PM Modi started out by quoting a farming song by to great Kannadiga poet Kuvempu and addressed to farmers as Yogis and proceeded to affirm his government’s commitment to farmers and asserted the role of farmers not only in the country’s economy but also providing active and practical solutions to the problems the farming sector faces. He added that though his MPs have tried a lot to work for the benefit of farmers the Siddaramaiah government has been apathetic to the issue. He further stated that farming is dependent on nature and a holistic approach is needed for the development be it irrigation, soil conservation or the protection of crops for nature does not work according to the government’s schedule. He said that his government has ensured schemes and their timely delivery for every stage in the crop cycle.

The PM added that about 3.5 crore farmers have been linked to the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojna and out of which 14 lakh farmers are from Karnataka. The PM also added that his government has allocated Rs 11 lakh crore for farmers in the budget and the NDA government is committed to empowering farmers at every step, from sowing till selling in the markets (Beej se le ke Bazaar tak).

The PM stated that about 1 crore soil health cards have been issued in Karnataka and about 4000 hectares of land has been brought under micro irrigation in the state. Stating that his government is dedicated to double farmers’ income by 2022, he said that his government has ensured that the farmers get the MSP of 1.5 times that of the production costs for the notified crops. He added that his government has completed works on irrigation within 25-30 months which were pending since over three decades.

Prime Minister Modi asserted that the NDA government’s schemes will ensure that even the next generation will consider farming as a profitable profession, especially with influx of newer technologies in farming, including solar energy.
