Although the lockdown imposed to avert a coronavirus pandemic was inconvenient for many people, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari discovered a new way to make money in the midst of a calamity. One of his claims, in which he claims to make Rs 4 lakh every month through YouTube, has gone viral in recent days.
When Nitin Gadkari arrived in Bharuch on Thursday to assess the progress of the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, he made this statement. During his speech, he stated that he earns Rs 4 lakh per month in royalties from the video-sharing platform YouTube. When he presented several lectures online in foreign universities, he claimed that this is the hard work of lockdown.
During the COVID-19 lockdown, the minister said he had the opportunity to give addresses via video conferencing in numerous nations around the world, including Germany, New Zealand, and the United States. He delivered 950 online lectures, all of which were recorded and published on his YouTube page. Thousands and millions of people around the world watched these videos, and the number of users on the YouTube channel began to rapidly grow as a result. As a result, YouTube now pays a royalty of Rs 4 lakh each month.
