27 lakh farmers will benefit from loan waiver scheme
The BJP farmers wing stated that over 27 lakh marginal farmers will benefit from the loan waivers scheme as proposed by the state government.

Dnyanoba Munde, head of the BJP Kisan Morcha also stated that this is a historic decision that would offer big relief to the debt-ridden farmers of the state. He also expressed his displeasure that some farmers still continued their agitation despite all the help announced by the government.

"The BJP government has implemented more number of welfare schemes and measures for farmers. Right from offering agricultural aids to offering good prices to agricultural produce, the government has always taken pro-farmer stand, " he said.

He also clarified that the CM’s landholding criteria of 5 acre for terming a farmer as marginal was not rigid and farmers who owned few ‘gunthas’ of land in addition to 5 acre would also be entitled to benefits.

The CM has also announced the enacting of a legislation in July to make purchase of farm produce below the minimum support price a criminal offence and setting up a commission for agriculture costs and prices. The proposed loan waiver scheme would benefit farmers whose crop credit had turned outstanding in 2012 and later.
