Instead of making nuclear bombs, the dictators of North Korea are now trying to get their country out of famine. It is believed that the economic condition of North Korea has worsened due to the Corona virus lockdown. Due to this, more than half of the population is facing hunger for food. Kim Jong had warned earlier this year that North Korea could face a famine equivalent to the disaster of 1994-1998. 35 lakh people died in this famine.

Food crisis deepens in North Korea
According to the report, as the food crisis deepens in North Korea, Kim Jong Un is shifting his policies from the military to civilians. On Thursday, North Korea’s state media released photos of Kim Jong Un with several senior officials at his family tomb. Everyone standing in the front row with Kim is dressed in normal clothes, while officers in military uniform stand behind.

Kim’s priority poll exposed from the photo
Ri Pyong Chol, the most important figure in North Korea’s ballistic weapons program, is seen standing several lines behind Kim Jong-un. He also wore civilian clothes instead of his usual military uniform. This has led to speculation that Ri Pyong Chol has been removed from North Korea’s governing Politburo Presidium.

Expert also supported this claim
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Ken Goge, an expert on North Korea at the Washington DC-based CAN think-tank, said this shows that the military is no longer being given priority in this country. He also said that internally, Kim Jong Un’s focus is on the economy, not the nuclear program. Now the North Korean military has been lowered in the country’s order of precedence.

Kim is angry with the authorities regarding the prevention of corona virus
Last week, Kim Jong-un expressed anger at some of North Korea’s top officials during a meeting of the governing Workers’ Party. He claimed that the party is suffering from chronic irresponsibility and incompetence among its leadership. Kim called it a serious incident, describing it as a big threat to the security of the country. Kim in particular criticized his subordinates for their inaction in planning and implementing coronavirus prevention plans.

North Korea has not released the number of corona infected till date
Officially North Korea has not yet reported a single coronavirus case. Yet experts monitoring this country claim that the outbreak of Corona is increasing in North Korea after the internal travel ban came into force. When the Corona epidemic began, Pyongyang dramatically increased security along the border with China, stopping smugglers.
