Stop availing loan for agriculture & using it for wedding: Siddaramaiah

Chamarajanagar, Sep 27 (IANS): Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday said that "it was unhealthy to have a grand wedding using borrowed money", and asked people to stop availing agricultural loans and using it for marriages.

He was speaking at a mass marriage organised by the Shri Malai Mahadeswaraswamy development authority on Wednesday.

"Lavish weddings are a huge burden for the poor and the middle class. You have to pay the debt for the rest of your life. Therefore, simple and collective marriages should be more and more common," he said.

Mahadeshwara hill is a sacred place of spiritual significance, a spiritual center for working class, poor and all other castes. "This is why I have the utmost respect and devotion to this temple. When I first became the Chief Minister, I created the Malai Mahadeshwara Development Authority. Now the revenue of the authority has also increased,” he said.

He appreciated that as a result of the Shakti scheme, devotees, especially women, were coming in large numbers and having darshan of Malai Madeshwara.

The chief minister made an important announcement that the image of Malai Mahadeshwara region will be changed in the next five years.

    more things related to this. people borrow agricultural loan for zero percent interest ( even the principal amount is likely to be waived lateral " saala manna" ) keep the same fund as FD in nationalised bank. Even if there is no need, many "agriculturists" having some agricultural land, but living lavishly with other sources of income also borrow " saala manna loans. Many with black income convert into tax free agricultural income. In same house mother in law & daughter in law have two ration cards & get two "Naari" Rs 2000/- PM in same house. Father & son have two small land adjacent to each other & both get famers fund given by central government. Many "agriculturists" are maintaining agriculust tag for all these benefits in addition to subsidy. Honest farmers & middle class salaried people get only " chombu" No government is thinking about salaried tax paying middle class people ( even if someone is getting 10 -12 lakhs Per year at bangalore , his family is struggling with fee, medical bills , rent etc.) Whereas " agriculturists" have better living with many side business, no tax, all subsidies, benefits & black incomes.

    Very sensible article. Marriages not made in heaven anymore. Lavish spending is a waste. Instead keeping the money in an asset form for the married couple is more useful.

    People are taking loan not only for wedding purposes but also construction houses or renovations and diverting to other purposes. Mostly luxurious living.
