In a video, Ahmad said, “I think PM’s Atmanirbhar Mission is very important in terms of directions and India is not making a distinction between life and livelihoods in the aftermath of Covid-19.”

He added, “Social distancing has led to the slowdown of the economy. Government of India has focussed on Garib Kalyan Yojna to help poor and vulnerable as a bridge between the health interventions is happening and where the economy can be revived.”

World bank informed that the multi-billion-dollar social protection package was in addition to the previous package of dollar 1 billion allocated to India for coronavirus emergency response and health systems.

The first pilar is Economy, an economy that will bring quantum jump, not incremental change; the second pillar- Infrastructure that can be the identity of modern India; third pillar- System which will be based on technology-driven processes able to fulfil 21st-century dreams, not rules and regulations of last century; fourth pillar- our Democracy, as the world’s largest and the vibrant democracy is the strength of India; and the fifth pillar- Demand, the cycle of demand and supply in our economy is our strength, and it should be used to its full potential.”
