Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram said on Wednesday the Union Government’s Rs 20 lakh crore relief package, ‘Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given us the headline and blank page (blank paper). Now it has to be seen how Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman fills that blank page. We are watching every extra rupee that will be put into the economy. ‘
Prime Minister Modi came to the country for the fifth time in 54 days on Tuesday during the lockdown. In his address, he said that the country has to become self-sufficient. A package of 20 lakh crore rupees will be given for self-reliant India campaign. Under this, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will start the announcements from Wednesday. We have to adopt local products in the path of becoming self-sufficient. The fourth phase of the lockdown will come, but it will be with new look and new rules. It will be told before May 18.
Chidambaram said – We will see who gets what?
Chidambaram tweeted two on Wednesday. He said that my response was also empty because of the blank page. We will see who gets what?
We will also carefully examine who gets what?
And the first thing we will look for is what the poor, hungry and devastated migrant workers can expect after they have walked hundreds of kilometres to their home states.
