Amitabh Bachchan To Help 850 UP Farmers to Pay Off Their Loans

He said over 350 farmers' loans that were difficult to pay off, were paid off too to prevent them from committing suicide

Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan says over 850 farmers from Uttar Pradesh have been identified, and their loans to the tune of Rs 5.5 crore will be taken care of.

“A list of over 850 farmers from Uttar Pradesh have been identified and their loans amounting to over 5.5 crore shall be taken care of… The assistance from the Bank in question assists in its execution and its benevolence,” the 76-year-old actor posted on his blog.

He had recently, through the government agencies, identified 44 families who had lost their loved ones – martyrs who gave up their lives for the country – and distributed cash to them as a gesture.

Big B said on his blog that it was a “satisfying experience”.
