There are a thousand people ready to fund in the PM-CARES fund but the industry, which you belong to, you should donate there first. You are giving Rs 25 crore to the PM-CARES fund to come in the good books of the Prime Minister but there's not been a single phone call yet to make any donation for the federation workers," said Tiwari, adding Salman has asked for a complete list of daily wage workers with their account numbers, becasue he wishes to directly transfer funds to each worker.
