Bagalkote: Yallavva Ninganoora and her family from Mahalingapura of Rabakavi-Banahatti Taluk have written a letter to Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, on December 17, stating, "Banks are harassing us to repay the loans, and threatening of auctioning our land. Please waive off our loans or allow us to commit suicide."
In 2012, Yamanappa Chinnappa Ninganoora, deceased husband of Yallavva, had taken a loan of Rs 5 Lakh from Rabakavi branch of a private bank of Jamakandi, by submitting the papers of his 1.05 acres of land as collateral. But unfortunately, Yamanappa became a victim of cancer. Rs 4 Lakh of the loan amount was spent on his medical expenses. His treatment was not successful and Yamanappa lost his life on 13 June 2018.
Yallavva in her letter, added, "The principle and the interest for the loan taken has added upto Rs 8.60 Lakh. On December 12, the bank officials had decided to auction our land. But the Deputy Commissioner had asked the bank authorities not to auction the land after we informed the District Administration about the auction. Now the bank officials are issuing notices repeatedly, and also verbally harassing us in our house demanding repayment of loan."
"I have two children and five grand children. We are 10 members in the family. Due to poverty, we are not able to afford one square meal a day. Please waive off the loan taken with interest, or allow us to commit suicide," Yallavva has requested in her letter to the CM.
