Governments are using the coronavirus crisis to impose bad policies

Senior journalist Bhasha Singh spoke to Atul Sood, Professor at the Centre for the Study of Regional Development in the Jawaharlal Nehru University, about migrant workers and the deepening economic crisis. Prof. Sood mentions how governments are using the crisis due to the novel coronavirus to kill the rights of workers, and that the move would not bring the economy back on track. He said that while the government needs to invest and spend a percentage of the GDP, it is doing exactly the opposite.
