On Reality Check, Sreenivasan Jain reports on the "jobless Bharat" turning to MNREGA amid the coronavirus crisis. Millions of jobs and livelihood have collapsed across the country under the lockdown. An unlikely lifeline has emerged in the form of the much-criticised UPA-era MNREGA scheme. PM Modi had earlier derided the MNREGA on the floor of the Parliament, saying that it is a "monument to the Congress' failure". However, in May, this year, over 2 crore have signed up for MNREGA - highest surge in eight years. Now, under Modi 2.0, the government has committed an additional Rs 40,000 crores to MNREGA.
