THE peasants plight was raised during the Bharat Mata Pujan organised at village Sarkhandi.
Ironically, the Government of Madhya Pradesh bagged Krishi Karman Award for third time but condition of peasants has not been improved. The office-bearers of Bharatiya Kisan Sangh Vijay Gontiya and others participated in programme.
The representatives of peasants from hundreds of villages who arrived there to participate in the programme raised issues over corruption in canals making, inadequate power supply, below standard seeds, denying the purchase at the purchase centres etc problems were raised.
The State General Secretary of Bharatiya Kisan Sangh Narayan Singh stressed on the need to promote the bio-farming, he said that excessive use of chemical fertilisers make the land barren. He lamented that the peasants are becoming patients of dreaded diseases like cancer, asthama in the absence of precautionary measures while spraying the pesticides.
He said that only solution to the problem is bio-farming.
Other guests said that allocation of budget for agriculture is much less that those of other countries. Under such circumstances, tall claim of increasing the income of peasants two fold is playing gimmick. Why the condition of peasants of State has not been improved even after winning Krishi Karman award three times?
The office-bearers and members of BKS Vijay Gontiya, Shiv Patel, Raghvendra Patel, Prahlad Patel, Dhananjay Patel, Stendra Rajput and others along with administrative officers and employees were also present on the occasion.
