Sukhbir seeks relief package for farmers

Chandigarh, October 31

SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal today requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene and direct the Union Ministry of Finance to offer a comprehensive relief package to farmers instead of discriminating against them by issuing clarifications that agricultural loans would not be eligible for the interest waiver announced by the Union Government last year.

He said the decision not to include the farming community in the ambit of the scheme which seeks to provide ex gratia payment of the difference between compound interest and simple interest to borrowers for six months proved that policy makers were totally out of sync with the ground realities. Sukhbir said farmers were expecting a complete waiver of their crop loans. — TNS
