Congress leader Shashi Tharoor questions PMCARES fund

Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor has questioned the creation of the PMCARES fund and hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for setting up separate Covid-19 relief fund.

"This is important. Why not simply rename PMNRF as PM-CARES, given the PM's penchant for catchy acronyms, instead of creating a separate Public Charitable Trust whose rules & expenditure are totally opaque?" he asked.
