Mongolia more fortunate than Maha, says Sena
The Shiv Sena on Wednesday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement of a credit line of $1 billion to Mongolia and asked why he can’t show the same eagerness to help the distressed farmers of Maharashtra reeling under debt.
The move, Sena said, will only aggravate the pain of the farmers’ soul who <g data-gr-id="22">have</g> committed suicide in the recent past. “The PM has announced a $1 billion aid to <g data-gr-id="21">Mongolia,</g> so that relations between the two countries can be further cemented. The PM has taken moral responsibility for development of this small nation. But, this is not a small amount. This will only aggravate the pain of souls of farmers who have committed suicide,” the Sena said in an editorial in its mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.
The NDA government’s ally at the Centre said Modi has announced credit to a foreign country at a time when hapless farmers, who are reeling under debt from banks and private moneylenders are waiting for financial aid from government.
“We can call Mongolia more fortunate than Maharashtra to have received aid from India because our PM has shown them the financial soundness of the country by giving away such a huge amount,” it said.
Sena also questioned the motive of the PM and asked why can’t he show the same eagerness to help the distressed farmers of the state.
