Mumbai, Apr 26: Mumbai state BJP President Nitin Gadkari today dubbed the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report pulling up the state government on farmers issue as a slap on the Democratic Front (DF) government and demanded white paper on farm loans.
"The CAG report is a slap on the Congress-NCP Democratic Front gvernment. When the prime minister's package was declared at that time, it was not the farmers who benefitted by the package but the banks owned by the NCP members," he said.
The money was mainly meant to revive the banks which were on the verge of collapse. Now the CAG has also in its report flayed the government for it, he added
