Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday took stock of the damage caused by hailstorm at Prithvipur in Niwari district and Mungawali in Ashoknagar district. During this, the CM said that the farmers should not be disturbed and assured all possible help.
During the observation of the hailstorm affected areas in Bhajawan of district Ashoknagar, seeing the farmer's wife crying, assured her. The CM said that in such circumstances where there has been a terrible loss to the farmer and there is a marriage of the daughter, then we will make arrangements for that too, so that there is no problem in the marriage of the daughter. Farmer brother, don't worry about it at all. I am telling the officers directly that the survey of crop damage should be done honestly. If you have to write more than one or two percent compensation, then write it. If I write less then I will not be able to do the job. We stand with the farmer brothers in the hour of crisis.
CM Chouhan said that this time we have done crop insurance in a different way. The insurance company will have to pay 25% of the loss, which will be assessed later. Rest 75% will be given after completion of assessment. Those who have suffered losses, the short term loan will be converted into a medium term loan by postponing the recovery of the loan and we will also pay the interest for it. Farmers don't worry. 30 thousand rupees for cow-buffalo and 10 thousand rupees for calf and heifer and God forbid that any person should die, but on such untimely death, financial assistance of 4 lakh rupees will be given to the family. The amount of crop insurance will be given separately.
Shivraj said that I know that farmer brothers work hard day and night, blood and sweat together. Taking loans, they fertilize, sow seeds. We irrigate crops not only with water alone, but also with sweat. Then the grains of food come and they run our children and our lives. Farmers who have suffered more than 50 percent loss, will be given relief at the rate of Rs 30,000 per hectare. Don't worry farmer brother.
