KARMI during this pandemic, when he has no income, no opportunity to work and earn, it becomes difficult for him to feed himself & his family. Then he’s left with two options: either to starve or to break the lockdown rules set by the government, which will in return increase the

chances of spreading of the deadly virus in the community.
