Appreciating that farmers in the country have completed their agricultural work with responsibility and dedication even during the difficult time of the lockdown which affected industries and businesses, the minister said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the country is dealing effectively with the Coronavirus crisis since the past three months. The rabi crops were harvested and the selling procedure completed without any hindrance. Agricultural production has become the pivot of the country’s economy.

It is essential to plan beforehand, make correct decisions and implement them in the field. Quoting the slogan given by Prime Minister “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Vigyan, Jai Anusandhan”, Tomar stressed that the Prime Minister has visualized an Atmanirbhar or self-reliant India keeping agriculture and villages at the center stage. We must ensure an abundant Kharif crop.
