“Clapping Will Not Help”: Rahul On Coronavirus Outbreak

Share This

SONIA-RAHULNEW DELHI : Congress leader Rahul Gandhi called for immediate steps to revive the country’s economy amid the coronavirus pandemic and said there was a need for a big financial package.

He pointed out that the coronavirus outbreak was a serious attack on our fragile economy and took potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for beating of “thalis” in the honour of those working to contain the spread of the virus.
While, Interim Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Saturday raised questions over Modi government’s preparedness for novel Coronavirus outbreak in the country as the total number of positive cases mount to 283.
Gandhi asked that why only 15,701 tests have been conducted across the country? She also said that is government paying no heed to the warning signs from other nations?
Mr Gandhi said clapping would not help the daily wage workers and small and medium entrepreneurs.”The coronavirus is a big attack on our fragile economy. Small and medium entrepreneurs and our daily wage workers are the most affected.
“Clapping will not help them. 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,” the former Congress chief said in a tweet in Hindi.
