Some states do not issue BG to sweets linked to parties Oppn: Shah

Home Affairs and Union Cooperation Minister Amit Shah on Saturday made a veiled remark against the MVA government in Maharashtra, saying bank guarantees were not issued to some sugar factories with links to the rulers opposition parties.

Shah was speaking at a meeting related to the cooperation sector in Ahmednagar district, some 250 kilometers from here.

I am not here to break something but to join the missing links. However, I have seen that some state governments do not give bank guarantees to sugar factories whose leadership is politically linked to opposition parties. Why can’t governments sort out their sugar-related issues within the relevant state instead of pushing us to hold hearings in New Delhi, ”Shah said.

“This practice is not fair. The state government must rise above politics. I am not going to be a silent bystander in this area. Maharashtra’s cooperation movement is as sacred as Kashi for a lot of people, “he said, adding that he would observe what cooperative societies were doing rather than” who runs it and their political leanings. “

Shah, while saying that the cooperation sector needs to be modernized and competitive, said that Maharashtra district central cooperative banks were praised for their good performance before, but most of them are now poorly. managed.

It is corruption that has paralyzed these banks and not the RBI (rules and regulations), he added.

By the way, Ahmednagar District has the distinction of having established Asia’s first cooperative sugar refinery, which is currently run by Congressman-turned-BJP Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil.
