J&K govt working to change the fate of 70% population of farmers: LG Manoj Sinha

सब दर्द मिटा दे हम हर ग़म को सजा दें हम कहते हैं जिसे जीना दुनिया को सीखा दें हम हर पल जो गुजर जाये दामन को तो भर जाये यह सोच के जी लें तो तक़दीर संवर जाये Lt Governor Manoj Sinha More than 13 lakh farmer families are sweating in the fields of Jammu & Kashmir every second and every moment and to change the fate of seventy percent of Kashmir’s population and to pay for every drop of their sweat and to fill their homes with money and grains and for their prosperity, the Jammu & Kashmir administration is resolutely working in that direction, said the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu & Kashmir, Shri Manoj Sinha. The Committee of leading agricultural scientists of the country developed the Holistic Agriculture Development Programme for J&K farmers. The programme has got approval for more than Rs 5000 crore and will be implemented on grounds soon, the Lieutenant Governor said. I understand this and believe that the 70% farmers community works hard to feed the population of J&k and the nation. This 70% populace is the biggest strength of Jammu & Kashmir. Despite facing all the challenges, they are stuck in the field for the betterment of Kashmir. Efforts are being made to implement the HADP schemes on the ground to ensure their success. In the manner under the guidance of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the income of the farmers has been increased, we are trying to move towards the goal that the income of the farmer should be more than that. All our colleagues are trying to make this work so that the farmers of Kashmir should earn more than the farmers of Punjab and Haryana. With this goal, we are all moving forward with this programme, LG said. The administration is trying to implement this project completely. I humbly request the farmer brothers of Budgam to join this programme. If we implement this well, then the son of farmers will not hanker after the SSB competitive exam, he will toil hard in the fields and earn more. We are hoping that this system can be created. The Lieutenant Governor Shri Manoj Sinha ensured the Budgam farmers participating at the Kisan Sampark Abhiyan and the zamindars to take benefit of it. Budgam farmers said they were happy with the programme and it was a good step. HADP is a historical mission, they said. All the 29 schemes will be fulfilled in the next five years. The Kisan Sathi IT Dashboard is a step toward fulfilling that mission. The locals said that these schemes are directly being implemented. New dairy farms are opening, improvement in sheep farming, vegetable farming, saffron cultivation. We are witnessing development in all the sectors, agriculture, horticulture, floriculture, fisheries etc which is a source of pleasure. The farmers have been made members in the HADP policy. This is for the first time that farmers are being given their due, Budgam locals said.
