New Delhi sources stated that with the government set to transfer the first installment of Rs 2,000 to about 2 crore farmers over the next few days, senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Sunday termed it as a “bribe for votes” and said the “greater shame” is that the Election Commission is unable to stop it. Previously Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday launched the Rs 75,000 crore Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) scheme in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh, by transferring the first installment of Rs 2,000 each to over one crore farmers.



Accordingly today is the 'Cash for Vote' day. Chidambaram said in a series of tweets “The BJP government will officially give a bribe of Rs 2000 per agricultural family to get their votes”. Furthermore the money will go to the cultivating farmer as well as the absentee landlord. He said “Nothing can be more shameful in a democracy than 'Bribe for Votes'. The greater shame is that the Election Commission is unable to stop the 'Bribe for Votes'”.

Moreover an Agriculture Ministry official had said under the scheme, another one crore farmers will be covered in the next 2-3 days. Reportedly in the interim Budget 2019-20, the central government had announced the PM-KISAN scheme under which Rs 6,000 per year will be given in three installments to 12 crore small and marginal farmers holding cultivable land up to two hectares.
