The BJP has persistently claimed that the loans haven't been waived off, while the Congress leaders had dropped bundles of documents at Shivraj Singh Chouhan's home on Tuesday that mentioned names of nearly 21 lakh beneficiaries.
The Congress has also been sharing a list of beneficiaries, which include names of Chouhan's brother and cousin.
