"I won’t die of Coronavirus. I will surely die of hunger before that." I heard this lament more than a dozen times from different people as I joined a group of young friends trying to feed a thousand homeless people in Old Delhi in our small, almost helpless gesture of solidarity with them." Listen to Harsh Mander explain the plight of daily wage labourers as we live through a nation-wide lockdown to battle the deadly Coronavirus infection. The state’s measures to fight Coronavirus are stripping the poor of dignity and hope. In Old Delhi, there are several thousand homeless people waiting in line for a plate of food. Many said they had sat six hours for someone to come with food. Most said they had not eaten more than a couple of meals in the last three days. And the portions they got in charity were so meagre that they barely filled their stomachs.
