Actor Nakuul Mehta took to Twitter to recite a poem about India's ongoing COVID19 crisis. Written by Ajay Singh, the poem was narrated as a part of the duo's poetry special, Too Much Democracy.

The poem throws light on the current shortage of medical facilities like beds, injections, and medicines that has rendered a huge health crisis in the country, leaving a lot of people in fatal conditions. A rough translation of few lines from the poem goes as follows:

"The one who has always spread poison in the air, how do you expect him to now provide oxygen for you?

Someone who has triggered a competition between kabristans and samshans, how do you expect him to build hospitals for you?"
