Why PM CARES, asks Cong.-THE HINDU-31-03-2020
Congress leaders on Monday questioned the setting up of PM CARES Fund to deal with the coronavirus pandemic by Prime Minister Narendra Modi when the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund is already in existence.
Why couldn’t COVID19 donations go to PMNRF? Why was PM CARE created? Why are PM & 3 ministers members of this trust without any opposition or civil society leaders?”asked Congress spokesperson Salman Soz.
“The Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund was established in January 1948 after PM Jawaharlal Nehru made an appeal to assist displaced persons from Pakistan.
