Niti Aayog meet: HD Kumaraswamy asks Centre to give 50% for farm loan waiver scheme 18.6.2018 DNA: Top News
Using Niti Aayog's stage to his advantage, Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy put the ball in Centre's court by seeking 50 per cent assistance to his government's farm loan waiver scheme. "Debt of farmers is staring us in the face. My government is ready to address this problem and I request the Government of India to support us," Kumaraswamy said. In the midst of farmers' protests and increasing rate of suicides, farm loan waiver has become a big issue nationwide, including in Karnataka, before the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. However, given the precarious situation of the economy, Modi government is finding it difficult to indulge in any kind of loan waiver. "We need full support of the Government of India for this... While we represent various political ideologies, when it comes to development we should work together," he said addressing PM Modi. Kumaraswamy said he is sure the NITI Aayog will prove its federal character given the developmental disparities in India, and added that Niti Aayog and the ...

Congress will go alone in Rajasthan Assembly Election; don’t need an alliance: Sachin Pilot 3.6.2018 DNA: Top News
How has the Rajasthan government handled the farmer’s unrest and debt issue? 150 farmers have already committed suicide in the state and the government has turned a blind eye to the farmer problem. The unavailability of water compounded with debt management has affected farmers in the past three years. Do you think that the rural distress as an issue can also resonate in Madhya Pradesh? Both Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan are suffering from an agrarian distress. The BJP hasn’t paid sufficient attention to the farmer issue. The Congress has not forgotten Mandasaur incident, which is why Congress President Rahul Gandhi visited the place to mark the death anniversary of the farmers who were shot during last year’s agitation. The farmer resentment will be seen during the elections. Is Kairana (in Uttar Pradesh) a roadmap for the Opposition for the coming Lok Sabha election? To an extent, yes, but every state has a different dynamic and alliances will form keeping that in mind. The UPA President (Sonia Gandhi) ...

Kannada bodies mount pressure on CM to waive farm loan 28.5.2018 General News
Mounting pressure on the three-day old Kumaraswamy government in Karnataka, a group of pro-Kannada organisations have demanded that the chief minister waive farm loans and give a compensation of Rs 25 lakh to each family of those farmers who committed suicide. The president of Kannada Okkoota (federation), Vatal Nagaraj today wrote to the chief minister and asked him to immediately waive farm loans. He said many farmers committed suicide for failing to repay their loans. Nagaraj told PTI that the Okkoota would give a week's time till the cabinet is formed and then it would intensify its pressure on the government to waive farm loans. He flayed chief minister Kumaraswamy's statement that that he was at the "mercy" of Congress and not the people of state. "A chief minister should never give a statement like that. It is unacceptable. All through the election campaign he was saying that he will waive farm loans and now he is saying that he is under the obligation of Congress

7 reasons which led to Congress debacle in Karnataka 15.5.2018 DNA: Opinion
The comprehensive trends are in and people of Karnataka have again decided to boot out the ruling regime, something they have been doing since 1985. Contrary to media reports and prediction from pollsters, Siddaramaiah failed to hold on to his bastion. Outgoing Karnataka CM even lost from one of the two seats he contested. So, what gives this dramatic Congress downfall in a state which they expected to win or at least emerge as the single largest party.  1. Siddaramaiah's Lingayat gamble backfires spectacularly This is probably one of the biggest takeaway from the election that a sensitive issue shouldn't be handled in a hurried, ham-handed manner just before the polls. Siddaramaiah played devious politics by granting Lingayat's minority status just months before the elections. It hoped to breach into BJP's traditional support base among Lingayats. What happened in reality is a massive tsunami of support for the saffron outfit among the Lingayat community with the saffron party is poised to win over 70% ...
