If China was a democrazy, China would be a total failure like India right now.

The leader of your country is more interested in political rallies for election than solving the COVID catastrophe. It’s appalling governance.
Of course it is appalling governance. Just like it is appalling Governance to hide the pandemic that China did. As stated, if China had a semblance of responsible Govt, the world wouldn't be in the middle of a pandemic.

It is because the CPC is a responsible government that China is doing so well.

Lol. If China was a democracy, the bloody virus wouldn't have become a global pandemic.
Nonsense. It's your own unhygiene behaviour and reckless. Don't blame others.

India is doomed.
Nope.

Only possible to criticize an elected official like this in a democracy.

In a communist land -

Yes, she can cry and rant but evil politician still on their seat and getting tax payer money in india.

In China, such politician will have long removed and lost his job!

It is because CPC is a rogue government that the world is suffering from a pandemic.

India orders Twitter to pull tweets criticizing its COVID-19 response

India is once again trying to silence online criticism of its government. Medianama and TechCrunch report that the Indian government has ordered Twitter to pull more than 50 tweets criticizing the country's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Twitter has since blocked residents' access to the posts, which included critiques from a Member of Parliament, a minister and prominent members of the film industry.
Twitter isn't the only affected platform, TechCrunch added.
The company didn't directly address the removals in a statement, and instead outlined its policy. Twitter will only "withhold access" to content within a given region if it's deemed illegal but doesn't violate the social networks' policies. The firm added that it notifies account holders "directly" when a legal order affects their service, and publishes takedown requests on Lumen.
India is struggling with a record surge of COVID-19 cases after faring relatively well earlier in 2021. Hospitals have been overwhelmed, and oxygen shortages have compounded efforts to treat severe cases. Critics have blamed Prime Minister Modi's administration for the failures, including packed election rallies, religious gatherings and a lack of preparation for a second wave.
Twitter has stood its ground at times. It said in February that it wouldn't block activists, journalists and politicians in India. Those safeguards don't apply to others, though. Much like other social networks, Twitter is trying to strike a balance between freedom of expression and honoring local laws — and that doesn't always work out as hoped.

Hope this will improve the horrendous covid-19 situation in India...and death rate declines, oxygen supplies improves.

And people will not die due to no oxygen and no one to take care.

BJP care about the image, don't care about the dying hapless indians.

CPC did everything well once it knew there was a virus. If it didn’t, China would be where India is right now...on the verge of total collapse.
Except inform the world on time. And started the virus in the first place. And jailed a few people who spoke of the virus. Else everything was great.
