Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan Saturday said that like Right to Information, Right to Education Bill implemented by the UPA government and Food Security Bill which was in the offing, Right to Credit could be a logical progression of the process of empowering the citizens.
"To implement this, the technical support must come from the Aadhaar Scheme. We will have to open bank accounts for all citizens and loans sanctioned using differential rates based on the economic strength of the beneficiary." He also said that despite opposition the UPA's reform drive was facing in Parliament, he was hopeful the government will be able to push through these reforms. "The government's current chain of reforms that are being termed as Reforms 2.0 will prove fruitful for economic growth," the CM said.
