CONG GOVT. PLAYING WITH LIVES OF FARMERS- SUKHBIR BADAL

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal today said the Congress government was playing with the lives of Punjab farmers by proposing to implement a fraudulent crop loan waiver which left out genuine beneficiaries and demanded it be scrapped and replaced with a comprehensive waiver covering all indebted farmers. In a statement here, the SAD president said nearly 400 farmers had committed suicide after the government failed to implement the promised Rs 90,000 loan waiver covering cooperative and nationalized banks as well as private money lenders. He said now an even more dangerous trend was in the offing after the suicide of a farmer from Lehragaga in Sangrur who took his life after finding out his name was not in the beneficiary list.
