Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said that NDA govt is the only government which has devoted its 6 years to the farmers. The real demand of the farmers was remunerative prices. MSP has risen phenomenally from the past levels. Javadekar further accused Congress and opposition parties of ignoring farmers’ interests and keeping them poor to ensure cheap grain prices. The union minister said that the Modi government has empowered farmers by implementing the Swaminathan Commission report to give them remunerative prices through MSP.
