Protest against fuel price rise complete success :BSP

The ruling Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in Uttar Pradesh today claimed its nation-wide agitation, barring the state, against the price hike of petroleum products evoked a complete response.

The Mayawati-led BSP had already carried out demonstrations in UP against the rise in prices of petrol and diesel on July 6.

According to a BSP release here, the protest was a complete success across the nation, where party activists participated in a large scale at party offices.

The agitators castigated the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre for its weak policies, leading to rise in prices of petroleum products.

The prices of petrol and diesel have been raised for the third time since 2008.

The BSP chided the UPA favouring the capitalists and ignoring the rights of the common men

Bangalore: The BSP workers on Thursday held a protest against the rise in fuel prices and demanded their rollback in front of Town Hall.

Ashok Siddharth, an MLC from Uttar Pradesh in-charge of Karnataka BSP who participated along with State Preesident Marasandra Muniappa, Vice-President N Mahesh, GenSec Gopinath, Treasurer Koramangala Muniappa, Off Sec R Muniappa and large number of BSP workers, said the increase has pushed up prices of essential commodities.

“The Congress Government has reneged on its electoral promises,” he said.

Participation of banks in schemes implemented for all round development of State very important

Chief Minister

Owing to indifference of banks credit-deposit ratio of State considerably lower than national average

Lucknow: 06 July 2010

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Ms. Mayawati requested

the Union Finance Minister to direct the banks to increase the

credit-deposit ratio (CDR) of the State. She said that the banks,

functioning in the State, had been investing the savings of the

State in the development of other states, while as per the

parameters set by the Reserve Bank of India the same should

be utilised for the development of the State. She said that the

banks should prepare an ambitious plan to accelerate the

disbursal of advances, so that the CDR comes at par with the

national average.

The Medical and Health Minister Mr. Anant Kumar Mishra

read out the written statement of the Chief Minister Ms.

Mayawati at a meeting of Chief Ministers and C.E.O.s of banks

and financial institutions of the North Zone at Chandigarh

today. The meeting was headed by the Union Finance Minister.

It may be recalled that owing to her pre scheduled

appointments, the C.M. could not participate in the meeting.

The C.M. said that owing to the indifference of the banks,

the CDR of the State was much below the national average for

past several decades, while the same for other states like

Chandigarh stood at 141 per cent, Tamil Nadu 112 per cent,

Andhra Pradesh 105 per cent and Maharashtra 83 per cent. For

the neighbouring state of M.P., the CDR stood at 59 per cent,

Rajasthan 85 per cent, Punjab 65 per cent and Haryana 63 per

cent. She said that even though the agriculture and industry

sector of Uttar Pradesh offered wide possibilities of consumption

of loan, yet low CDR by banks was a cause of concern. She

requested that this problem should be solved on priority basis.

Ms. Mayawati said that the participation of banks in the

ongoing developmental schemes of the State had become very

important at present. She said that the poor people of the rural

areas should be provided loans liberally to ensure their rapid

uplift and also their all round development.

The Chief Minister said that the NABARD prepared loan

schemes for all the districts of the State on the basis of

Potential Link Plan every year. A loan target of Rs. 45,250 crore

had been set up for the top priority areas of the State under the

annual loan scheme for the last financial year. The RBI had

allocated a loan distribution target of 18 per cent for the

agriculture sector in the areas of priority. In the light of the

directives of the RBI, loans worth Rs. 29,055 crore were

distributed against a loan target of Rs. 29,548 crore for the

agriculture sector. She said that the State Government had

made more budgetary arrangements for providing fertilisers,

hybrid seeds and irrigation facilities to the farmers to ensure

their economic development.

Ms. Mayawati said that the State Government had taken

the initiative to double the income of the farmers. Under the

crop loan programme, mega camps were organised at

development block/Tehsil level for distributing Kisan Credit

Card/crop loan. She said that 27.58 lakh kisan credit card were

distributed against the target of 29.65 lakh in the last financial

year. This data had made it clear that banks were not taking

effective action in this direction. She requested that Finance

Ministry should issue the directives to banks for distributing

kisan credit cards according to the fixed target.

Referring to micro/small and medium enterprises, the

Chief Minister said that under the scheme of SMI, banks had

increased the credit flow in this sector in last five years, but

more efforts were needed in this direction. Drawing the

attention of Finance Ministry towards the rehabilitation of sick

units, she said that banks should also take initiative for the

rehabilitation of service sector enterprises, besides small

industries. She said that the institutions of providing financial

help had an important role in the rehabilitation of sick units.

Unfortunately, the financial institutions instead of taking

interest in the rehabilitation of sick units, pay more attention in

realising their dues.

Ms. Mayawati said that the State Government was doing

its best efforts for the weaker sections of the society. She said

that the State Government had made 20 per cent advance

available against the 10 per cent advance criterion of financial

help fixed by RBI for these weaker sections. Giving the

information regarding financial help for the uplift of minority

community, she said that effective arrangement should be

made for providing the availability of advance to minority

community. She said that the State Government had taken the

action of providing advance of Rs. 7270 crore to the 7.87 lakh

beneficiaries of minorities in 21 minority dominated districts.

She said that the Union Finance Ministry should put pressure on

banks for making more advance available to the beneficiaries of

minorities, so that the required change could come in the living

of minority community.

The Chief Minister while making request for providing

banking facilities available in 14625 villages of the State having

the population of more than 2000 by March 2011, said that

opening of banking outlets were most necessary in these

villages for financial inclusive in all the regions of the State. She

said that subsidy and payment facility smart card based on EBT

technique was being considered in centrally sponsored

schemes. The compensation for the expenditure of banks in this

process would also be considered, she said adding that the

State Government was running several schemes for the uplift

and welfare of poor and weaker sections of the society through

the limited resources of the State, besides the Central

Government. The role of banks was very important in running

these schemes, she added.

The Chief Minister said that banks should cooperate in the

implementation of Uttar Pradesh Mukhyamantri Mahamaya

Garib Arthik Madad Yojna, Savitri Bai Phule Balika Siksha Madad

Yojna and Mahamaya Garib Balika Ashirwad Yojna being run by

the State Government. She said that the development of the
