Chief Minister Mr. Baghel said that soon after the formation of the government, it was decided to first waive off the loans of farmers and purchase paddy at the rate of 25 hundred rupees. The peasants of the state came out of debt. Trade in Chhattisgarh gained momentum due to loan waiver and purchase of paddy on support price. Positive impact was seen from the bullion market to the automobile sector. Sales of tractors and agricultural implements increased. The Chief Minister said that the number of farmers in the state has increased by one and a half times in the last two years. This is the result of farmer friendly policies and programs of our government.

The Chief Minister said that the Chhattisgarh Government’s farmer-friendly policies are getting favorable results. He said that earlier farmers used to sell paddy and buy motor cycles. In Chhattisgarh state, now cattle rearers have started buying motorcycles by selling cow dung. This has been made possible by the Government of Chhattisgarh’s Godhan Nyaya Yojana. He said that in view of the benefits arising out of selling cow dung under the Godan Nyaya Yojana, people have started serving Gaumata.

Chief Minister said that the government of Chhattisgarh is the government of Janata Janardan. Our resolve is to serve Chhattisgarh Mahtari.
