Congress will clear loan dues of Mangalram, the Nagaur district farmer who committed suicide after failing to repay a loan amount of Rs 2.98 lakh to a nationalised bank. PCC chief Sachin Pilot, who paid a visit to the deceased farmer’s home in Nagaur’s Charanvas village on Wednesday, lashed out at Chief minister Vasundhara Raje for taking out Gaurav Yatra at a time when farmers are committing suicide and added that the party will pay all his dues along with lending every other help that is needed by the family.  “It is very unfortunate that the head of the state (CM) is busy taking out Gaurav Yatra while on the other hand funeral procession of farmers continue to rise in the state. I am shocked to learn from kin of the deceased farmer that he was harassed and insulted to pay the loan amount. Such a behaviour is highly condemnable,” said Pilot.

Senior Congress leader Ashok Gehlot too trained his guns on CM Vasundhara Raje accusing her of giving priority to her ‘Gaurav Yatra’ instead of addressing the crucial issue of farmers’ suicides. The fresh attack by the AICC general secretary comes after a 36-year-old farmer Mangalram Meghwal allegedly committed suicide in the state’s Nagaur district on Saturday. Farmers in state are committing suicide and Raje is carrying out Gaurav Yatra,” Gehlot said a day after terming the chief minister’s rally her vidai (farewell) yatra. The BJP government has totally failed in providing any relief to the farmers, the former chief minister tweeted.

PCC chief Sachin Pilot: What’s there to be proud of yatra? 7.8.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
PCC chief Sachin Pilot lobbed his fourth question at chief minister Vasundhara Raje where he sought reply on what makes her feel proud of  ‘Rajasthan Gaurav Yatra’ when on the other hand hundreds of farmers are committing suicide, something that Rajasthan should be ashamed of and grieve about. Pilot also referred to the suicide of a farmer in Nagaur district on Sunday, who took the extreme step after the government attached his properties for failing to clear the loan due on him. Accusing Raje for being insensitive, Pilot said that farmers under her rule protested extensively on agrarian issues, but she failed to solve their problems. “She has announced to waive off loan upto Rs 50,000, but still farmers continue to commit suicide. Mangalchand, a farmer from Nagaur, hanged himself as he could not repay the loan amount,” said Pilot, alluding to the ineffectiveness of the loan waiver. The farmers have been deceived by the government as the agencies are charging premium amount from the loan without ...

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s ambitious Rs 36,000 crore farmers’ loan waver scheme is again under scanner after two debt-ridden farmers committed suicide in the last two days in Charkhari of Mahoba in Bundelkhand area of Uttar Pradesh after failing to get any relief under the scheme. Khemchandra (30) and 70-year-old Prahlad Singh hanged themselves in Charkhari area in Mahoba district of parched Bundelkhand when they failed to get any relief under the state government’s loan waver scheme.

DNA SPECIAL: Protest won’t stop until govt gives timeline, Maratha Kranti Morcha 25.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
State government failed to strike truce with the Maratha reservation activists as the Maratha Kranti Morcha (MKM) declined to wind up their agitation on Tuesday. They instead called upon the state government to release a timetable giving exact days and dates for providing 16 per cent quota in jobs and education for the Maratha community. The stand was also toughened against the backdrop of farmer Kakasaheb Shinde’s suicide. The 28-year-old jumped off a bridge into the Godavari River while participating in the agitation.  “The time-table should include day and date of state cabinet which will give its nod for quota, timing of release of report of the Backward Class Commission and acceptance of its recommendations,” MKM coordinator Vinod Patil told DNA, “Besides, the government should reveal when it will start providing facilities to the community and implement the Commission’s report and issue an ordinance for the same.”  He reminded that MKM had taken out 58 peace marches so far and said every time the ...

Congress accuses PM Modi of misleading and betraying farmers 21.7.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Congress today accused him of "misleading and betraying" the farmers of the country and said he had a "poor track record" in the agriculture sector. Congress spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill alleged the prime minister was a "dishonest leader", who was once again "spreading propaganda rather than giving definitive answers on farmers' issues". He said that farmers' suicide rate in UP had increased by 40 per cent since the BJP came to power in the state. In his rally at Shahjahanpur in Uttar Pradesh today, Modi claimed that the previous governments lacked the will to help farmers, while listing the measures taken by his government for their welfare. It was for the first time in the country that a government had decided to allow mills to produce ethanol from molasses and sugarcane juice, he said, During his nearly 45-minute speech, the prime minister said the opposition was merely running after the prime minister's post while ignoring the poor, the youth and the ...
