‘No banker wants to lend. That is the hard truth’

P Chidambaram, @PChidambaram_IN – Former Union Finance Minister:

  • After accusing bankers of doing telephone banking and hounding them for six years, government does not have the humility to say “we were wrong, we are sorry”
  • Government has suddenly discovered that ‘loans granted after appropriate appraisal can turn out to be non-performing’
  • How many upright bankers were investigated, humiliated and even arrested in the last six years?
  • No banker wants to lend. That is the hard truth. Nothing that the BJP government will do now — including ring fencing — will revive the culture of lending that has been practically destroyed

‘The scrapping of AP’s Legislative Council has left TDP completely baffled’

Vijayasai Reddy V, @VSReddy_MP – National General Secretary @YSRCParty
  • NCBN‘s hue and cry over scrapping of AP’s Legislative Council is because the move has handicapped TDP’s misadventures, on its efforts to influence and derail AP’s development in their own favor, and now has left them completely baffled.
  • After the people of our state voted Babu out of power for all his misdeeds, he has been desperate to try & block any good or pro-development initiatives for Andhra.
  • If there was an Olympics for wickedness, misleading & cheating then Chnadrababu Naidu & TDP would win the gold in all categories, and break world-records for betrayal, lies, and corruption.
