Using Niti Aayog's stage to his advantage, Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy put the ball in Centre's court by seeking 50 per cent assistance to his government's farm loan waiver scheme. "Debt of farmers is staring us in the face. My government is ready to address this problem and I request the Government of India to support us," Kumaraswamy said.

While we represent various political ideologies, when it comes to development we should work together," he said addressing PM Modi.

Congress will go alone in Rajasthan Assembly Election; don’t need an alliance: Sachin Pilot 3.6.2018 DNA: Top News
How has the Rajasthan government handled the farmer’s unrest and debt issue? 150 farmers have already committed suicide in the state and the government has turned a blind eye to the farmer problem. The unavailability of water compounded with debt management has affected farmers in the past three years. Do you think that the rural distress as an issue can also resonate in Madhya Pradesh? Both Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan are suffering from an agrarian distress. The BJP hasn’t paid sufficient attention to the farmer issue. The Congress has not forgotten Mandasaur incident, which is why Congress President Rahul Gandhi visited the place to mark the death anniversary of the farmers who were shot during last year’s agitation. The farmer resentment will be seen during the elections. Is Kairana (in Uttar Pradesh) a roadmap for the Opposition for the coming Lok Sabha election? To an extent, yes, but every state has a different dynamic and alliances will form keeping that in mind. The UPA President (Sonia Gandhi) ...

Mounting pressure on the three-day old Kumaraswamy government in Karnataka, a group of pro-Kannada organisations have demanded that the chief minister waive farm loans and give a compensation of Rs 25 lakh to each family of those farmers who committed suicide. The president of Kannada Okkoota (federation), Vatal Nagaraj today wrote to the chief minister and asked him to immediately waive farm loans. He said many farmers committed suicide for failing to repay their loans. Nagaraj told PTI that the Okkoota would give a week's time till the cabinet is formed and then it would intensify its pressure on the government to waive farm loans. He flayed chief minister Kumaraswamy's statement that that he was at the "mercy" of Congress and not the people of state. "A chief minister should never give a statement like that. It is unacceptable. All through the election campaign he was saying that he will waive farm loans and now he is saying that he is under the obligation of Congress
