Uttar Pradesh: Welcoming the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s decision to waive off farm loans, the Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi stated that this is a step taken in the right direction.

Rahul took to share the news on his Twitter handle, “A partial relief for UP (Uttar Pradesh) farmers, but a step in the right direction. The Congress has always supported loan waivers for farmers in distress. I’m happy BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) has finally been forced to see reason.”

However, he also cautioned the central government against the discriminating among states and advised the government not to play politics with our farmers who are suffering from pathetic condition across the country.

Rahul went on to say: “The Central government must have a national response to the widespread distress and not discriminate.”

The Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday cleared a Rs 36,359-crore proposal allowing waiver of loans for marginal and small farmers of the state.
