WAIVER WARS

India Today - - UPFRONT -

Ma­ha­rash­tra chief min­is­ter Deven­dra Fad­navis’s enor­mous Rs 34,000 crore farm loan waiver in June may have taken the wind out of the op­po­si­tion Congress-NCP’s sails. Be­fore they could gather their wits, Fad­navis has hit them with more sta­tis­tics. The Con­gressNCP, he re­vealed, had spent Rs 1.2 crore on ad­ver­tis­ing their Rs 9,000 crore loan waiver for farm­ers in 2009 while his gov­ern­ment had spent only Rs 36 lakh so far on ad­ver­tis­ing. A case of my write­off is bet­ter than yours.
