Chandigarh – Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Nayab Singh said that the Center and State's double-engine government is continuously working to empower the poor, farmers, laborers, women, and youth. Under the leadership of Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi, various welfare schemes are being implemented for all sections of society, which has increased public trust in our government. If anyone thinks about the welfare of the poor, farmers, and marginalized sections of society, it is Sh. Narendra Modi, said Sh. Nayab Singh.

In a programme held today in Bhiwani district, the Chief Minister reiterated his government’s commitment to farmer welfare by disbursing a compensation amount of Rs. 135 crore for damaged crops in Rabi-2024 directly into the accounts of over 54, 000 farmers across the state through the e-Fasal Kshatipurti Portal. Besides this, under the Deendayal Upadhyaya Antyodaya Parivar Suraksha Yojana (DAYALU), he also released financial assistance of Rs.131.24 crore into the accounts of 3, 527 eligible beneficiaries, he said.

Sh. Nayab Singh mentioned that the present state government is continuously working to strengthen the poor through various schemes. Over the last 10 years, under the leadership of Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi, the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana has been running to ensure the security and empowerment of farmers.

In the past 9.5 years, the double-engine government has provided Rs. 12, 500 crore as compensation to farmers

The Chief Minister while highlighting significant differences between the previous government's tenure and ours said that in 10 years, the Congress government gave only Rs. 1, 100 crore as crop damage compensation to Haryana's farmers, while our double-engine government has given Rs.12, 500 crore in the last 9.5 years.

Opposition spread misinformation about MSP, central government continuously increased MSP

Sh. Nayab Singh said that the opposition spread misinformation claiming that this government is anti-farmer and would abolish MSP. However, just two days ago, the central government increased the MSP of crops to benefit farmers. In Haryana, the double-engine government also buys 14 crops at MSP, he said.

In the previous governments, farmers used to get cheques of Rs 2 and Rs 5

The Chief Minister said that the previous government made a mockery of farmers. When Bhupinder Singh Hooda was Chief Minister, farmers were given cheques of Rs. 2 and Rs. 5 as compensation. In contrast, our double-engine government provides cheques of Rs. 30, 000, Rs. 40, 000, and Rs. 50, 000 for crop damage due to natural disasters.

If anyone thinks about the welfare of the poor, farmers, and marginalized sections, it is Sh. Narendra Modi, CM

Sh. Nayab Singh said that upon taking the oath for the third time as Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi first signed for farmer welfare. Under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana, he provided Rs. 20, 000 crore in benefits to farmers. Besides this, he also ensured housing for 3 crore poor families in the next 5 years. The Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi always thinks about the welfare of the poor, farmers, and marginalized sections, he said.

The Chief Minister said that farmers are producing more today than in 2014, and the government is purchasing it at MSP. He said that the present state government has planned to provide subsidies to farmers for purchasing agricultural machinery like tractors, reapers, and rotavators. The central government has linked mandis with e-NAM, allowing farmers to sell their produce at profitable prices in any mandi. The government is standing with the poor, farmers, and every section, ensuring they face no difficulties, said Sh. Nayab Singh.
