Due to the efforts of the government in the past 10 years, there has been no opposition in the gaon parikrama yatra. This includes the Kisan Fasal Yojana, the Kisan Samman Nidhi, the crop insurance, the Kisan Rail Deep Irrigation, the Nano Urea, and the 50 percent subsidies to 300 units free. The farmers are very enthusiastic about electricity, and the MSP on crops has increased 1.5 and 2 times, respectively, under the Modi government. We have reached 1.25 lakh villages, said Rajkumar Chahar.

He further added that the main issue at present seems to be MSP. There has been a lot of buying on MSP for some crops in the state of Punjab. The MSP has kept increasing with the increase in production. The exports are also increasing. The government itself is sitting for talks all the time. We will find a solution through the talks. The government has taken decisions in favour of farmers in the past, and it will continue to do so in the future. There are some issues that need to be discussed properly in the interests of farmers.

The Lebi Movement

As per the reports of ANI, Rajkumar Chahar informed that the Lebi movement, also known as the wheat purchasing centre in the local language, was first carried out by farmers in Uttar Pradesh under the rule of Indira Gandhi. The MSP rate at the time was low, and the wheat was being sold at 1.5 times the expensive price. At that time, the farmers were harassed by the government and purchased the wheat at low prices.

“The main issue is the MSP, and the government won’t be able to solve it in a short period of time. It will only be possible to come to a conclusion through proper discussion,” Chahar said.
