The Congress-led government in Rajasthan had on December 19, 2018 announced a waiver for short term farm loans up to Rs 2 lakh and constituted a committee to decide the eligibility criteria.
The announcement was in line with the Congress chief's pre-poll announcement to waive farm loans.
"Promise of waiving off loans of farmers was a resolution of the Congress and the government has fulfilled its promise after coming to power," the party's in-charge for political affairs in Rajasthan, Avinash Pande said.
"Congress president will be addressing a public meeting where farmers will express their gratitude," he added.
