"This government will have to clarify everything about loan waiver issue and the promises which they made in the budget," Yeddyurappa said.
"If the government does not clarify things and fail to waive off farm loan completely, then we will start a protest from Monday," he added.


On July 5, Kumaraswamy announced a partial loan waiver of Rupees 34,000 cr, which will benefit farmers whose loans are less than Rs 2 Lakh.
The Kumaraswamy-led JD(S) had resolved to waive farm loans borrowed both from cooperative and nationalised banks within 24 hours of formation of a full-fledged government of their party.


The state has decided against waiving off higher value crop loan.
