“The Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal has nothing to do with the factual information as he has an only motive to woo the voters by distorting the real facts. During the five days tour in Punjab, the AAP supremo tried to impress the farmers by offering them lucrative promises. Moreover, he presented the wrong facts of union budget to farmers.”
He has commented on his twitter that the union budget has nothing for the farmers. The farmers are under debt and the centre government waving off the loans of rich businessmen.
What Kejriwal needs to learn more?
The muffler man has been commenting on the rivals frequently whenever something happens. He needs to prepare himself properly before commenting on social media. He should have gone through the union budget properly because little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Moreover, he should have read the provisions especially announced for the farmers in union budget. He even forgot that the Delhi police have been grilling AAP leaders for instigating a farmer to commit suicide during the rally of Kejriwal. The Chief Minister who did not save a farmer in his own state is putting blames on the rivals.
Provisions for farmers in Union budget 2016
The centre government has allocated Rs 15000 crore to reduce the loan burden to farmers. Under the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana, a budget of Rs 5,500 crore has been allocated.
The increased funding in the budget will go into a gamut of irrigation schemes, crop insurance, the creation of a national e-market for farm produce, higher production of pulses and interest subsidy for easing the burden of loan repayment for farmers.
Further, 89 projects under the Accelerated Irrigation Benefits Programme (AIBP) that are languishing will be fast-tracked.
The centre will spend Rs.17,000 crore on these projects next year, and Rs.86,500 crore in the next five years. Further, the budget created a dedicated long-term irrigation fund under NABARD (National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development), with an initial corpus ofRs.20,000 crore.
The overall budget for the agriculture sector was raised by over 44 per cent, from Rs.24,909 crore in 2015-16 to Rs.35,984 crore in 2016-17.
Without reading budget provision, Kejriwal tweeted in haste
The Chief Minister suddenly tweet a message that the centre government offered nothing for the farmers in debt. Without reading or knowing the facts about the union budget, the AAP head preferred to put message on social media to the woo the farmers community in Punjab. How foolish is the politician who only plays political stunts to win sympathy?
