Ashoka urged the CM to order the DCs to instruct the banks not to adjust farmers’ money towa-rds their loans. If the banks do not agree, the State Governm-ent should waive farm loans, he said.

Even the mon-ey given by the Centre has not been properly delivered to the farmers, he said.

The CM should call for a meeting of the bank officials and take appropriate measures, Ashoka said.
