New Delhi, March 21 Describing the coronavirus crisis in the country as a huge blow to the economy, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi slammed the Modi government over its preparations to combat the pandemic, saying “clapping” would not help as a huge economic package is needed to help the people.

In a tweet, Rahul Gandhi said, “Coronavirus is wreaking havoc on our fragile economy. Small, medium businessmen and daily wage workers are the worst affected. Clapping won”t help them. Today, a huge economic package is needed such as cash help, tax breaks and debt repayment. Take quick steps.”

The Prime Minister has appealed to the people to “clap” as a mark of gratitude towards the health workers.

Modi, during his special address to the nation on Thursday said people must come at their balconies or outside their doors at 5 p.m. on Sunday during the ”Janata curfew” from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and clap their hands or sound utensils for five minutes to thank those at the forefront of combating Covid-19.

  1. Well said, like a wise leader.
    Bol Bachchan Gujju policy won’t help, need RBI funds in billion for free qualified healthcare and free testing for “sham NPR 140 crore doubtful citizens” !

  2. Very true need solid help to poor people specially daily wage workers, small business and medium business, so that they can survive this corona virus onslaught.
    from mere talks nothing will happen.
