Senior BJP leader and former Union Cabinet Minister Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today said here that some people, who are tensed due to transformation of India from “agriculture centric country” to “farmers’ welfare centric country”, are roaming around with “cart of conspiracies” to misguide the farmers.
While addressing “Ganv Mahotsav”, organised at Bilaspur in Rampur, Shri Naqvi said that those who misused the farmers’ welfare as “device of deception” for their narrow minded political self-interests, are disturbed as the BJP has ensured empowerment of the farmers.
Shri Naqvi said that the Modi-Yogi Governments’ commitment to double the income of the farmers has “quadrupled the worries” of middlemen and those who politically exploited the farmers for several decades.
Shri Naqvi said that historic and pro-farmers reforms by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi led Government have ensured “happiness in eyes and prosperity in life” of crores of farmers of the country. These reforms have created the path of prosperity for the farmers.
Shri Naqvi said that in “Amrit Kaal”, agriculture based India has moved forward on the path of farmer welfare centric nation where farmers are getting respect for their hard work and fair price for their produce by providing them freedom from the clutches of middlemen. MSP of almost all crops has been increased significantly by the Modi Government.
Shri Naqvi said that Prime Minister Shri Modi is committed to welfare of villages and farmers of the country. More than 11 crore farmers have been benefitted through “PM Kisan Samman Nidhi” during the last about 9 years, about Rs 2 lakh 40 thousand crore have been given to the farmers under the scheme which has benefitted especially small farmers of the country. “Fasal Bima Yojana” has benefitted more than 11 crore 40 lakh farmers, Soil Health Cards have been issued to about 23 crore farmers.
Shri Naqvi said that efforts of the Modi Government have made the Indian agriculture sector strong and self-reliant. Today, “Annadatas” of the country are providing food grains and other products to the entire world. Last year, agricultural products worth more than Rs 4 lakh crore were exported, which is the highest ever.
As a part of three-day “Ganv Mahotsav”, which started on 17th March, an exhibition was also organised on agriculture, farmers, modern farming technology, “green tractor”, electric scooter etc. Information regarding farmers and agriculture welfare schemes of the Centre and the state government were also provided to the farmers.
On the occasion, Shri Naqvi also felicitated Corona warriors, security forces personnel, entrepreneurs and those who are playing laudable role in farming sector. Uttar Pradesh Minister Shri Baldev Singh Aulakh and other prominent people were also present on the occasion.
