TNCC seeks waiver of loans given to TN farmers

Press Trust of India  |  Thanjavur (TN) 

The state unit of today appealed to the Central and State governments to write-off all loans given to the farmers in the state and take steps to prevent their suicide, by providing them adequate relief.

Speaking to reporters here, Committee President S Tirunavukarasar said, Both the Centre and the state government should waive all the crop loans and the other loans given to the farmers.



Besides, the government should give Rs 15 lakhs to each family of the affected farmer as relief.

"The Kuruvai (first crop) has already failed and now the Samba crop has been badly hit.

The farmers are committing suicide due to withering of the crop cultivated by them. Steps should also be taken to end the farmers' suicide by providing them relief," he said.

A team of workers would visit the delta districts to review the impact of drought on the crops in the area, he added.

Criticising Prime Minister Modi's recommendation to people to switch to mobile banking, Tirunavakarasar said the farmers may know how to speak on their mobile phones, but would not know how to use the technology.
