Loan waiver goes viral

April 10 2017

The moment Yogi Adityanath in his first cabinet meeting waived off the loans of 21.5 lakh farmers of Uttar Pradesh worth Rs 36359 crore, its resonance could be heard in other states as well. The BJP-Shiv Sena government in Maharashtra lapped it up and chief minister Devendra Fadnavis is going to bring in a similar scheme for farmers of his state. Though Punjab has a Congress government, Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has indicated in his core committee meeting that a similar scheme will be brought for farmers of his state as well. On the other hand, Madras High Court has directed Tamil Nadu government to implement the scheme not only for small and marginal farmers but for all farmers in the state.
