‘Rahul first to criticise MFIs'

Special Correspondent

Stop loose talk against him, says D. Srinivas

HYDERABAD: APCC president D. Srinivas has advised the Opposition parties, the Telugu Desam in particular, to stop its “loose talk” against the Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi by accusing him of promoting micro finance institutions (MFIs).

Accusing them of intentionally indulging in ‘mud-slinging' against Mr. Rahul Gandhi, he said the Congress leader indeed visited Bhongir and other places in Nalgonda district to study and understand the processes being followed by SKS Micro Finance run by Vikram Akula.

The visit was no secret and Mr. Rahul Gandhi also visited areas where the Indira Kranthi Patham (IKP) of the State Government was being implemented.

He was so impressed by the IKP that he decided to adopt it in Rae Bareilly and Amethi constituencies. He invited officials from Andhra Pradesh to train their counterparts in the two constituencies to implement IKP with funding by the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation.

“Mr. Rahul Gandhi was among the first to criticise the MFIs and in demanding stringent regulations to govern their functioning,” Mr. Srinivas said. Mr. Gandhi had long-term plans for alleviating the problems of the poorest of the poor, he added.
