Noida: Uttar Pradesh Government led by Yogi Adityanath has cleared cane dues amounting to Rs 1.25 lakh crore to the cane farmers in the last four years, said Mohit Beniwal, western Uttar Pradesh chief of BJP.

He was speaking at a programme held in Noida to mark the completion of four years of the BJP rule in the UP.

According to the news agency PTI, he said, “Along with clearing the cane dues worth Rs 1.25 lakh crore, loans worth Rs 36,000 crore of 86 lakh farmers waived in the last four years.”

His claims have come at a time when farmers in western Uttar Pradesh have alleged that their payments against sugarcane have been pending for a long time while many resent there has been no change in the minimum support price (MSP) for the crop in the last three years.
