The Congress and NCP pioneers have held hands to voice their dissent against the SBI executive’s comment on yield advance waiver. Vikhe-Patil stated, “In spite of our challenge walk to SBI home office in Mumbai, Bhattacharya has not apologized for her comment.” While naming it as an affront and embarrassing, he said. “While no one can scrutinize people’s right to speak freely, the SBI director’s comment expelling crop advance waiver was by implication a remark on the improvement in the state get together and board.”

On Wednesday amid an occasion, Bhattacharya had said, “We feel that in case of a (farm) loan waiver, there is always a fall in credit discipline because the people who get the waiver have expectations of future waivers as well. Such future loans often remain unpaid.”
