Loan Waiver politics' catching up with BJP: But views divided on higher MSP 11.1.2020 Central Chronicle
New Delhi, The loan waiver spree of three newly installed Congress governments in Hindi heartland states has certainly mounted pressure on the BJP to prepare its ground vis-a-vis farmers grievances and indications are that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley may have to do 'quick ground work' to announce budgetary provisions for the agrarian community in the Vote on Account. However, a section in the ruling dispensation has always maintained that loan waiver is at best a populist measure and and is "not the best" of measures to help farmers. "Nor, this is a long lasting solution to their problems," a BJP source told agencies. According to sources, the announcement of higher MSP by the new Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel to hike the Minimum Support Price (MSP) for paddy to Rs 2,500, fulfilling promises made by the Congress in the run up to polls can also "distort the market". "As of now, nothing is clear, how the funds-starved Chhattisgarh government can manage the show. The loan waiver and higher ...

Rather than acceding to the farm loan waiver demand, the Shivraj government preferred to focus on raising farm income. It brought in ...
