P Chidambaram – Former Union Finance Minister:
- Minister Gadkari says that governments and PSUs owe Rs 5 lakh crore as unpaid dues to MSMEs.
- Minister Sitharaman says she will offer collateral free loan of Rs 3 lakh crore to MSMEs (numbering 45 lakhs)
- So, who is the lender and who is the borrower?!
- Will the two ministers ‘settle their accounts’ first and let MSMEs save themselves without government’s ‘help’?
