Jharkhand agriculture minister Badal Patralekh on Tuesday accused the Centre of deceiving farmers. He charged the state BJP MPs for not raising their issues properly at the Parliament to ensure loan waiver.

Inaugurating the Agriculture Exhibition of Farmer’s conclave at the Dhanbad Zila Parishad ground, he asked, “What relief has been provided to farmers of the state during almost 20 years of BJP rule in the state?”

“BJP leaders should introspect injustice caused to farmers both at state and central government levels, due to which the farmers are compelled to come on road in Delhi leaving their home and family,” Paralekh said.

BJP has not acted on the promised loan waiver of Rs 2 lakh and instead gave only Rs 50,000 to the farmers.

“Despite fund constraints during the pandemic we had made a beginning for the loan waiver of farmers and will increase the loan waiver gradually,” claimed Patralekh.
