Mobility and Dignity over Survival

Jaideep Hardikar reports about easy vehicle loan against land schemes by banks for debt-ridden Vidarbha farmers, Vidarbha farmers run over by bike loans.
Defending the schemes, Rajeev Niwal, 40, co-partner of Parvati Automobiles in Yavatmal, says: “This is a good scheme for the welfare of farmers. A bike gives mobility to a farmer, increases efficiency in supervision of farm work and gives him dignity. Not for nothing are two-wheelers in such great demand in the villages.”

Wonder when the easy loans for agriculture will come by?

Before agriculture loans, the farmers will get loans to buy computers and use the internet. After all, it is our President's vision.
