Rahul Gandhi welcomes and lauds Centre’s financial assistance package

New Delhi: Soon after Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Thursday unveiled a 1.7 lakh crore financial package amid coronavirus lockdown, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has happily accepted, terming it “first step in the right direction.”

Gandhi took to Twitter and said, “The Govt announcement today of a financial assistance package, is the first step in the right direction. India owes a debt to its farmers, daily wage earners, labourers, women & the elderly who are bearing the brunt of the ongoing lockdown.”

Earlier on Thursday, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi had wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi extending support to the lockdown and had said, “It has imperiled lives and put at risk the lives and livelihoods of millions, particularly, the most vulnerable sections of our society. The entire nation stands as one in solidarity in the fight to halt and defeat the Corona pandemic.”
