Bhopal: Blaming BJP Government's policies for the plight of farmers in Madhya Pradesh, Opposition Congress today staged a massive rally here and alleged that the ruling party failed to waive off loans of poor farmers.

"The Centre has provided Rs 914 crore for waiving off loans of the farmers, but the ruling party members with the help of cooperative banks have committed a scam of Rs 114 crore while waiving of loans of other ineligible persons," Congress state unit president Suresh Pachouri alleged addressing the rally.

Besides Pachouri, the rally was addressed by Union Ministers -- Kantilal Bhuria, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Arun Yadav among others.

Speaking on the occasion, Jyotiraditya Scindia described Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan as 'champion of announcements' without caring for their implementation.

Though the Centre provides huge amount of money for the welfare of farmers, the same is not reaching them due to large scale irregularities, Arun Yadav alleged.
