Let's mutually evolve mechanism for complete waiver of farmers & farm labourers debt, Channi writes to PM

Chandigarh, Nov 30 (UNI) Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Tuesday exhorted the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to accept his proposal for complete waiver of farmers and farm labourers' debt, adding he said Punjab government is ready to take over its share of debt burden along with Union Government.
In a letter to the Prime Minister, Mr Channi emphasized the need to frame a Centre State shared scheme of an appropriate ratio spread over some time with proper modalities to handle this issue and end the debt of farmers and farm labourers once and for all. CM Channi said, "Despite the stressed revenues of the state government, no sacrifice would be big enough than the weight of this moral obligation that we owe to farmer fraternity.”
Urging the Prime Minister, the Chief Minister mentioned today is the day and today is the opportunity and today let's make a fresh start and work towards improving the entire ecosystem of agriculture in Punjab in particular and the nation in general. “We as stakeholders are ready to commit ourselves to any new arrangement that is decided mutually between all the stakeholders”, he asserted.
