"Where are the thousands of rupees which the PM has collected under a new fund. Hasn't the government written off Rs 7.78 lakh crore your super rich owed? But at the same time, you are not willing for a one-time loan waiver of our farmers. The question is of will. If the will is there, the resources are there.

Sitaram Yechury said ( about Sitaram Yechury ) : “We are into the third week of lockdown and extensive testing is still not being done. Merely extending the lockdown will increase the economic misery of people. That should not be allowed to happen. The spread has to be contained through identifying, isolating and sealing areas. That is why it has to be phased withdrawal," Yechury said. The CPM chief also said the Union government announcing a Rs 15,000 crore package for the entire country was entirely inadequate especially when a state like Kerala alone had allocated Rs 20,000 crore to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. "Where are the thousands of rupees which the PM has collected under a new fund. Hasn't the government written off Rs 7.78 lakh crore your super rich owed? But at the same time, you are not willing for a one-time loan waiver of our farmers. The question is of will. If the will is there, the resources are there.

Sitaram Yechury said ( about Sitaram Yechury ) : “We are into the third week of lockdown and extensive testing is still not being done. Merely extending the lockdown will increase the economic misery of people. That should not be allowed to happen. The spread has to be contained through identifying, isolating and sealing areas. That is why it has to be phased withdrawal," Yechury said. The CPM chief also said the Union government announcing a Rs 15,000 crore package for the entire country was entirely inadequate especially when a state like Kerala alone had allocated Rs 20,000 crore to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. "Where are the thousands of rupees which the PM has collected under a new fund. Hasn't the government written off Rs 7.78 lakh crore your super rich owed? But at the same time, you are not willing for a one-time loan waiver of our farmers. The question is of will. If the will is there, the resources are there. If the 112 billionaires in India can contribute 1% if their wealth, there will be no dearth of resources,” External link
