New Delhi | Pune:

BJP-ruled states are planning to shower farmers with more goodies, including new measures to support rural people in addition to the ₹6,000 that the Centre will pay small and marginal cultivators, as all parties have stepped up efforts to woo rural voters in the run-up to the general elections.


Prime Minister Narendra Modi is seeking a second term in this year’s elections in which the spotlight is on rural issues after several protests by farmers, and the victory of parties like Congress (in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh) and BJP (in Uttar Pradesh) promising loan waivers to farmers.

Agriculture and farmer welfare minister Radha Mohan Singh said the BJP has a strong commitment towards farmers. The Jharkhand government had already promised cash payments to farmers, which along with a similar amount from the PM-KISAN scheme would give each farmer about ₹12,000 a year, he said.

The budget of Uttar Pradesh, which will be presented on Thursday, will focus on farmer welfare, a top-ranking state functionary said
