Rahul Gandhi hails Yogi Adityanath's farm loan waiver, terms it parital relief
He, however, cautioned the Central government against "discriminating among states".
"A partial relief for UP (Uttar Pradesh) farmers, but a step in the right direction. The Congress has always supported loan waivers for farmers in distress."
He also advised the Centre not to "play politics with our farmers who are suffering across the country".
"The Central government must have a national response to the widespread distress and not discriminate...," he said.
The Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday cleared a Rs 36,359-crore proposal allowing waiver of loans for marginal and small farmers of the state.
