Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal declares unprecedented compensation to rain-hit farmers; highest ever by any government in India

Delhi Elections 2015 and AAP

By Newsgram Staff Writer

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) issued unprecedented compensation to the farmers whose crops have been destroyed by the recent unseasonal rains and hailstorms.

The decision of the Arvind Kejriwal led government to provide a compensation of Rs. 50,000 per hectare (Rs 20,000 per acre) to every affected farmer is highest ever by any government in India.

CM Arvind Kejriwal also declared other steps including subsidy to farmers for the purchase of seeds and fertilizers. He reiterated at a public meeting held at Mundka assembly constituency that his government is committed to safeguarding the interests of farmers in Delhi.

Each decision of the AAP government has highlighted its pro-people moral fiber, and it is also expected that the farmer compensation in Delhi will set an example for other states where the unseasonal rains have destroyed farmers’ crops.

Chief Minster stated that, “The compensation amount was agreed upon following the survey conducted by officials. Objections by farmers if any about the extent of loss will be decided in the panchayat meetings where respective MLAs and concerned officials of the area will be present.”

Kejriwal, on farmers’ complaints of not getting tubewell connections for irrigating the fields, said that Delhi Jal Board has been directed to clear the pending applications at the earliest. Also, the announcement of considering the demand of farmers of cheap electricity (different slabs) for farming was also made by the CM.

AAP also appealed to all of its volunteers to corroborate a resounding success of the April 22, 2015, march to Parliament against the Modi government’s anti-farmer land acquisition ordinance.
