Two people standing on the shoulder of the foundation of our country, these are the first young farmers. Former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri had given the slogan Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan. In the last 18 months of the present government in agriculture is very crushed. Agriculture is the backbone of the Indian economy. Its contribution to GDP is only 16 percent, but nearly 50 percent of people get employment in agriculture. In 2008-09, when the global recession was at its peak, the world’s powerful nations in its grip faltered down the demand and consumption were based on self-reliance and efficiency of rural areas based on our country’s gross domestic product (GDP) success in achieving 8 percent growth was achieved. All this is possible on the basis of our agricultural sector and its population.
Since central government has been in power. The contribution of agriculture and the rural economy in the nation has declined. Agriculture sector growth in 2013-14 was 4.7 per cent records. NDA to the UPA government after the power transfer rate is reduced to 1.1 per cent. The Prime Minister has spoken of double-digit GDP growth, but they also must accept the fact that the GDP growth rate of 9 per cent to 4 per cent growth rate in agriculture is essential. During the NDA regime, where agricultural exports in 2003-04 was only $ 7.5 billion, while the last 10 years of the UPA regime in 2013-14 was $ 42.6 billion. In the last three crops due to government mismanagement of the wrong agricultural policy and only 29 per cent for wheat, rice and maize crops have been registered. However, the central government in India and to facilitate business-to-business, of course, but it is limited to only the noise of slogans. Forget the fact that the government is sitting fourth consecutive crop failure tends to the interests of farmers and the government has consistently overlooked.
20 per cent of the country’s 640 districts, 302 districts have less than average rainfall, the drought situation in nearly 50 per cent. El Nino event this year, 14 percent less than the average rainfall is average rain records. Untimely rainfall in winter and natural outbreaks of farmers lost crops and 20 percent wheat, 12 percent decline in production in pulses. Farmers bear brunt of nature’s constant in our country is forced to kill. The frustration and disappointment of today immersed in the trap that is needed for our farmers to get out and hike in MSP and the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme by providing additional employment opportunities for farmers and agricultural day laborers to help the government carry , but unfortunately the government has failed on both counts. Kharif crop in 2013-14 to Rs 420 on the UPA government on the Tur, Rs 135 and Rs 300 on maize had increased the minimum support price on the black soybeans. Despite knowing the current drought conditions NDA government in 2015-16 to Rs 75 on these crops, maize, tur Rs 15 at 16.7 per cent and 16.7 per cent at Rs 15 to Rs 11.1 per cent increase in the support price of black soybean. 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Modi had announced that farmers grow 50 percent increase in the minimum support price of crops will be on production costs. But after achieving power the government has issued instructions to the states that will benefit the government at MSP, its output will be purchased by the FCI. MGNREGA in the world in terms of job creation scheme has been considered unique, but today is rife in rural livelihood distress and the implementation of MGNREGA scheme as required by the human employment days were cut. 220 crore in 2013-14, where the man was employed Day, there has been reduced to Rs 132 crore in 2014-15. Wages, payment of compensation and unemployment allowances in the amount of 72 percent were delaying the release.
In November 2015, the Supreme Court has commented on the implementation of program and has stressed the need to improve it. Today, farmers are frustrated and disappointed, he is unable to see any ray of hope. Cooperative Banks and other farmers from the burden of such debts are severely suppressed. To survive, they have no other source of debt burdened farmers are now forced to take steps like suicide. Farmers in raising their children are finding themselves unable. Only this year, more than 1,000 farmers in Maharashtra’s Marathwada region have committed suicide. It is not a matter of blame, but it is the religion of the measures to provide relief to farmers.
Today, the situation on the agricultural sector was the case in 2006-07, but then Congress government Recognising the suffering of farmers in one lump 72,000 crore farmers in the country. Was waived.The country officially on 9 states and the central government has declared the drought relief of Rs 25,000 crore is sought. The need of the hour and insurance of adequate compensation to the farmers crop insurance premiums amount to be justifiable on. Loans and electricity bills of farmers should be waived. The government should seriously feel the pain of the farmers. But today is only being discussed, are being made too. Nothing is happening on the ground. My home state of Madhya Pradesh shocking incidents are happening daily. The criteria are to be created by the government’s latest survey and the criteria for compensation are to be created intentionally, out of which 90 percent are farmers compensation. It is a very difficult time. Farmers groan, but the government is sleeping the sleep of Kunbkrn, this government woke from a deep sleep and a good day for the farmers of this country, who bring to India.
