HemantSoren_PTIJMM leader Hemant Soren has termed MUDRA Yojana a “repackaging” of previous loan schemes and calls it a ‘Bihar election stunt’.

“Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana is nothing but a repackaging of previous loan schemes like IRDP … Is it really development or Bihar election stunt,” said Soren.

He said the erstwhile IRDP scheme had also been inaugurated on October 2, 1980 with provisions of loans and sought to know whether the Centre assessed its failure.

“The JMM-led government had also given loans with just four per cent interest and grant-in-aid with 50 per cent reservation for ST/SC/BC and other sections. Has MUDRA got any reservation provision,” the former Jharkhand Chief Minister said.
