Jaipur, Feb 20 (UNI) Criticising Rajasthan government for inadequate financial assistance to state farmers for their damaged crops, veteran Congress leader Parasram Maderna has sought Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi's intervention for a Central package for the affected.
In a letter to Ms Gandhi, he said a grant of Rs 126 crore from the state government was not enough for the farmers whose crops were damaged due to bad weather for a third consecutive season.
''The BJP government was playing politics with the agrarian community by just releasing Rs 126 against an estimated damage of Rs 1000 crore,'' he said.
Meanwhile, a large number of farmers accompanied by a Congress delegation were scheduled to meet Ms Gandhi in New Delhi tomorrow to seek immediate relief from the Centre.
