Chief Minister disburses compensation worth Rs.135 Crore directly into the accounts of over 54,000 farmers through e-kshatipurti portal

Financial assistance of Rs. 131.24 crore transferred to accounts of 3,527 beneficiaries under DAYALU Yojana

Our Double Engine Sarkar is continuously working to empower and strengthen the Poor, Farmers, Laborers, Women, and Youth, CM

Chandigarh, June 21 – 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.

CM advancing welfare works for farmers and the poor, Sh. J.P Dalal

Earlier speaking at the event, Finance Minister Sh. J.P Dalal said that Chief Minister, Sh. Nayab Singh is advancing the welfare works initiated by the present state government for farmers and the poor. Our government has provided the most insurance money to farmers. The present state government has facilitated free travel for 80 lakh Antyodaya people for up to 1,000 kilometers within a year through the Happy Yojana, he said.

Sh. J.P Dalal said that our government has given jobs to youth based on merit. We have reserved five marks for youth from poor families. However, there is a ‘Bharti Roko gang’ of Congress that stops recruitment by approaching the High Court. But the BJP government will not let these recruitments fail and will go to the Supreme Court and ensure the jobs of our children are secured, said the Minister.

We will work with Prime Minister's vision of a developed India by 2047, Kiran Choudhry

At the event, Tosham MLA, Smt. Kiran Choudhry said that the BJP has introduced the Deendayal Upadhyaya Antyodaya Parivar Suraksha Yojana for the poor and needy. Under this scheme, Chief Minister, Sh. Nayab Singh has benefitted such eligible families in the state. It is a very beneficial scheme, she said.

She said that Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi's vision of a developed India by 2047 guides our work. The government is continuously working for the welfare of farmers, women, and youth, providing jobs without bribes. All these efforts will rapidly advance Haryana. In the upcoming times, Bhiwani, Dadri, and Mahendragarh will strengthen BJP's hand, and we will continue public welfare works, said Smt. Kiran Choudhry.

MP, Ch. Dharambir Singh, Additional Chief Secretary, Finance Department, Sh. Anurag Rastogi, officers of the district administration and other dignitaries remained present on this occasion.
