Bhopal. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that efforts are on continuously to ensure that the farmer gets a fair price. In the catastrophe of Corona, we have continued to buy continuously. We have also bought gram, lentils, mustard. We assessed that moong prices were falling and then we took a quick decision that we will buy moong even if there is a storm or rain.
The Chief Minister started the registration of moong procurement in the state and said this while discussing with the farmers. He said that our aim is to provide remunerative price to the farmer for his produce. Corona virus is there now, sell the product with caution. Farmer brothers’ cooperation is needed in this, be patient, the purchase will be done peacefully. We are determined to do it for you.
On this occasion, Narmada, a farmer of Dewas, said that many schemes are getting benefits, for small farmers, Chief Minister Kisan Kalyan Yojana and Pradhan Mantri Krishak Samman Nidhi are very beneficial.
The CM said that the Prime Minister’s dream is to double the income of farmers. For this, our continuous efforts are going on to stand with the farmer with full force. Today there is 42 lakh hectares of irrigated land in Madhya Pradesh and it has to be taken up to 65 lakh hectares.
He said the farmers that you have shed your sweat in the sun, we also resolve that we will give you the price of every drop of your sweat. Many congratulations to all of you. The Chief Minister said that the government is making every effort to increase production. The miracle of getting 3 crops happened only in our government. Plenty of electricity was made available due to which irrigation was plentiful. Many efforts were also made to reduce the cost of production.
