2.5 crore farmers of Uttar Pradesh got benefit

In his address, Radha Mohan Singh said that 2.5 crore farmers have benefited under Kisan Samman Nidhi in Uttar Pradesh. While felicitating 71 farmers of Mathura, the former Union Minister also said that Rs 1.43 lakh crore has been paid to sugarcane growers in Uttar Pradesh. Speaking on the occasion, Uttar Pradesh Power Minister Shrikant Sharma said that the state government pays Rs 11,000 crore as subsidy on electricity as it charges only Rs 1.25 per unit from farmers. He said that the central and state governments have always worked for the welfare of the farmers.

Farmers are being misled

On the ongoing protest of the farmers, Shrikant Sharma said that those who mislead them for their political gains will not succeed as the farmers have full faith in the country’s ‘Pradhan Sevak’ i.e. the Prime Minister. State Dairy, Fisheries and Animal Husbandry Minister Laxmi Narayan Choudhary said that farmers in the state are now paid the price of their produce within 24 hours. He said that now farmers do not have to struggle for urea in the state as it is easily available.
