Bhopal: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Wednesday urged the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, to ensure that farmers in Bhind district get chemical fertilisers and also provide them with benefits of loan waiver scheme.

In a letter to Chouhan, copies of which were released to the press here, Singh said during campaigning for the Gohad assembly seat bypoll in Bhind district, he came to know that farmers were not getting chemical fertilisers and were forced to buy the same from the black market.

He urged Chouhan to make available chemical fertilisers immediately in the district.

In a separate letter to Chouhan, he also raised the issue of loan waiver scheme and said that in Bhind district, the cooperative bank has failed to provide the benefits of the scheme to the farmers while in other parts of the state, they have been given to them.

He urged Chouhan to intervene in the issue and ensure that farmers get the benefit of the loan waiver scheme before October 31 failing which they would be forced to launch an agitation on the issue.
