NITI Aayog’s vice chairperson slams Rahul Gandhi for his tweet on farm loan waiver

The Modi government is the only government that has implemented the proposals of the Swaminathan Commission, said Dr. Rajiv Kumar.

NITI Ayog’s vice chairperson Rajiv Kumar today expressed his disapproval of Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s tweet on farm loan waivers announced in Assam and Gujarat. Rahul Gandhi had earlier tweeted that his government’s move to grant farm loan waivers had managed to wake up the Assam and Gujarat governments from their slumber.

Earlier, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had claimed that the governments of Assam and Gujarat have announced farm loan waivers in their respective states only after the Congress government of MP and Chhattisgarh announced it.

With his tweet, Rahul insinuated that the Assam and Gujarat governments were indifferent to farmers’ distress in their respective states and it was only after the Congress governments’ waving off of farm loans in MP and Chhattisgarh that these governments sprung back into action and declared loan waivers.

Speaking to the media, Rajiv Kumar repudiated Rahul’s insinuations and claimed that no other government would have ever worked for farmers as much as the present one.

Kumar added that it was the present government which implemented the recommendations provided by the Swaminathan Committee to alleviate farmers’ woes and raise the credit for farmers to Rs 10.50 lakh crore.

We had earlier reported how the Modi government has developed a multi-pronged strategy to deal with the chronic agrarian distress. The BJP government had last year waived off farm loans in Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh but has not considered it as a panacea for the persistent agriculture miseries.

It had also hiked up the MSP prices as per Swaminathan Committee recommendations, besides launching many new initiatives. PM Modi’s government has announced that they have set a target to double the income of farmers by 2022 and the NITI Ayog and various government organisations are working to achieve the goal.
