new Delhi: Nobel laureate Mohammad Yunus said on Wednesday that Kovid-19 has 'brought the shortcomings of society and economy to the fore'. Especially in unorganized areas, where large number of people were seen going during lockdown. Yunus, an economist by profession, was awarded the Nobel Prize in 2006 for establishing the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh and applying the principle of small loans and small financing.
Addressing the third Laureates and Leaders for Children conference, Yunus said that especially in India we have seen how migrant workers have gone to their homes on foot after losing their livelihood during lockdown.
He said, “Kovid has exposed the shortcomings of our society and economy at large. Such as the migration of people from the unorganized sector working as daily wage laborers on a large scale. They soon ran out of money, had no food, no money for rent, especially in India, so they walked for miles on foot to their home because they had no livelihood. “
