Govt planning to impose tax on farmers: Nath
Amid reports of the Centre discussing taxing rich farmers, former chief minister Kamal Nath claimed that the farmers are under debt and the government shall rethink about imposing income tax on them. “I am surprised with the news in which the government is planning to impose income tax on farmers. Farmers of our nation are struggling to get proper cost of their produce and the government is planning to impose tax,” Nath posted on his social media account on ‘X’.
He further said, “First, we have to take firm steps to bring our farmers out of debt and to ensure their income.” “In my short-term government, I waived off the loan of 27 lakh farmers, but the new government has stopped the scheme,” he claimed.
