Support To Farmers Critical:CM KCR

Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao made several suggestions to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for implementation as part of the united fight against Covid-19, especially with regard to agriculture, economy and people of the country.

Stating that agriculture was the lifeline for India as it not only ensured food for all but also livelihood for lakhs of farmers, Rao said: “We are self-sufficient in terms of food production. To ensure that we continue to remain self-sufficient, farm operations must continue and necessary support should be provided to farmers in these testing times”.

As for the food processing industry, he insisted that the Centre make all efforts to operationalise rice mills, oil mills and other affiliated industries. He reiterated the need to link the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) with agriculture for at least two months and support farmers. He pointed out that even if the government was able bear half of labour expenditure, it will help farmers in a big way.
