Statesman News Service | Chandigarh |

Haryana Chief Minister (CM), Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday said to benefit farmers in the state, ‘Gobardhan Yojana’ has been launched to provide for the sale of organic manure and cow urine.

Addressing villagers at ‘Kisan Samman Samaroh’ organised in Nizampur village of Sonipat district on Monday, the Gobardhan Yojana would help in doubling the income of farmers and next time, Minimum Support Price (MSP) would be given with additional benefit of 50 per cent more than the cost of production.

Appreciating the Union Budget, the Chief Minister said it met the expectations, hopes and aspirations of the people.

Lashing out at the Opposition, he said the previous government kept talking about implementing the Swaminathan Commission report, but never did so. It is the present Union government which has done it.

Loans at affordable rates are being provided to the farmers and four per cent rate of interest was being borne by the state government. Today, the Opposition parties have no issue to rake up, he added.
