According to reports, the government has termed PM Cares Fund as a government trust for receiving corporate donations. However, a clause in the trust documents calls it a private entity and that it is exempted from RTI scrutiny.

On Wednesday, in a series of tweets, Surjewala asked why did Indian Embassies publicise and receive a donation to PM Cares Fund and why the advertisement of the fund was placed on banned Chinese apps.

In a series of tweets, Surjewala said, "The intriguing case of 'foreign donations', including from China, Pakistan and Qatar to PM Cares Fund! Questions to Prime Minister - Why did Indian Embassies publicise and receive a donation to PM Cares Fund? Why was the fund advertised on banned Chinese apps?"

Earlier, the Lok Sabha had witnessed heated exchanges over the PM Cares Fund while 'The Taxation and Other Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2020' was passed by voice vote.
