Anmol Ambani, the eldest son of Anil Ambani, has lashed out against a new round of lockdowns being imposed amid the surge in Covid-19 cases, saying such restrictions do not concern health but control and that they destroy the very backbone of society and the economy.  

The 29-year-old former executive director of Reliance Capital in a series of tweets lambasted the new semi-lockdown rules.

“Professional ‘actors’ can continue shooting their films. Professional ‘cricketers’ can play their sport late into the night. Professional ‘politicians’ can continue their rallies. But YOUR business or work is not ESSENTIAL. Still don’t get it?” he said in a tweet.

He had in the past too voiced opposition to such restrictions and retweeted videos and comments denouncing them.

“What does essential even mean? EACH INDIVIDUAL’S WORK IS ESSENTIAL TO THEM,” he said tweeting with hashtag #scamdemic. Lockdowns, he said, are key in “continuing and enabling greatest wealth transfer in human history”.

“The mistake is that the people think this is simply inefficient governance. It’s not. It’s a coordinated, thought out set of policies designed to enable a new world order to be brought in,” he said.

For an economy that was seeking nascent recovery after the world’s strictest lockdown last year pummelled business, a resurgence of the pandemic is posing a serious threat. States have announced partial lockdowns in response to infections rising by record levels.
