Govt relief  Package gets  thumbs up from Rahul Gandhi stating

The government's bailout package to soften the impact of coronavirus today got a rare thumbs-up from Rahul Gandhi, who called it the "first step in the right direction" in a tweet. This is hours after his mother and Congress president Sonia Gandhi wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi pledging full support to the government in the fight against the deadly virus.

"The government announcement today of a financial assistance package is the first step in the right direction. India owes a debt to its farmers, daily wage earners, laborers, women and the elderly who are bearing the brunt of the ongoing lockdown," the Congress MP tweeted, in a marked change from his previous posts targeting the government.
