“The 1398 farmers from UP that I have taken care of by paying off their loans with the Bank is now complete .. the Bank has issued them their OTS , the one time settlement document and certificate , and there is a sense of accomplishment .. I shall wish of course to give these settlements , these confirmations that their loans have been paid off, personally .. but getting this large number to the city is not possible ..”, scribed Bachchan in his blog.
Big B also informed that he has personally arranged for 70 selected farmers to travel to Mumbai and receive their bank letters.
“So I have identified 70 of them .. am putting them on a train from Lucknow to Mumbai , by booking an entire bogie for them .. they travel on the 25th to be here on the 26th and I shall personally hand them their certificates ..”, said the veteran actor.
