Bengaluru: Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy announced that the government would officially declare the ambitious Rs 49,000 Crore farm loan waiver within five days.
Addressing the deputy commissioners and Zilla Panchayat CEOs at the Vidhana Soudha on Monday, July 30, Kumaraswamy instructed the district officials to make all the necessary arrangements for the smooth implementation of the scheme. He instructed officials to ensure that middlemen did not exploit the provisions of the scheme.
He also advised the district officials to listen and respond effectively to the grievances of the people. “Visit every taluk in your control at least once a month and listen to the people’s problems,” he said.
The CM also urged the officials to hasten the implementation of the schemes now as the pace would reduce once general elections approach nearer.
