Government has looked for confirmation of this information. I comprehended that the centre was attempting to politicize the issue. We additionally understood that farmers ought to endure along these lines and I have requested that the centre pass on the information so we can begin the verification cycle," she said.

PM-Kisan scheme supports a pay of Rs 6,000 every year in three equivalent portions is given to the small and marginal farmer families. The CM also added that she needs farmers to get all conceivable assistance, notwithstanding the help being given out by her administration.
