Will launch protest if debt-waiver not implemented in Pb: SAD

Press Trust of India  |  Chandigarh 

Opposition SAD today said it would protest in and outside the if the state fails to announce a complete farm loan-waiver during the ongoing budget session.

The SAD also castigated the Speaker for allegedly running the ongoing session in a "partisan manner".

Former minister and senior SAD leader Parminder Singh Dhindsa said, Chief Minister had given an assurance he would implement the loan-waiver but "it seems he is not sure about it".

"Instead of giving an unequivocal statement on the issue in the Assembly today, he (Amarinder) started talking about lack of funds and even that he could not be pressured into doing anything," Dhindsa said.

It indicated that the is trying to run away from a complete loan-waiver as promised, he added.

"We want the to implement a complete loan waiver of all institutional loans of nationalized and and cooperative institutions and also non- institutional loans of commission agents. Anything less than this will be unacceptable," he added.

He said despite repeated requests and written submissions, the Speaker did not allow the SAD to move an adjournment motion on the issue of loan waiver.
