A cruel joke with the farmers of Madhya PradeshHis name is Nipana Baijnath. He is a farmer of Agar Malwa of Madhya Pradesh. He owed Rs 24,000/- in debt which stood eligible for the waiver but instead, only a paltry sum was waived. But what is the amount which he has received? He is going to receive a meagre Rs 13/- in the name of full waiver. Unbelievable but true!
Baijnath-ji has said: "The state government had promised to waive loans up to Rs 2 lakh. Forms were filled and I was expecting a complete waiver of my loan amount of Rs 23,815/-. But the list that has come to the panchayat says only Rs 13/- have been waived." The State Government officials expressed their helplessness in this regard. This has happened with many farmers who applied for the loan waiver.
Isn't it a cruel joke with the loan-burdened farmers of Madhya Pradesh?
