Rajasthan waives farmers' loans

Rajasthan became the third BJP-ruled state, after Maharashtra and UP, to waive farm loans. The state announced the waiver after reaching a deal with farmers who had been agitating since September 1. Farm loans up to Rs.50,000 will be written off, putting a burden of about Rs.20,000 crore on the Vasundhara Raje government.
