New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday assured that all small and marginalized farmers will be benefitted as per the reforms in agriculture bills.
PM Modi was speaking to Bharatiya Janata Party’s karyakartas across the country on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Deendayan Upadhyaya.
“The reforms in agricylture will benefit most to small and marginal famers. 86 out of 100 farmers belong to this category and they are satisfied. For the first time, they got an option on the price of their produce. There is a tradition of selling in Mandis that if a farmer wants he can sell there or else outside Mandis. Farmers can sell their produce as per his choice.”
PM Modi appealed to all the karyakartas to help farmers and explain them in simple language.
“All BJP Karyakartas should reach out to farmers on the ground & inform them in a very simplified language about the importance & intricacies of the new farm reforms, how these will empower them. Our ground connect will bust the lies & rumours being spread in virtual world,” he said.
PM Modi also pointed out the drawbacks of the previous government.
“Previous governments used to make a complicated web of promises and laws which the farmers or labourers could never understand. Even after increasing production, the income of the farmers did not increase but their loans kept increasing. However, the BJP-led NDA government has constantly attempted to change this situation and has introduced reforms for the welfare of farmers.”
