Varun Gandhi now questions ‘strong government’ over bank loan fraud cases

In one of the most blunt and direct attacks on his own party government, BJP MP Varun Gandhi said on Friday that a ‘strong’ government should take ‘strong’ action against the ‘super corrupt system’ in which bank loan fraud is charged as Vijay. Mallya, Nirav Modi and Rishi Agarwal are thriving.

The frequency of Varun’s tweets targeting the BJP and its governments has increased in recent months, especially since the Lakhimpur Kheri incident where eight farmers including four were killed, in which the son of Union Minister Ajay Mishra Teni is believed to be involved. .

On Friday, he tweeted in Hindi, “Vijay Mallya — Rs 9,000 crore, Nirav Modi — Rs 14,000 crore, Rishi Agarwal — Rs 23,000 crore. When around 14 people die by suicide in the country due to the burden of debt, the lives of these wealthy people are at the height of their glory. A ‘strong government’ is supposed to take ‘strong action’ against this super corrupt system”.

This is not the first time that Varun has tweeted on the issue of bank loan fraud. Varun’s choice of words (“sarkar majboot“or a strong government and”majboot karyavahi” or strong action) is seen as a direct attack on the government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The ruling BJP has spoken of a “strong government” under Modi taking “strong” action against the corrupt and advancing the country.

The Pilibhit MP’s remarks also come amid the campaign and a day before Punjab heads to the polls.

On February 13, after reports of alleged bank fraud by Agarwal of ABG Shipyard Ltd emerged, he tweeted that if farmers or small traders are unable to repay the loan, even thousands of rupees, their property will be seized or they will be forced to commit suicide, but those who steal thousands of crores easily get bail.

He also criticized the appointment of Santishree Dhulipudi Pandit as Vice-Chancellor of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and said such “poor appointments harm our human capital and the future of our young people”.

Previously touted as the BJP’s counterweight to Congress’ first family, the Gandhi family, Varun belatedly fell out with the leadership and raised issues. He also criticized the management of the economy and wrote about rising unemployment and the problems of farmers.

He criticized the now-repealed controversial Farm Bills and demanded legal support for the Minimum Support Price (MSP). He also wrote to the Prime Minister demanding action against the Minister of State in the Lakhimpur Kheri incident.
