Opposition leaders slam PM Modi’s address, ask him to focus on real issues

Several opposition leaders on Friday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s brief video address to the nation and asked him to focus on helping the poor amid the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.

Senior Congress leader and MP Shashi Tharoor said PM Modi’s speech offered no vision for the future on how to ease people’s pain and financial anxieties.

"Listened to the Pradhan Showman. Nothing about how to ease people’s pain, their burdens, their financial anxieties," Tharoor said.
