Home Minister Amit Shah expresses gratitude to PM Modi for raising MSP of Rabi crops

New Delhi, Sep 21 (UNI) Expressing his gratitude to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi for raising the Minimum Support Price for farms produces on Monday, Home Minister Amit Shah said that each moment of Modi Government has been devoted to the welfare of farmers and poor. Taking to twitter, he said “Today, by increasing the MSP of 6 Rabi crops, the central government, under the leadership of the Prime Minister, has reiterated its same resolve. I express my deep gratitude to @narendramodi and @nstomar”.

He further said that by increasing the MSP for wheat by Rs 50 per quintal, Rs 225 for gram, Rs 78 for barley, Rs 300 for lentil, Rs 225 for mustard and rapeseed and RS 112 for safflower today, the Modi Government has made meaningful effort towards doubling the income of farmers by this historical increase.

Digging at political parties, Mr Shah further said “Those who have lost their political ground and provoking the farmers, they bought only 1.25 lakh metric tons of pulses till 2009-14, while the Modi Government has purchased 76.85 lakh MT of pulses in 2014-19. This difference of 4962 percent clearly shows their hypocrisy and dedication of Modi ji as well.

Those who are opposing the Modi government’s agricultural reform Bills are actually opposed to the prosperity of farmers and to the worth value of their produce. These people do not want that the food provider who feeds the country will ever be as rich and empowered as them. But the Modi Government is determined to give them their rights.

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) chaired by the PM Modi on September 21 has approved the increase in the MSP for all mandated Rabi crops for marketing season 2021- 22. This increase is in the line with the recommendation of Swaminathan Commission.

The highest increase in MSP has been announced for lentil (Rs. 300 per quintal) followed by gram and rapeseed & mustard (Rs 225 per quintal each) and safflower (Rs 112 per quintal). For barley and wheat, an increase of Rs 75 per quintal and Rs 50 per quintal respectively has been announced.
