#Kolkata: A virtual lockdown has been issued in the state. Not only that, in the whole country, different states have taken the path of lockdown to stop corona. Ordinary working people can suffer in this condition. The state of the unemployed. This time, thinking about them, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, the President of the Provincial Congress, sent a letter to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In a letter to the Prime Minister on Sunday, Adhir wrote that lockdown is going on in different states of the country. And the poor of the country in the face of difficult times in this situation. The biggest impact has been on those who work for a daily wage. They don’t have a job now. Their families in the face of tragic situations. These people think of themselves as abandoned by society and are frustrated.
Referring to the issue of lockdown in the country last year, Adhir wrote that even then the poor people of the country had to struggle in this way. This time the Congress has made a new plan to stand by the poor and unemployed people of the country. On the advice of the party’s all-India president, Adhir Chowdhury appealed to Prime Minister Modi to give Rs 6,000 a month directly to unemployed people and free food. He is eager to transfer the money to their bank account every month.
In the letter, Adhir Chowdhury, president of the provincial Congress, mentioned Sonia Gandhi’s proposal. It is to be mentioned that Sonia recently demanded that besides providing free food grains to the unemployed people in the lockdown, they should also be given Tk 6,000 per month. Referring to the issue, Adhir Chowdhury requested the central government to take immediate action. He demanded to send money to the bank accounts of poor people. He demanded that the aid be handed over to the poor in the states where corona lockdown is going on, including West Bengal. Adhir Chowdhury reminded Modi, “If the government takes this financial assistance initiative, not only those poor families will benefit, but also the country’s economy.”
This is not the first time, however, he has written several more letters to Modi a few days ago. Adhir Chowdhury has touched on various issues, requesting Narendra Modi to stay by the side of the state government from setting up an oxygen plant in Murshidabad Medical College. He also requested West Bengal to provide adequate vaccination. At the same time, he raised the question of where the allocation of Rs 35,000 crore for vaccination went.
