BJP govt pursuing anti-farmer policies in J&K: Sham Lal Sharma

Senior Vice-president JKPCC and former Minister Congress, Sham Lal Sharma today accused the BJP-PDP government in the state of adopting “anti-farmer” policies which led to their woes.
Speaking during “Kissan Samelan”at Jatwal, Kathua, Sham said that the present centre and state governments promised farmers that the support price of their yields will be increased by 50% and the same is also incorporated in their election manifesto.
The program was organised by Dewan Khajuria Chairman Kissan Cell Kathua in the presence of G L Chalotra Ex MLA, Pankaj Dogra PCC Secretary (working President Kathua), Sarpanch’s Jagat Ram, Balak Nath,Vinay Sharma and Rakesh Kumar.
Sham said that the BJP government has come to power and more than two years have elapsed but they didn’t fulfill their promises.
“Despite the announcement made by the State Govt of waiver on 50% Kisan Credit Card (KCC) loans, in the Budget Session last year, the department has, however, so far given no such waiver,
“he added.
He said that the State Govt had last year said that to provide immediate relief to the farming community, the Government had announced waiver of 50% KCC loans in case of small and vulnerable farmers in view of the crop loss suffered by them due to floods.
However, the officials in the Department said that no such benefit has been provided to the farmers so far.
