'PM Cares Fund' most 'opaque dark fund' in world, says Derek
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress leader, Derek O'Brien speaking in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday referring to the PM CARES Fund as "PM couldn't-care-less" fund—set up in the wake of the pandemic in March by the Prime Minister's office—said that it is the most "opaque dark fund" in the world.
