Union Agriculture & Farmers Welfare Minister Shri Radha Mohan Singh on 6th March 2019 kick-started an initiative known as ‘Kisan Ki Mann Ki Baat’ in order to take suggestions from the cultivators to improve the agriculture sector in the next five years.

The first round of discussion was held in the national capital, New Delhi with farmers of 6 states including neighboring Uttar Pradesh.

The participating farmers as well as agri-institutes have submitted their suggestions in a written format. The minister also informed that a similar talk will be held with cultivators of other states also.

The agriculture minister told reporters that “The suggestions that we have got today will be uploaded on the portal. It is for the first time such an initiative is being organised”.

Farmers from all over India have been asked to give their suggestions to the Agriculture Ministry. The suggestions will be collected by 10th March 2019 and it will be incorporated in the BJP’s election manifesto, Singh said.

He added that the purpose behind this exercise is to determine what farmers actually hope and want from the government in the next 5 years and also to ensure the agriculture sector improves.
