HYDERABAD: Making it clear that the State government has paid even the interest burden on crop loans, waived by the government, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao once again challenged Congress Party leaders, particularly TPCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy, to submit a list of farmers, whose interest amount on crop loan is yet to be paid.

“Uttam Reddy has so far failed to provide such details. I know he even sent bulk SMSes to all farmers across the State asking them to send the details of their interest burden, if the amount is not paid by the government. Being a farmer, I also got one such SMS from the TPCC chief. But, so far there is no response from ryots to the Congress leader’s call as government paid all the crop loan amount including interest amount,” he said in Assembly.

Coming down heavily on Congress, KCR alleged that Congress leaders were simply making wild allegations on the loan waiver implementation. “We have not come across single farmer whose interest burden on crop loan was not paid. If Congress has such information, let them place it on the floor of the House,” he said.
