By confirming that waiving off farmers loans in Madhya Pradesh completely would not be possible, Digvijay Singh’s younger brother Lakshman Singh has perhaps conceded that Rahul Gandhi’s fraud promises of farm-loan waivers were nothing but a mere gimmick to con poor farmers to vote for Congress in Madhya Pradesh.

Coming as a major embarrassment for the party, Lakshman Singh, who has been a five-time MP and two-time MLA, while interacting with the media in Bhopal said that complete loan waiver for farmers is not possible. He furthered that the Congress government in Madhya Pradesh has failed to assess the same because of which waiving off farmers loan this year seems impossible.

Notably ahead of assembly elections, the Congress party, and its former President Rahul Gandhi specifically, had repeatedly promised that farmer loan waivers will be granted to all farmers within 10 days of Congress coming to power. In fact, Rahul Gandhi has touted this as one of his achievements through the campaigning for 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Lakshman Singh, the Congress loyalist has now capitulated that it was a mistake on Rahul Gandhi’s part to promise a complete loan waiver within 10 days if voted to power.

Going by basic calculations, the Congress MLA said that waiving off loans amounting to Rs 45 thousand crores is quite a mammoth task and therefore accomplishing the same seems impossible.

This statement coming from a Congress MLA is not surprising since there are other loyalists who have in the past reiterated the same uncertainty. In the month of May this year, Chief Minister Kamal Nath had also conceded that Congress ex-president’s promise was nothing but a sham, considering he too accepted then that a complete loan waiver for farmers is not possible in 10 days because nobody has a magic wand.

In fact, there have been several incidents in the past that prove the failure of the Congress government to deliver on its much-touted promise. In February distressed farmers in Madhya Pradesh had threatened ‘mass suicide’ over fake loans in Madhya Pradesh.

The Congress party with their misadventures and the politics of farm loan waivers seems to be in the middle of a severe crisis, as recently, yet another farmer in the state of Madhya Pradesh was reportedly deceived by the Kamal Nath led Congress government after just Rs.13 was set to be waived-off against a loan of Rs. 24,000.

Kamal Nath government’s inadequacy to keep up the big promises of loan-waivers made at the time of wooing people to garner votes before the state election has already taken three lives of farmers in Madhya Pradesh. Along with these deaths, many farmers across the state who had taken the loan from banks before 31 st March 2018 and that of more than Rs 1 lakh, have reportedly got loan waiver benefit of mere Rs 25-30.

The Congress government in the Madhya Pradesh seems to have already lost their control as the state has been rocked with severe protests by the farmers along with severe law and order issues in the state. Within weeks of Congress coming to power in the state, there has been a series of murders of BJP and RSS workers in the state raising concerns about the issue of law and order in the state.

In fact, recently former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had accused the Congress of blatantly lying and deceiving the poor farmers of Madhya Pradesh calling the schemes promised by Congress is a major sham.
