AGENCIES, New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for beating of thalis at ‘Janta Curfew’ at 5 pm on March 22 in order to pay respect to those working to control the spread of the novel coronavirus. Instead, the Congress leader believed that immediate steps needs to be taken to revive the country’s economy during this COVID-19 pandemic and said that there was a need for a big financial package.
He also said that the deadly virus was a big attack on fragile economy. However, Rahul said clapping would not help the daily-wage workers and small and medium entrepreneurs. Tweeting in Hindi, the Congress leader said, “Clapping will not help the small and medium entrepreneurs and daily wage workers. Today there is a need for cash relief and tax sops, besides relief in repayment of loans as part of a big economic package. Take immediate steps.”
कोरोनावायरस हमारी नाज़ुक अर्थव्यवस्था पर एक कड़ा प्रहार है।
छोटे, मध्यम व्यवसायी और दिहाड़ी मजदूर इससे सबसे ज्यादा प्रभावित हैं। ताली बजाने से उन्हें मदद नहीं मिलेगी। आज नकद मदद, टैक्स ब्रेक और कर्ज अदायगी पर रोक जैसे एक बड़े आर्थिक पैकेज की जरुरत है।
तुरतं कदम उठाये!
