Loan waiver: Cong wants Centre to toe line

Congress party workers on Thursday celebrated the decision of the state government to waive farm loans advanced by cooperative banks.

The party workers, led by their district committee president Dr D L Vijaykumar, who gathered at Azad Park circle here, welcomed the decision of the state government with jubilation. “It is one of the good decisions and now, the ball is in the court of the BJP to exert pressure on the Central government to toe the line. Or else, the party will lead a protest march against the central government under the banner of ‘Delhi Chalo’,” he warned.

Chairman of Jungle Lodges and Resorts Limited A N Mahesh said that the recent decision of the government has proved the party’s commitment towards farmers. The BJP-led Central government has ignored farmers, while the capitalists have already taken the benefits of loan waiver.

Former MLC Gayatri Shanthegowda, Chikkamagaluru Urban Development Authority chairman Mohammed Hanif, block Congress committee president H P Manjegowda, Youth Congress president Shivakumar were present on the occasion.
