Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Varun Gandhi criticized the government on Saturday over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “muft ke revdi” (free gift) suspension, saying loans of up to 10 million rupees had been ceded to corrupt businessmen in the past five years.
Gandhi said in a Hindi-language tweet on Twitter that Mohul Choksi and Rishi Agarwal top the list of those who received ‘Muft Ki Revedi’, and shared a government response in Parliament on the top 10 lagging firms. Choksi and Agarwal are associated with two of these companies.
“The same parliament which expects the poor to express their thanks for receiving five kilograms of grain, also says that bad loans of Rs 10,000 crore to corrupt businessmen have been waived in the past five years. Who has the first right to the government treasury?” asked Gandhi. .
He was apparently referring to the remarks of another Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) parliamentarian during a debate in Parliament that Modi has been providing free food grains to 80 crore poor people since the COVID-19 outbreak. The MP said that the government deserves to be commended for that.
The Prime Minister sparked a discussion Recently, by criticizing some political parties for offering “the mufti to apostatize” for electoral gain. This is very harmful to the country’s development, he said.
