Big news is coming for lakhs of farmers of Maharashtra. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has made a big announcement to waive up to 2 lakh loans of farmers. The Shiv Sena-NCP and Congress’s Mahavikas Aghadi government have made this big announcement in the interest of farmers by implementing the promises made in the Common Miminon Program.

On Saturday, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray made an announcement related to the debt waiver of the farmers in the assembly, saying that by September 2019, the people who have taken loans from the bank, will be forgiven by next March and direct cash will be transferred to the banks. Uddhav Thackeray has announced loan waiver of up to 2 lakhs of farmers under Mahatma Jyotirao Phule Shetkari Karjammukti Yojana.

Last year, after the Congress government was formed in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Punjab, the debt waiver of farmers was announced. The Congress had waived the loans of the farmers as per the election promise. In Karnataka too, the debt waiver of farmers was announced soon after the formation of the Congress-JDS government. However, there was also a dispute about implements.

“Gorgarib Shetakyanna Jeenche debt is coming up till 30th September 2019, all the debt debt is over 2 lakhs of rupees, O Sarkar Tya Karjatoon Tyala Mukti Deethe is coming. Mahatma Jyotirao Phule Shetkari Karjamukti Yojana is coming today only today.

It is noteworthy that after a lot of political upheaval in Maharashtra, a coalition government of Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress was formed last month. The government of Mahavikas Aghadi has been formed after agreeing on a Common Minimum Program.

BJP, the party with the most seats, is currently sitting in the opposition. In the coming time, more schemes are expected to come up for the betterment of lakhs of farmers of Maharashtra, because the problem of farmers is the biggest in the state.
