The BJP has launched a pro­gramme to train farm­ers to en­sure they get the ben­e­fit of the Cen­tre and states’ schemes and poli­cies

In or­der to woo the an­gry farm­ers the Bhar­tiya Janata Party has launched a pro­gramme to ed­u­cate and train the farm­ers, which was an­nounced at the na­tional co­or­di­na­tion meet­ing held at the party head­quar­ters in Delhi on Thurs­day.

Hav­ing made this a part of the sec­ond phase of Pan­dit Deendayal Upad­hyaya Prashik­shan Ma­hab­hiyan, the Union Agri­cul­ture Min­is­ter Radha Mo­han Singh, said, “Our fo­cus is to en­sure that more and more farm­ers get the ben­e­fit of the schemes and poli­cies of the Cen­tre and state govern­ment. There is ex­cel­lent work be­ing done by govern­ment but many times the farm­ers are not able to avail the ben­e­fits of the poli­cies and schemes and there­fore it’s also the duty of the field level work­ers to en­sure that th­ese ben­e­fits reach the farm­ing fam­i­lies.”

BJP na­tional gen­eral sec­re­tary Mu­ralid­har Rao in­formed that farmer train­ing will be held at four lev­els— na­tional, state, district and as­sem­bly level. “Our idea is to de­sign the farm­ers train­ing mo­d­ule with a bot­tom-up ap­proach and that’s why even be­fore de­sign­ing the cur­ricu­lum, we are first seek­ing in­puts from the field work­ers at the ground level. We want this train­ing to be use­ful and prac­ti­cal. Even­tu­ally this train­ing may be con­ducted at around 11,000 man­dal level,” Rao said.

“This is for the first time, not only in In­dia but any­where in the world, that any po­lit­i­cal party is try­ing to im­part such an ex­ten­sive train­ing for the ben­e­fit of such a large num­ber of farm­ers across the coun­try. The train­ing ac­tiv­ity of the farm­ers will now be hence­forth a per­ma­nent ac­tiv­ity of the Kis­san Mor­cha to be held reg­u­larly. Kis­san Mor­cha will also cre­ate a team of trained ex­perts who could as­sist the farm­ers ac­cord­ing to the needs of that par­tic­u­lar ge­o­graph­i­cal area and spe­cific ter­rain,” Shailen­dra Sen­gar, Vice Pres­i­dent of Kis­san Mor­cha said.
