Finance Minister hits back at Congress for calling economic package announcement 'TV serial'

The Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman reacted sharply on the comments made by Congress over the COVID-19 economic package announcement.

"If Congress can call Govt of India announcing a package at a time like this...one said it's like a TV serial, everyday she comes at 4; other said it's a drama.

I didn't respond to anyone of them.

Even on 5th day when I was announcing, I didn't respond to any of them," said FM during exclusive interview with ANI's Editor Smita Prakash.

Finance Minister further said, "But somebody asked me on migrants, I had to say.

If ours - official press conferences telling what package govt wants to give - is called a drama, stopping migrants when they're walking, at that time you go, sit and have a 'gupshup'.

Don't I have a right to comment on it?"
