Navjot Sidhu posts video, says Manmohan Singh solely PM who waived loans of farmers

Chandigarh, December 16

Senior Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on Thursday retweeted an old video of his press conference where he had targeted certain corporates alleging the Modi government had gone out of the way to benefit them.

In the video, Sidhu said while former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had waived loans of farmers worth Rs 72,000 crore, the Modi regime had only allegedly befooled the peasants with a fake promise of doubling their income. Forget double income, the farmers had been struggling on the roads to retain whatever meagre income they currently had, he alleged.

The cricketer-turned-politician also alleged the corporates whom the NDA government was trying to align with the farmers through contract farming had set bad precedents of “fleecing”.

He cited how the corporates allegedly harmed the economic interests of their rivals with “government patronage”.
