PROMISE MADE : Rs 1 crore financial assistance and government job

“The Chief Minister emphasised that the martyrdom of a farmer signifies a profound and irreparable loss for the family, one that no compensation can alleviate.” However, he said that Rs 1 crore financial assistance and government job to the family is a humble initiative of the state government to bail out the family in crisis.

“Bhagwant Singh Mann praised this humble gesture by the state government, recognizing the supreme sacrifice made by the young farmer for the cause of food growers across the country.”

The Chief Minister further said that the hard working and resilient farmers of the state have made the country self-reliant in food production due to which all the countrymen are indebted to them. He bemoaned that it is on record that despite our limited natural resources, the farmers of the state have put their sweat and toil to produce grains for the country that too at the cost of overexploitation of the only available natural resources of the state in terms of water level and soil fertility.

Bhagwant Singh Mann said that it is the bounden duty of the government to help the farmers and their families in the hour of crisis adding that the state government is already making strenuous efforts in this regard.
