Rahul Gandhi to Centre: Stop acting like money lender, reconsider economic package

rahul-gandhi

NEW DELHI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said the Centre should stop acting like a "money lender" for its children by giving them credit instead of cash, and asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to reconsider the Covid-19 economic stimulus package.

Interacting with journalists of regional media via video conferencing, he said he was trying to put pressure on the government for generating demand by putting money into the accounts of the poor and vulnerable sections of society.

Gandhi said a 'storm' was brewing on the economic front that will cause damage and hurt many. "The storm has not come yet, it is coming and will cause big economic damage and hurt many," he said.

The Congress leader asserted that if demand is not generated, the country will suffer a bigger loss economically than from coronavirus. He also said that it is important to lift the lockdown intelligently without sacrificing the old and vulnerable population to the disease.
