3 important things in CM Bhagwant Mann’s letter

Asked for help in RDF, you asked for loan details
CM Bhagwant Mann wrote that on September 21, the government had sought intervention from the Center in releasing RDF worth Rs 5637 crore. In response to this, on 22 September you had asked for the account of the loan taken by the Punjab Government. The government has taken a loan of Rs 47,107 crore from April 1, 2022 to August 31, 2023. Which includes not only market loans but also NABARD loans. This also includes loans related to projects approved by the Central Government.

Paying interest on loan to your government
While giving the figures of further investment of the loan amount, CM Bhagwant Mann told the Governor that it is clear that Rs 27,016 crore is going only as interest on the loan, which your government has inherited. The government is funding schemes and institutions through loans and its own sources. Which were ignored by the previous governments.

Hope you will be able to convey to PM
The CM wrote to the Governor that from this detail you will be able to understand how your government is struggling with the challenge of inherited debt. With this you will be able to convince the Prime Minister that the government in Punjab is using the loan properly.

At the same time, it is trying its best to improve the financial condition of the state. All this happened at a time when we have given jobs to 36 thousand youth in Punjab. Mann asked the Governor to now convey to the PM to get the pending RDF released.
