State BJP accuses Cong of failing to fulfil promise to waive farm

Bengaluru: The Karnataka BJP Unit on Wednesday, December 19 accused the Congress of failing to keep up its poll manifesto promise of waiving farmers’ loans even after the lapse of six months since its coalition government with JDS was formed.

6 months on & loan waiver is not a reality in Karnataka. Eventually, farmers of MP, Rajasthan & Chhattisgarh will know about your lying skills. Press statements & tweets don’t really mean loans are waived off, the state party unit said. 

“By the way, Rahul Gandhi waiving off a loan isn’t like getting gold from potato’s,” the state party unit tweeted.

The remarks come in the wake of AICC President Rahul Gandhi’s statement that the Congress had waived farmers’loan and would do so in Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, where the party had won assembly elections.

“CM, Madhya Pradesh, waives farm loans. 1 done. 2 to go,” he had tweeted on December 17.

Soon after winning the elections in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, Chief Ministers Kamal Nath and Bhupesh Baghel announced waiving farmers’ loans.

Gandhi also said the Prime Minister is sleeping over the issue and the party would wake him up from his slumber.

“The Congress party has managed to wake the CM’s of Assam & Gujarat from their deep slumber. PM is still asleep. We will wake him up too,” he had tweeted.

In reply, the Karnataka BJP said in fact, the Congress should learn from Assam and Gujarat chief ministers and urged them to wake Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to waive farmers’ loans as promised.
