While Congress Minister Rahul Gandhi has stated this new relief package announced by FM Nirmala Sitharaman as nothing but “another scam.”
FM के ‘आर्थिक पैकेज’ को कोई परिवार अपने रहने-खाने-दवा-बच्चे की स्कूल फ़ीस पर ख़र्च नहीं कर सकता।— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) June 29, 2021
पैकेज नहीं, एक और ढकोसला!
Reacting to the official announcement made of the Corona Relief Package, the Congress chief tweeted in Hindi that “No family can spend FM’s ‘economic package’ on their living, food, medicine, child’s school fees. It is not a package but another sham.”
