New Delhi: BJP Kisan morcha to organize farmers meet today

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Kisan Morcha will organize a meeting of farmers in New Delhi today to highlight the NDA government’s initiatives for them.

BJP Chief Amit Shah will inaugurate the event and Unions Agriculture minister Radha Mohan Singh and his deputy Sanjeev Baliyan will also address the meet.

Earlier, the party had organized such farmers’ rallies in Madhya Pradesh, Odisha and Karnataka in February.

BJP Kisan Morcha President Vijaypal Singh Tomar said that the government has decided to help double the income of farmers by 2022 and the Union budget this year has also put focus on pro-farmer schemes and maximum thrust on the farm sector.

Kisan morcha has branded the new crop insurance scheme of the NDA government as a ‘historic’ step.
