In yet another episode of government making fun of poor farmers, a marginal farmer from Mathura district received a shocker of a statement from the district administration as he was granted a waiver of 1 paisa from his outstanding farm loan of Rs 1.5 lakhs.
Chhidi, who hails from Govardhan Tehsil in Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh was absolute shell-shocked when he acknowledged the certificate and said that the government is making fun of farmers like him.
According to sources, Chhidi owns only 5 bighas of land and about 6 years ago, he took a loan of Rs 1.5 lakhs with the help of Kisan credit.
As per the scheme, the farmer claims he is eligible for Rs. 1 lakh rupee and farmers like him have already received a full waiver. Albiet Chhidi might have received the not so mind boggling figures due to ‘possible’ technical glitch, he is surely not the only one to have witnessed such waiving by the Yogi government since the inception of UP Chief Minister’s Rin Mochan Yojana.
