    It's true that those who get loans are not poorest farmers than those landless. There has been policy gaps to reach and identify. Policy paralysis is; those farmers came to display their anger for just farm waivers or something else.

    True Suggestions how to help the farmers further will be better than giving useless comments.

    कांग्रेस की सरकार में इन्हें सब अच्छा लगता था, करप्शन भी। लेकिन आजकल इन्हें बहुत समस्या है। हर बात में ओपिनियन हैं इनके पास।

    Very realistic !! Loan waiver won’t solve the issue. Creative and progressive steps in development and distribution of modern and micro levels of agricultural methods and devices, multilevel training, warfront level measures to solve the crop related problems both on agricultural university level and its distribution, logical irrigation and field trainings will support a lot. The need for proper marketing is at large a major question. It is very funny that a government of a country of 136 crores find difficulties in finding markets for their agricultural products!! Trainings to utilise the farming intervals in productive manner will generate additional income. It is a pity that the various governments are not perceiving agricultural sector as promising and fail to foresee the enormous possibilities where the entire world is facing food shortage!!

    Loan waiver must be from Political party funds, not from tax revenues. Tax must be used only in development and defence sector only.

    Farm loan waiver is not a good thing... but then when we see crores spent on statues and to bail out ultra rich...we feel let that money go to them so that they could survive and feed us.

    Loan waiver is a punishment for tax payers.. leaders should provide opportunity for advancement of farming techniques and consequent better realisation for farmer
