Mandya: Maintaining that the NDA Government at the Centre led by PM Narendra Modi had spent almost double on organic farming than what the UPA Government did in its 10-year rule, BJP National President Amit Shah said here yesterday that the Union Government had developed 7.50 lakh hectares under its traditional farming scheme over the past three years.
Shah was addressing organic and women farmers at Sir M. Visvesvaraya Stadium in the Sugar Town yesterday. Pointing out that India takes pride in being recognised as an organic farming nation, Shah said that PM Modi was taking steps to promote organic farming even on hilly terrains.
Noting that the Centre was working on making Sikkim, a North-Eastern State, as a complete organic farming State, the BJP National President stressed on the importance of organic farming and exerted the farmers to come up with innovative methods of farming to drastically cut farm costs. Earlier, Shah apologised to the gathering for arriving late for the meet.
BJP State President and former CM B.S. Yeddyurappa, in his address, said that the BJP will push for a revolution of sorts in organic farming if voted to power.
