On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced an economic package of Rs 20 lakh crore and claimed that the package will help India get to its ultimate goal of being "self-dependent".

"This package is for the farmers, for our middle class who honestly pay taxes and our industry who are determined to take India to heights," he said. "From today onwards, all Indians should be vocal about local. They shouldn't only buy local products but should equally advertise them with pride," he said.

Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh Congress said that Rs 20 lakh crore won't be sufficient and added that at least 50% of the country's GDP should be given as an economic package. "Mr. Modi, This is epidemic, Everything is destroyed," MP Congress tweeted.

However, MP Congress was trolled on Twitter for suggesting 50% of India's GDP should be given as economic package.
