An agitation has been scheduled to ask the Central Government about the beneficiary of the ‘Lockdown package’ announced by the Prime Minister on May 12.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced a special package of Rs 20 lakh crore to offset the losses incurred during the lockdown. The Youth Congress (IYC) has launched an agitation to find out how much it has benefited in the last three months. However, they will hold the Center accountable about the mash-up and will ask PM Modi ‘Where did the 20 lakh crore go?’. Mira Bhayandar Youth Congress President Deep Kakade informed that the agitation will be held at Golden Nest Circle from 10:30 am onwards on Friday.
Youth Congress will carry out this agitation uniquely. “The agitation will be conducted in the form of satyagraha. It will be conducted peacefully, with due respect to the lockdown guidelines. Senior will guide us.” Kakade said.
“Members of the Youth Congress met several people from different walks of life. They asked them, whether the package befitted them. They started with farmers. Youth Congress visited different small scale industries, for this. Members collected the information from them. We will dispatch this data to the central government. We will question them, where did the Rs 20 lakh crores had gone?” informed the Youth Congress President.
Kakade appealed to those who are participating in the satyagraha, should wear the mask and come on time. “For moral support, members of Indian National Congress’s Mira Bhayandar unit will present there,” said Kakade.
