JanaSena party chief Pawan Kalyan on 12th December said though he tasted the poll debacle, he’s still proud to be a politician.
Talking about farmer issues, Pawan Kalyan said small and marginal Farmers were unable to use machinery in the fields and these farmers were not getting labour except like farmers like Jagan Reddy.
The small farmers were crushing in the systemas they were not getting even the support price. The YSR Congress party 151 MLAs should shun making awkward statements and take up constructive work for the sake of farmers.
The YCP leaders must think of how they could introduce mechanization in the small cultivations and provide a profitable price for farmers instead of support price.
He said Sir Arthur Cotton has been revered as a God in Godavari districts because he served the farming community with a vision. He advised Jagan Reddy not to do politics always and asked him to stay in the CM post for a long time by making good to the farmers. He also urged the bank officials to provide loans to the farmers instead of giving crores of rupees loans to the corporates, who were leaving the country creating bad debts.
Prepare 1 lakh young farmers.
Stating that Janasena has given top priority for farmers in its manifesto, Kalyan said that party would provide Rs 5,000 pension to farmer per month to encourage the farming as by 2050 there would be the huge crisis of food and there would be an acute shortage of drinking water. Hence, it has proposed to prepare one lakh, young farmers.
“I’m making a promise to the farming community that organic agriculture would be initiated in a big way and suggested that there should be a union for farmers also. There were unions for factory workers and others. He have a clarion call to the farming community to become unite and Janasena would relentlessly fight in support of the farming community, he added.
Special focus on agriculture from January 2020.
The Janasena President announced that his party would lay a special focus on the agriculture from January 2020 and he would tour every village to support farmers to demand profitable price not support price.
The government must declare Rs 1500 per paddy bag instead of Rs 1300, he said.
