Yechury, Kejriwal attack Naidu for comment on farmers
Union minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday came under attack from the Aam Aadmi Party and the CPI (M) for his comment that seeking loan waivers had become a "fashion". While AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal said the comment exposed his bias towards the rich, CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury asked if the government would now term farmer suicides "fashionable". "Will this govt now say that Farmer suicides are also fashionable? We need to do more than loan waivers for our farmers, not mock at them. (sic)," Yechury tweeted.
