After MP & Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan waives farm loans upto Rs 2 lakh

Jaipur:  After Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has announced that short-term crop loans from cooperative banks and loans of up to 2 lakh rupees from nationalised and other banks will be waived.

Talking to media persons in Jaipur last evening, Gehlot said entire short-term crop loans from cooperative banks will be waived. Along with this, loans of the defaulting farmers up to two lakh rupees from nationalised and other banks will also be waived.

The state government will bear a burden of Rs. 18,000 crore for the waiver, the Chief Minister added.

In the run-up to the assembly elections, Rahul Gandhi had promised to waive the farm loans in these three states within 10 days of coming to power.

Earlier on yesterday, Gandhi claimed that his party has managed to wake up the Bharatiya Janata Party chief ministers of Assam and Gujarat “from their deep slumber” and will do the same to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
