Union Home Minister, Shri Amit Shah expresses gratitude to Prime Minister

Union Home Minister Shri Amit Shah has welcomed the Union Cabinet decision to hike the Minimum Support Price (MSP) of six Rabi crops. Expressing gratitude to Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, Shri Amit Shah, in a series of tweets, said, “Every day and every moment of Modi Government has been devoted towards welfare of farmers and the poor. Modi Government has once again reiterated its resolve towards welfare of farmers and the poor by raising the MSP of six rabi crops today. I express my heartfelt gratitude to Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji and Union Agriculture Minister Shri Narendra Tomar ji for this.”

The Union Home Minister said, “Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has hiked MSP of Wheat by Rs. 50 per quintal, Gram – Rs. 225 per quintal, Barley – Rs. 75 per quintal, Lentils – Rs. 300 per quintal, Mustard and rapeseed – Rs. 225 per quintal and Safflower – Rs. 112 per quintal. This unprecedented hike in MSP by Modi Government is a pragmatic effort towards doubling farmers’ income.”

Shri Amit Shah said, “Those trying to gain lost political ground by provoking farmers, procured just 1.52 Lakh Metric Tonnes of pulses from farmers when they were in power between 2009-14, while Modi govt has procured 76.85 Lakh Metric Tonnes of pulses during 2014-19. This difference of 4,962% clearly exposes their hypocrisy & proves dedication of Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji.”

The Union Home Minister said, “Those opposing Modi Government’s agricultural reforms bills are against the welfare of our farmers and policy of giving them the right value for their produce. These people do not want our hardworking farmer brothers who feed the country to ever be as rich and empowered as they themselves are. However, Modi Government will give farmers their rightful dues.”
