In a video interaction Economist Raghuram Rajan told Rahul Gandhi that the government will need around Rs 65,000 crore to help the poor who are bearing the brunt of the coronavirus lockdown. The former RBI chief also said a prolonged lockdown would not be sustainable for the country’s economy. Rajan went on to say that we need to be cleverer in lifting the lockdown.
