BJP MP Varun Gandhi is aggressive on the issue of farmers these days. After raising the voice of farmers on the issue of sugarcane price, he has started trying to take the Uttar Pradesh government under pressure regarding PM Kisan Scheme. Gandhi has said that the amount of this scheme should be increased from Rs 6000 to Rs 12,000 per year per farmer family. The state government can consider giving an additional Rs 6000 on its behalf. This question related to common farmers is very important regarding the assembly elections to be held next year.
Rural economy expert Pushpendra Singh says that the state government will have to spend Rs 13000 crore on this. With this, the farming needs of small farmers will be easily met. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also talking about focusing on these.
Vijaypal Tomar has also demanded
Rajya Sabha MP and member of DFI-Doubling farmers income committee Vijaypal Tomar has given similar advice to the states.
Tomar says that the state governments should also contribute to the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme. If it is not so, then help the farmers in cash by making a similar scheme. This will greatly benefit the small and marginal farmers. Which is about 86 percent in the country.
