THE FUSS ABOUT THE FARMER LOANS AND THE TRIPLE TA­LAQ IS­SUE

Woman's Era - - Editorial -

Each year, be­fore the state and the gen­eral elec­tions, it's a norm for the po­lit­i­cal par­ties to grant cred­its and waiver to the loans. One in­ter­est­ing news that popped up is that the banks are reluc­tant to write off the in­ter­est which is ac­crued on the loans. This would es­sen­tially mean that they lost money in their profit and loss state­ments. The re­cent scheme of the NDA to pro­vide 10 lakhs un­se­cured loans to the ur­ban ar­eas, is no less dif­fer­ent than the farmer loans. In fact they will have the same fate dur­ing the elec­tions, for the waiver, and it has be­come a means to fund the elec­tions for the rul­ing par­ties. It’s the com­mon man money be­ing spent un­wisely. Many of the peo­ple who get th­ese loans are re­ferred to by the po­lit­i­cal lead­ers them­selves.

On the is­sue of Triple Ta­laq, Mus­lim votes which are the match win­ners need to be se­cured by both the rul­ing and the op­po­si­tion coali­tion. Hence it seems that the ju­di­ciary wants to know the cen­tral gov­ern­ment’s view, as per the rul­ing of a high court on a PIL filed on this mat­ter.
