Gudur legislator Dr V Varaprasad Rao said that poor and minority people are not getting loans as expected. He asked the banks to explain reasons to the beneficiaries while refusing loan applications. Joint Collector-2 A Kamala Kumari, AGM of Nabard Ravi Singh, LDM YV Ramprasad Reddy and others were present.
