Janata Dal-Secular leader and former Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy on Tuesday accused the central government of writing off loans of those who are facing charges of fraud.

 

In a series of tweets, Kumaraswamy questioned the patriotism and nationalism of the BJP government at the Centre and reminded Prime Minister Narendra Modi of his slogan 'Na Khaunga, Na Khaane Dunga'.

"Really? At a time when the whole world is worried about unprecedented economic emergency, writing off Rs 68,000 crore loans of willful big fish defaulters became the best antidote to the economic crisis? And how is 50k crore package to mutual funds going to help the common man?" he tweeted.

In another tweet, Kumaraswamy said that "Billionaire scamsters like Vijay Mallya, Mehul Choksy, Sanjay Junjunwala seem to be very dear to this government".

"Na khaunga, na khane dunga" is yet another jumla unraveled. Billionaire scamsters like Vijay Malya, Mehul Choksy, Sanjay Junjunwala seem to be very dear to this government”, he said.

Kumaraswamy further alleged that the government has done litte to help the poor dying by the roadside, desparate farmers and the middle class faced with economic doom following the COVID-19 lockdown.

“The poor are dying by the roadside, farmers are desperate, the middle class is faced with economic doom. The government has done little to help. But it writes off loans of those who are facing charges of fraud! What patriotism! What nationalism!" he tweeted.
