Congress leader P. Chidambaram briefs over FM Nirmala Sitharaman's stimulus package

Senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram addresses on the stimulus package announced earlier in the day by FM Nirmala Sitharaman. He says, " Last year, the first quarter of 2019, recorded a growth rate of 5.2%. While the first quarter of this year recorded -23.9%. Similarly, the second quarter of 2019-20, it recorded a growth of 4.4%. and the second quarter of this year is expected to record -8.6%. There is nothing to be pleased about the recession. This means we are not able to catch up. With even the growth rates recorded in the corresponding quarters of 2019-20, I am afraid that the remaining 2 quarters of 2020-21 will also record negative growth rates."
