The golden sun rose
“Our government is serving the people,” Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said. This government is a government of farmers, victims, laborers and the poor. Our government is a government that gives before asking. It is the government which works according to the aspirations of the people. A golden sun rose in the homes of farmers in the Karjan area.
Without paying the premium, farmers have prepared a crop insurance budget of Rs 2,000 crore in case of heavy rains, droughts and unseasonal rains during the Kharif crop. Each farmer of the state will get Rs 4444 if his crop fails.
Farmers are given a subsidy of Rs 900 per cow per month for natural farming. The scheme will provide a subsidy of Rs 30,000 for construction of godowns for crop storage in the area.
In the last four years, the Gujarat government has purchased more than Rs 15,000 crore of agricultural produce from farmers on support price. Which average Rs. 33333 are given. Thus, Rupani has bought an average of Rs 8,000 worth of goods every year.
“Previous governments have not bought a single rupee of the product at the support price,” Rupani lied. This includes the BJP government of Narendra Modi, Keshubhai Patel, Suresh Mehta and Anandiben Patel.
