NEW DELHI – Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday accused Uttar Pradesh’s Yogi Adityanath government of cheating the state’s debt-ridden farmers in the name of loan waiver and failing to compensate them for their crop loss due to excessive rain.
Sharing a news report about farmer suicide, she said that the BJP government devised news to harass the farmers.
“The UP government has devised many ways to harass farmers. It cheated them in the name of loan waiver. Threw them into jails in the name of electricity bills. And there is no compensation for crop loss due to flood and rains. The BJP government in UP only remembers farmers in advertisements,” Priyanka tweeted in Hindi.
The news report says that two farmers committed suicide in Uttar Pradesh due to debt-burden.
The Congress leader has been attacking the Adityanath government for not working for the betterment of the state’s farmers.
