New Delhi, agency. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi laid siege to him immediately before Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address to the nation. Rahul said that my request to the Prime Minister is that in his address, we should announce that our lakhs of labor brothers and sisters who are going on the streets should reach their homes safely. Along with this, declare at least 7500 rupees to be added to the accounts of all laborers to support in times of crisis.
Mother cries when children get hurt
In his sentimental message on Twitter, Rahul Gandhi said, 'Mothers cry when children get hurt. There is no mother who does not cry after seeing the hurt in the child's heart. Today Mother India is crying because its crores of children and daughters are walking on the streets thousands of kilometers hungry. I request the government to bring these people to your home safely… Put money in their bank accounts and give small and medium scale packages to the small and medium scale industries for their employment as soon as possible.
Before PM Modi's address, not only Rahul Gandhi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also targeted the Center. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had said that Bengal did not get anything from the meeting with PM Modi through video conference and had to return empty-handed. Mamta Banerjee alleged that West Bengal has not received the financial support from the Center as much as it deserves.
PM Modi closes opposition
Amid sharp attacks from the opposition, PM Modi in his address announced the package of Rs 20 lakh crore and stopped speaking to the opposition. In his address, the Prime Minister said that Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will present before the country in detail the relief package in a phased manner from Wednesday to the next few days. PM Modi said that this self-sufficient India campaign package of Rs 20 crore is about 10 percent of the country's total GDP.
Chidambaram said, ... economic activities will go on
Chidambaram also advocated the introduction of air services, supporting the decision to start trains. They say that the introduction of road transport, not only rail and air, will lead to economic activities which will help to a great extent in stopping the migration of laborers.
States should get more rights
Randeep Surjewala, the head of the Congress's media department, advocated giving more rights to the states on lockdown, citing the deepening crisis of the economic wheel, so that steps can be taken to start the state economy and business afresh. And corona infection can also be controlled according to the ground conditions.
