Chhattisgarh Elections: Rahul Gandhi alleges Modi waived loans worth Rs 3.5 lakh crore of select industrialists in 2014

Congress President Rahul Gandhi, on the last day of campaigning for the first phase of the Chhattisgarh Assembly elections, alleged that Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi had waived loans worth Rs. 3.5 lakh crore of select industrialists in 2014.

“In the last four-five years, Modiji gave Rs 3.5 lakh crore to the 15 richest people. While an amount of Rs 35,000 crore is needed yearly to run the MGNREGA scheme in the country, he waived loans worth 10 times that amount of 15 select industrialists,” he was quoted as saying by PTI.

During a public meeting address in Kanker district, Gandhi said he wants to give the keys to the treasury to farmers, youth, poor, women and tribals making Chhattisgarh an agriculture centre in five years.
