An editorial in Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ criticized Modi’s provision of a Line of Credit of USD 1 billion to Mongolia calling the country more fortunate than Maharashtra.
Sena said that the move will aggravate the pain of the farmers’ soul who have committed suicide in the recent past, stating that the Prime Minister should show the same eagerness to help distressed farmers of Maharashtra.
“What was the need for such a huge amount for Mongolia at a time when Indian currency is falling against the US dollar? Why can`t the PM now show the same eagerness to help farmers of Maharashtra and those being affected by his dream of starting a nuclear energy plant in Jaitapur?,” it said.
The Prime Minister had announced that India will provide a Line of Credit to support expansion of Mongolia’s economic capacity and Infrastructure during his visit.
