In order to bring the farmers in their favor during the era of chaotic agitation, the government may have given some amount of relief or relief directly to them, the government has completely demolished this estimate. It was continuously being discussed that the government can increase the amount of Prime Minister Kisan Samman Nidhi from Rs 6000 to Rs 10000 per year in the budget.
However, in the era of ever-increasing financial losses, there was neither scope nor necessity. Because it is dangerous to keep the amount of money directly in the hands of the farmers and to increase it in the same way as a small but very powerful group of farmers in the country has got used to the minimum support price.
And, its damage has to cease from their desire to make new experiments in agriculture. Due to the cultivation of paddy, Punjab would be barren and the land due to disease is dangerous. That is why even before the budget, I was confident that the government was not going to increase the amount of Prime Minister Kisan Samman Nidhi, but commenting on the agitated agitation against agricultural laws was necessary in the budget and that comment was very elaborate from Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman Came from
The leaders of the farmers union opposing the agricultural laws have been able to convince a group of farmers in Punjab that they will stop getting the minimum support price and the mandis will gradually be abolished by the new agricultural law. However, on both these matters, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, BJP National President Jagat Prakash Nadda, the entire government and the entire party are constantly giving cleanliness, but the budget is an authentic document and, therefore, the budget I needed to get clear on this from the finance minister.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has tried to show the mirror to the leaders of the farmers union by giving a budget proposal for the betterment of the APMC mandis, along with the figures of government purchases. It is not easy for the union leaders who have gone to the extent of anarchy regarding agricultural laws to dismiss the figures of the Finance Minister in the budget.
With these figures, the government has once again made it clear that farmers cannot move back from the path of betterment. The Finance Minister said that the government has steadily increased the government’s purchase of produce and given a minimum support price of one and a half times the cost.
The Finance Minister said in the budget speech that at the end of the 2013-14 Manmohan government, the government’s purchase of wheat was Rs 33,874 crore and in the Modi government the government purchased wheat worth Rs 62,802 crore in 2019-20 and Rs 75,000 crore in 2020-21. Purchased government of In the Modi government itself, 35.57 lakh farmers got the benefit of government purchases in 2019-20 and in the Modi government in 2020-21 43.36 lakh farmers got the benefit of government purchases.
In 2013-14, the government purchase of paddy was worth Rs 63,928 crore and the government purchase of Rs 1,41,930 crore in 2019-20 and Rs 1,72,752 crore in 2020-21. The Finance Minister has also responded to the other confusion being spread by the chaotic peasant leaders. The Agricultural Infrastructure Fund can be used to improve basic facilities in APMC mandis. 1,000 new mandis will be connected to the electronic mandi system. There is a budget provision of Rs 40,000 crore for rural infrastructure sector, which is Rs 10,000 crore more than last year. A target of giving 16.5 lakh crore agricultural loans has been set.
It is clear from the budget speech and budget proposals of Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman that the Modi government is not going to end any traditional system for the benefit of farmers, but it has also become more clear that betterment of the farmer from the traditional system This seems impossible to achieve and, therefore, the traditional as well as modern system will be implemented faster. The three agricultural laws are the surest documents to improve the condition of the farmers through the modern agricultural system and the government is making every effort to prepare the way for the betterment of the farmers.
