Jaipur: Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Monday announced one-time loan waiver of up to Rs 50,000 for small and marginal farmers in the state, which would cost Rs 8,000 crore to the exchequer. Presenting the state budget in the Assembly, Vasundhara also announced setting up a farmer loan relief commission where farmers can approach and present their side for getting relief on merit basis.

As Vasundhara, who also holds finance portfolio, announced the loan waiver, Opposition Congress members led by the Leader of Opposition Rameshwar Dudi created uproar in the House. They said it was betrayal with farmers and complete loan should be waived.
