THE FUSS ABOUT THE FARMER LOANS AND THE TRIPLE TALAQ ISSUE
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.
