Mumbai: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that the nation is fighting a war against coronaviruses and that two concrete strategies are needed to help two-day labourers to combat the disease.
He took to twitter and said, “Our country is fighting a war with #Coronavirus. Today the question is, what should we do so that fewer people lose their lives? The government has a huge responsibility to control the situation. I believe our strategy should be divided into two parts.”
Stressed that the government needed to stop the spread of coronavirus in urban areas by carrying out a large emergency temporary temporary test and some stages of construction. He said, “Wander off the 19 coves. Large-scale patient testing to prevent isolation and prevent infection. B. Immediate expansion. A large emergency temporary hospital in urban areas. Full ICU facility should be available in these medical areas.” They said. A series of tweets described the two parts.
Pointing to the adverse effects of lockdown, Gandhi said ” Daily wage workers need immediate help. There should be direct cash transfer into their account. Free ration should be available. Any delay in this will be disastrous. Business is at a standstill. There should be tax rebate; financial assistance should be given so that jobs are saved. Small businessmen should get government assurance,” he added.
a. दिहाड़ी मज़दूरों को फ़ौरन सहायता चाहिए।उनके अकाउंट में Direct कैश ट्रांसफ़र हो।राशन मुफ़्त उपलब्ध हो।इसमें कोई भी देरी विनाशकारी होगी।
b. व्यापार ठप है।टैक्स छूट मिले, आर्थिक सहायता भी मिले ताकि नौकरियाँ बच जाएँ।छोटे-बड़े व्यापारियों को ठोस सरकारी आश्वासन मिले।
