CM slams Shuklas reply over RBIs NPA writeoff

first_imgKolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has reacted sharply to the answer given by Shiv Pratap Shukla, Minister of State for Finance, regarding writing off of Non-Performing Assets by the Reserve Bank of India.The question on whether Rs 2.4 lakh crore of Public Sector Banks (PSBs) crony corporate loans have been written off by the present Union government till September 2017, was raised by Ritabrata Bandyopadhyay, expelled CPI-M Rajya Sabha MP on Tuesday. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsBanerjee tweeted: “I am shocked to see that at a time when the farmers in the country are crying and committing suicide for their loan burden and asking for waiver of farmer loans, the government of India has not even considered that.”On the contrary, the government of India has decided to write off non-performing assets of public sector banks to the tune of Rs 2,41,911 crore, from the financial year 2014-15 till September 2017.”This is unbelievable. We had raised the issue of non-performing assets right at the time of demonetisation. Now the cat is out of the bag and reality bites. Even in Parliament reply, the government says that the details of credit information by a PSB cannot be disclosed. Why is this confidentiality? Whom is the government trying to protect? We demand immediate disclosure of the complete list of defaulters of PSBs whose loans have been written off. Is it not a big big big scam?” the Chief Minister said.Welcoming Banerjee’s tweet, Bandyopadhyay tweeted: “There’s the Bengal tigress. Always loud and clear for the people’s rights. All democratic and secular forces and people must strengthen the hand of Didi in the fight for saving the country.”last_img read more

The reverse side of the comparison grid highlights signature elements like onboard experiences, signature experiences ashore and cruise components included in Tauck’s prices.The 24-page River Cruising Sales Guide provides an in-depth explanation of the ‘Four Cornerstones’ that differentiate the company’s river cruises: comprehensive all-inclusive pricing; high service levels provided by the Tauck Cruise Director and three Tauck Directors staffing each Tauck riverboat; the destination experience; and the onboard atmosphere.More news:  Sunwing ready to launch Mazatlán-Quebec City direct this winterAlso featured in the Sales Guide are details on the typical Tauck river cruise customer, suggestions on different client-types that agents might successfully target, an FAQ and conversion strategies to help agents grow their Tauck river cruise business.The company is also encouraging its agents to gain first-hand experience on Tauck’s river cruises (and its land tours) by enhancing its Agent Rewards travel incentive program.
