The talks about farm loan waivers only for political reasons and such waivers given by its governments in and are confined to only crop loans and that too on those availed before 2008, he alleged.

"We are already giving loans at two per cent interest rate to farmers. They will soon be getting loans at zero per cent interest. It will help them increase their produce further and strengthen their economy," told reporters here.
