Agriculture Sector Under  Modi: Story of Lies & More Lies!

Go Back to 2016

Please follow the link to a blog I wrote in 2016:

In the above blog I had stated that the plan to double farmer’s income by 2022 is a lie.

Budget Speech 2018

Modi & BJP, emboldened by election successes, have continued with lies in this year’s budget speech as well.

FM said on MSP of agricultural products today: “Only increasing the MSP is not enough, the government will fix the MSP of agricultural products at 1.5 times the market rate”.

He also said: “The government was focused to develop rural and agricultural sector”.

Truth

In 4 years of Modi rule farmers have suffered a lot. Average agriculture growth has been 1.7% per year. To double the farmer’s income the required annual rate of growth should have been 12-13%.

Solution

Opposition, media and public should question the government on this blatant propagation of lies. Yashwant Sinha or Arun Shourie should file a PIL on the subject and expose the lies of the government in court.

Government should be thus forced to adopt pro-farmer policies and genuinely improve the state of farmers and not be allowed to get away with blatant lies!
