Punjab CM promises hike in loan waiver | Chandigarh News


CHANDIGARH: Promising the farming community a hike in loan waiver once the fiscal situation in the state improves, Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh on Saturday hit out at Akalis for criticising his government’s farm debt waiver scheme while failing to do anything for farmers themselves.

Addressing a press conference to mark two years of his government, Amarinder said if money was available, he would give more to farmers, who deserved the same for the contribution they made to the prosperity of the nation.

Asserting that his government had laid a strong foundation for development of Punjab in just two years, Amarinder said the Congress regime had delivered on each of the “nine nuktas” promised in the run-up to the assembly elections. Even the promise of smart phones to youth was being fulfilled, with tenders already floated, he said, adding the best of phones would be given to youth.

Listing out the achievements of the Congress government, Amarinder said the state was on the right path and all set to leverage a “renewed sense of optimism and revival” across key sectors.
