Modi govt wrote off bank loans worth Rs 10 lakh crore by gifting waivers to ‘friends’: Kharge

Senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge on Saturday hit out at the BJP government alleging that the ”suit-boot sarkar” has written off loans worth Rs 10 lakh crore by gifting waivers to ”friends” on a platter.

”2017-18 onwards, this Suit-boot government has written off loan worth 10 lakh crore, making the Public Sector Banks suffer a loss of more than 7 lakh crore,” Kharge said on Twitter.

”Modi ji’s reverse robinhood government policy: Tax heavily and loot middle class. -Gift loan waivers to friends on a platter,” he added. The Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha also shared a written reply to a question asked by him in the House on how much of bank loans were waived off during the last five years.
