Mumbai, Apr 24 (UNI) Entire Opposition today staged a walkout in the Maharashtra legislative council, protesting against 'unsatisfactory' reply of cooperation minister Dr Patangrao Kadam about the loan waiver announced for farmers.

Replying to the discussion on the issue, he said the government was making all efforts for helping farmers.

He said the Central government so far has not given any written direction on the loan waiver of Rs 60,000 crore and added that after receiving those orders, the state government would decide about its further steps.

However, the Opposition demanded that farmers, who have more than five acres of land, should also be given some incentives.
