With Yogi Adityanath as the new Chief minister as Dinesh Sharma along with Keshav Prasad Maurya today took oath as the Deputy CM of the state, Sharma asserted that the promises on waiving farmers’ loan will be kept and there is no reason for concern for the same. During his massive campaigning for UP assembly election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised that the first decision of the new UP government under the BJP would be to waive loans of small and marginal farmers.

Days back, the expected move by Centre to waive off loans of farmers in Uttar Pradesh has led to similar demands emerging from farmers in other states too. Centre will bear the burden of the promised loan waiver for farmers in UP, Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh said on Thursday in an intervention during a discussion on demands for grants for the agriculture ministry in Lok Sabha.
