Five opposition ruled states have sought close to ₹2.25 lakh crore from the Centre to overcome the financial stress due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Maharashtra has sought ₹50,000 crore; Chhattisgarh, ₹30,000 crore; Kerala, ₹80,000 crore; Rajasthan, ₹40,000 crore and West Bengal ₹25,000 crore. Tamil Nadu, governed by BJP-ally AIADMK, has sought ₹9,000 crore. Many states, such as Punjab, Kerala and Maharashtra, have said that they will not be able to pay salaries of employees for the month of April if Centre fails to help.
