MP from Bhadohi district of Uttar Pradesh said that the Modi government has taken some historic steps to improve the condition of the farmers. Some decisions will be exposed in the coming days to strengthen them financially. He said that the debt forgiveness of farmers is not a permanent solution but it is a temporary arrangement. He said that former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had also announced a debt waiver of Rs 56,000 crore. But what happened? Did this benefit the farmers? This is not a permanent solution.
