Today Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that farmers are going to benefit directly from the new agrarian reform laws. And we are getting such reports that the public has started benefiting from the Agricultural Reform Act. He said that new agrarian reform laws were very important for Indian farmers.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi was saying all these things during the launch of the door-to-door FiberNet scheme in Bihar. For information, let us know that elections are going to be held in Bihar in the coming November.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that now with the new agrarian reform laws, farmers will be able to sell their crop anywhere. This will give them more profits. And you will get more price for your crop.
Farmer will be able to sell his crop at higher prices Narendra Modi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that after the implementation of the new agrarian reform law, farmers will be able to sell their crop anywhere at a higher price. He said that now farmers can sell their goods only in Mandi. After the implementation of this law, now farmers will be able to sell their goods anywhere. Where they will get a higher price, they will sell their goods. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that we are getting reports that farmers have started getting benefit of these laws. Giving the example of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that here we have a report that farmers are getting 25 to 30% more prices of edible oil.
Similarly, potato growers are also getting higher prices. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that now farmers in the mandis have started getting higher prices. Farmers are getting 20% higher prices in mandis than before.
Mandi system will not end Prime Minister Narendra Modi
Narendra Modi said that some people are saying that the presently released mandi system will be scrapped in the coming century. I want to assure you that the agricultural mandis will not be abolished but an additional option has been given to the farmers to sell their crops. Wherever you will get a higher price, you will be able to sell your goods.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that this allegation is absolutely wrong that we want to close the agricultural mandis. He said that the NDA government has modernized agricultural markets. And have implemented computerize system there.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi farmers will continue the minimum support price
Narendra Modi said that the lie is being spread in the country that the minimum support price will be withdrawn after the new agrarian reform law is implemented. But I want to assure you that there is and will continue to be continued. Nobody can eliminate it. He said that the NDA government has increased the minimum support price. And this sequence will continue even further.
Narendra Modi, will benefit farmers from contract farming
Prime Minister Narendra Modi defended his second agrarian reform law, saying that contract farming would benefit farmers. He said that at present farmers have small farms of bighas one by two. This increases the cost of their agriculture. Farmers also get lower prices for their crops due to lower yield. In such a situation, if many people together contract with a company, then they will get a fair price for their crop.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that it will be the responsibility of the company that will contract with the farmers, to provide good seed medicine and all other facilities to the farmer.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that with the new agrarian reform laws, farmers will get modern technology and they will be able to easily deliver their goods internationally.
Giving the example of Bihar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that I was told that 15 farmer organizations have contracted with a very large rice exporter company here. He said that now farmers do not need to go to any market to sell rice. Their rice will easily reach the international level.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, will come up with new opportunities for investment in agriculture
For agricultural reforms, Narendra Modi said that these reforms will open doors to new investment in agriculture. And investment in industries will also be done by industrialists in the village. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that this will bring huge investment in agriculture. Which will directly benefit the farmers.
Giving an example, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that suppose a young man has to start his own startup. And he wants to open a chips factory. So now he will be able to compromise directly with the farmers. Can buy more potatoes. This will provide good quality potatoes to the youth. And the farmers will also earn more.
He said that startups will help farmers to produce good quality potatoes. This will benefit both farmers and startups. Earlier it used to be that startup companies had to go to the mandis. And from there, potatoes had to be bought at high prices. Whereas now these companies will be able to buy potatoes directly from farmers.
Narendra Modi, farmers will remain the owner of the land
Narendra Modi said that the owner of the land will remain the farmer. He cited the example of dairy for this, he said that dairy provides farmers with excellent medical facilities for their cattle rearers. Helps in their care. And provides modern technology. Despite all this, the owner of the animals remains the farmer. In the same way, companies will help farmers after these new agrarian reform laws. But the owner of the fields will remain the farmer.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that we have also changed the anti-hoarding laws. With this, farmers will now be able to keep their crops in large cold storage. And will be able to deposit stock. This will give them better prices for their crops.
