Madhya Pradesh: Distressed farmer from Dewas sings a song asking CM Kamal Nath to keep his promise and waive off his loan

A farmer in Dewas made a video in, which he sings songs to draw the government's attention requesting them for help by waiving off his loan as promised by Kamal Nath government

Madhya Pradesh farmers have been stranded amidst Congress’ misadventure and politics of farm loan waiver since the party came to power in the state. A distressed farmer in Dewas, Madhya Pradesh has now resorted to an innovative way to reach out to the Chief Minister Kamal Nath attempting to draw his attention at his troubled state.

A farmer in Dewas made a video in, which he sings songs to draw the government’s attention requesting them for help by waiving off his loan as promised by Kamal Nath government.

In the video, the farmer sings: “Karz maaf kiya jayen, samarthan mulya diya jayen, hum par Kamal Nath thoda dhyan diya jayen” (waive off loans, respect our support, Kamal Nath give us some attention).

Additionally, the farmer demanded that government should help them recover the price for the standing Soya crop in Dewas that has suffered pest attack. He sang: “Bheek mangte nahi, haq humara hain yeh. Daam faslon ka humko, uchit de do….” roughly translated as “we are not begging, instead it is our right to get the right price for our crops.”

The farmer feels that perhaps social media is the only way he can reach out to the Kamal Nath government, which is otherwise, not paying attention to the farmer’s plight. He says that Kamal Nath is our representative and head, if he will not listen to us then who will? “This is my attempt to bring the farmers plight to his notice,” said the farmer from Dewas sector in Madhya Pradesh.

Congress came to power in Madhya Pradesh over promises of farm loan waiver, however, Kamal Nath led Congress government’s promise in Madhya Pradesh to waive-off farms loans under Jai Kisan Rin Mukti Yojana has turned out to be a debacle. After assuming power in in the state they cleverly altered the conditions to waive-off farms loans in contrast to their earlier stand.

The false promises of loan-waivers has created a stir amongst the poor farmers in the state. Recently, in a video which surfaced, a farmer exposed the government’s farm loan waiver sham. A Madhya Pradesh farmer confronted Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia in a public meeting in Bhopal on May 12 and alleged that farmer loan waiver as promised by the Congress government hasn’t been fulfilled yet

Amidst what can be seen as a massive loan-waiver scam brewing in the state, the distressed farmers had in February, threatened to commit ‘mass suicide’ after their names appeared on the state government’s loan waiver list even though they do not have any dues or have loans far smaller than the ones that are listed.

In January, Kamal Nath govt waived off over 120 crore non-existent farm loans. Depressed and helpless farmers in Madhya Pradesh have been committing suicide over the false promises made by the Congress government, but somehow the government remains unmoved.
