BJP accuses Cong of failing to fulfil promise to waive farm
Bengaluru, Dec 19 (PTI): The Karnataka BJP Unit Wednesday
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
Btw @RahulGandhi waiving off loan isn't like getting
gold from potato's," the state partyunit 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.
"Had your family not slept on the country's development
for 60 years our farmers would have been self sustainable
BTW what is stopping you from waking up CM
@hd_kumaraswamy towaive off farmers loan as promised.
In fact you should learnfrom CM's of Assam & Gujarat,"
