Congress party’s aim to make farmers debt free: Bhuvneshwar Singh Hooda

The Congress party has called for legislation to give less support to agricultural crops. Former Haryana Chief Minister Bhuvneshwar Singh Hooda told a party ‘Nai Commitment’ advisory meeting in Udaipur that the party’s aim is to make farmers more debt-free.

The second day of the Congress Party’s ‘Thinking Pledge for New Commitment’ (Nav Sankalp Sindh Shiv) was organized in Udaipur, Rajasthan on Saturday. Hooda is the organizer of a panel discussion on agriculture and farmers’ issues at this think tank. Bhuvneshwar Singh Hooda briefed the media on the major issues before the panel. He said:

The Congress party will strongly oppose any move by the federal government to repeal the three repealed agricultural laws. His group discussed legislation on minimum support price guarantees for farmers, the impact of climate change on agriculture, the ‘poor’ implementation of the bio-insurance scheme by the government, and the non-appropriate implementation of capital-credit for agriculture.

National Agricultural Debt Relief Commission should be set up to address the debt crisis of the farmers. It is proposed to settle agricultural loans through settlement and negotiation, as is the case with industrial loans. I have to recommend it.

Banks should come forward to treat agriculture at par with industry.

The aim of Congress is to free farmers from debt by giving loan waiver or exemption from these demands. How to implement it Make Minimum Support Price (MSP) a legal guarantee for farmers.

This is the demand of all agricultural unions. Congress also wants the same.

He is also M.S. MSP should be based on Swaminathan Commission’s C-2 formula and should be applicable to all agricultural products.

The BJP-led National Democratic Front government had promised to double the income of farmers, but instead doubled their debt.

As on March 31, 2014, farmers had arrears of Rs 9.64 lakh crore. At present it has doubled to Rs 16.8 lakh crore. But the central government did not give any relief to the farmers.

At the same time, the Congress-led state governments have been waiving loans of farmers from time to time and solving their problems as much as possible.
