India has now moved away from these cliched thought process, who have now started a living a life which once they aspired.
