Uttar Pradesh farmers feeling cheated from loan waiver package: RLD
Rashtriya Lok Dal today termed as 'cheating' the grant of money for loan waiver of farmers by the Uttar Pradesh government.
'The farmers of Uttar Pradesh are feeling cheated as the Akhilesh Yadav led-state government has waived-off onkly those loans that were taken by the cultivators from State Land Development Banks,' UP RLD president Munna Singh Chauhan said in a reaction here.
A large number of farmers, who had taken loans from the commercial banks and other financial institutions have been kept out of this waiver, he added.
The Samajwadi Party had in its election manifesto claimed to forgo the loans of the farmers, but the grant of Rs 1650 crore for the benefit of the small and marginal farmers seems partial, the RLD leader stated.
The government should think about the benefit of all the farmers equally and do no impartiality, Mr Chauhan said.
