Cong promises farm loan waiver if voted to power in Gujarat

Vadodara, Apr 6 (PTI) The Opposition Congress today promised farm loan waiver in Gujarat if it is voted to power in the state, where assembly polls are due later this year.

Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) President Bharatsinh Solanki said farm loan waiver and setting up of special economic zones in tribals districts will be included in the party’s manifesto.

“We will waive off the farm loans in Gujarat when we come to power. I am very confident the Congress will win a two -third majority in the 182-member Gujarat Assembly,” he told PTI on the sidelines of an event organised by the local unit of the party here.

Solanki later travelled to Dahod, a tribal-dominated district about 160km from here, for addressing `Adivasi Adhikar Yatra’.

The yatra, launched yesterday, will pass through 14 tribal districts and culminate at Dangs bordering Maharashtra.

Addressing the yatra in Dahod, Solanki said if voted to power, the Congress will set up special economic zones in tribal districts for welfare of adivasis.
