AD­VICE TO FARM­ERS

The Asian Age - - Edit -

Farm­ers have de­cided to ap­proach po­lit­i­cal par­ties with their de­mands. These in­clude a fair price for farm pro­duce, loan waiver and pen­sion. The first two are jus­ti­fied and much re­quired. How­ever, it is best not to push for loan waivers, see­ing as time and again, they have been hood­winked on this ac­count, by ev­ery po­lit­i­cal party, elec­tion af­ter elec­tion. In­stead, they should de­mand qual­ity seeds, fer­tilis­ers and ad­e­quate wa­ter at sub­sidised prices.
