Poojary challenges Centre to waive farmer loans

Former Union finance minister B Janardhan Poojary charged BJP and JD(S) of playing politics with farmers’ problems and challenged Centre to waive the loans of farmers if they have real concern over farmers. The UPA government had waived Rs 72,000 crore loans of farmers.

Now, all MPs from the State including Yeddyurappa, Shobha Karandlaje and H D Deve Gowda should demand for the same.

Briefing reporters, on Saturday, he said the murder complaint against chief minister regarding the suicide of three farmers in Mandya is intolerable. Former chief ministers B S Yeddyurapppa or H D Kumaraswamy can only tell who are behind these complaints. The CM has come from farming community and knows their difficulties. The State government has spent around Rs 22,000 crore on irrigation, waived farmers’ loans and distributed free rice to BPL card holders, which was never done during H D Kumaraswamy’s tenure, he said.

FIRs have been filed against B S Yeddyurappa and HDK, and they want to divert the attention of people. The padayatra of HDK is part of it, but people are not fools, Poojary said. On the statement of Horticulture  & Agro Marketing Minister Shamanur Shivashankarappa against seizing sugar from factories, Poojary said Shivashankarappa is aged.

Janardhan Poojary said no one is No 1 MP by spending Rs 5 crore grant of the government. The true achievement is fighting for people inside and outside Parliament and Parliament itself recognises your achievement.

What is the performance of BJP or Deve Gowda in Parliament…What they have done for farmers? If you put flexes for publicity, people are not fools to believe it, he said.  

Janardhana Poojary opined that all parties have corrupt politicians except communist party.

He came down heavily against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and alleged that Modi, who had promised of corruption-free administration is now protecting corrupts and criminals. In spite of knowing that Lalit Modi was a criminal, involved in black money transfer and who violated Prevention of Corruption Act, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has supported him.

Whether she asked about Enforcement Directorate investigation or took permission from the prime minister, he asked.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje submitted an affidavit in support of Lalit Modi blaming Indian government and its law. Its nothing but sedition. Vasundhara Raje and Sushma Swaraj should resign. Why the Prime Minister is mum about these issues and not asking resignation of Vasundhara Raje. They used to call Manmohan Singh as ‘Mouni’, but what happened to Modi? Is he doing Yoga, he asked.

Maharastra Women and Child Development Minister Pankaja Munde is involved in 206 crore scam and distributed 24 contracts in 24 hours without tender. Madhya Pradesh CM Shivaraj Singh Chauhan is facing the heat of Vyapam scam, where engineering and medical entrance test norms were violated. Out of 2,536 accused in the case, BJP leader Uma Bharati, RSS leaders Sudarshan and Suresh Seni are also involved. Around 36 accused in the case have been died in suspicious circumstances, he said.
