India has to become #selfreliant. This pandemic has provided an opportunity for us to make the 21st century an Indian century , says @PMOIndia @narendramodi
Human centred globalisation is being discussed. Vasudaiva Kutumbakam is the spirit. In our culture, we treat the earth as the mother. So when we speak of #selfreliance we talk of well being for all, says @PMOIndia @narendramodi

Shri @RahulGandhi MP (LS) and Shri @rssurjewala spokesperson of @INCIndia have attempted to mislead people in a brazen manner. Typical to @INCIndia, they resort to sensationalising facts by taking them out of context. In the following tweets wish to respond to the issues raised.
Today’s attempt of @INCIndia leaders is to mislead on wilful defaulters, bad loans & write-offs. Between 2009-10 & 2013-14, Scheduled Commercial Banks had written off Rs.145226.00 crores. Wished Shri.@RahulGandhi consulted Dr. Manmohan Singh on what this writing-off was about.
Provisions are made for NPAs as per the four-year provisioning cycle laid down by the @RBI. Upon full provisioning being done banks write-off the fully provided NPA but continue to pursue recovery against the borrower. No loan is waived off.

Will present 2 verses in the following tweets — Verse 44 for the alliteration, and for the qualities attributed; Verse 48 for the sheer imagination contained in it. Following that, 5 names with beautiful meanings that should carry a lot of spiritual heft than what I’ve shown
