PM Modi has announced an economic package of Rs 20 lakh crore to deal with the Corona disaster, which is 10 percent of India’s GDP. This amount is a combination of previous and today’s package.
The PM said that detailed information about this package will be given later. He said that this economic package is for that laborer of the country, for that farmer of the country who is working day and night for the countrymen in every situation, every season. This economic package is for the middle class of our country, which pays taxes honestly, contributes to the development of the country.
We have to avoid corona and also move forward
PM Modi said that we have to avoid corona and also move forward. He said that such a big disaster has brought a message and an opportunity for India. He said that I want to say with an example that when the Corona crisis started, there was not a single PPE kit made in India nor the N95 mask was produced. But today the situation is that 2 lakh PPE and 2 lakh N-95 masks are being made in India every day. We are able to do this because we have turned disaster into an opportunity.
