On Monday, Swatantra Dev Singh, Jal shakti Minister of Uttar Pradesh said despite deficient rainfall in the state, the irrigation department was working to provide enough water to farmers from canals, ponds and dams for sowing Kharif Crops.

While speaking in a program “Suno Kisan Hai Hum” organized at Parikalp Bhawan auditorium, Telibagh Singh said that Farmers and water conservation scientists should do research on better production of the crops and water conservation in various regions of the state.

Adding to his speech minister said that agricultural scientists should take an initiative to make farmers wealthy with the available resources. The country will progress only with the prosperity of farmers. The progress of the agriculture sector is incomplete without strengthening the farmers. There is a need to make the agriculture sector more useful and profitable.

Singh appealed to the farmers to put efforts to make the land fertile, save water, and ensure quality crop production.“When the soil gets water on time, it gives a return gift to farmers in form of good crop. 

The farmers will get a fair price for their produce and it will pave way for prosperity in the villages”, the Swatantra dev added.

He also said that Water Conservation is necessary for future generations. The irrigation department is working to provide adequate irrigation facility to the farmers. Water should be saved with better coordination between irrigation and water conservation departments. Villages should be made clean by carrying out regular sanitation drive.

Singh said that PM Modi is working to double the income of farmers to ensure that the farmers get the right price for the crops. Chief minister Yogi Adityanath has launched various schemes for the betterment of the farmers. Scientific, as well as organic farming, should be promoted in view of the change in climatic conditions.

To serve their parents after arriving at home, maintain good behaviour with their wives and daughters, give good education to their children and to not indulge in any dispute in their villages, are the five mantras advised by Jal Shakti Minister to the farmers.
