Sonia Gandhi praises Modi for Corona measures

Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Thursday signalled her distancing from the often condescending, critical and nitpicking tone of many of her colleagues, including Rahul Gandhi, and offered PM Narendra Modi her and the party`s full solidarity and cooperation as India combats the Covid-19 challenge. Gandhi,  in her second letter to the PM on Thursday, declared that “it is imperative for everyone to rise above partisan interests and honour their duties towards the country and humanity. Her new suggestions, besides pleading the case of the vulnerable sections and health sector workers, also included a pitch for helping the distressed businesses, especially micro-small medium businesses through “a comprehensive sector-wise package, including necessary tax breaks, interest subvention and deferment of liabilities”.
