Government has fulfilled all promises made to the people: Badal

Ranchi: Agriculture Minister Badal said that according to the guidelines and feelings of Chief Minister Hemant Soren the agriculture department has worked with full sensitivity in the field of agriculture in the interest of the people of the state.

While addressing the state-level Rabi Karmshala 2022 at Animal Husbandry Bhawan, Hesag said that people have also gone through challenges during the Corona pandemic and after that, they had to also face the tragedy of drought and now the sound of Covid’s return is heard again, even after this all the promises made to the farmers have been fulfilled. 

Agriculture Minister Badal said that the government took many decisions in the difficult situation and the Chief Minister took care of the sentiments. Along with this, continuous efforts were made to create departmental coordination due to which many positive results have come out in the agriculture sector. He said that every year the people of the state keep an eye on the Agriculture Department so decisions have been taken in the interest of the farmers with full seriousness. 

To make the concept of Smart Village a reality, there is a need to make co-ordination with all the concerned departments and asked the officials to cooperate with those farmers who are not able to reach the Pragya Kendra and are not getting the benefit of the scheme by taking cooperation from Kisan Mitra.

Talking about linking the deprived farmers with the schemes, he said that a list of such farmers should be prepared so that the benefits of the schemes could reach them. In 3 years of government we are reaching 30 lakh farmer families of the state this is a big achievement for us but our target is to reach 5800000 farmers of the state and ensure the contribution of the farmers of the state up to 20 percent in the GDP of the state.

Badal said that more than five lakh new members have joined the cooperative, and monitoring should also be done to see how active the new members are in the cooperative. He informed that Rs 461 crore has been allocated to all the districts under the Chief Minister’s Drought Relief Scheme. The department is going to give its visiting card to the farmer so that he can be assured that the state government is with him.

He said that the state government has high hopes for them and the senior officials should share their experience so that they can perform better in the field of agriculture. He said that the commitment in the department should be visible from top to bottom so that we can play our role honestly in fulfilling the dreams of Birsa farmers.

He said that if the news of Jharkhand is published in the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal it is because of the collective efforts of the department.

Addressing the State Level Rabi Workshop, Agriculture Secretary Abu Bakar Siddiqui said that no one can ignore the agriculture sector, because agriculture contributes 20 percent to the country’s GDP. The aim of the department is to make the farmers of the state self-reliant by strengthening food livelihood and the rural economy.
