Bhilai, Mar 06: State Government is constantly working towards increasing irrigation facilities for farmers. The government is committed to promote farming and the government has initiated several schemes in the interests of farmers, said Legislative Affairs, Agriculture and Bio Technology, Animal Husbandry, Fisheries, Ayacut and Water Resources Minister Ravindra Choubey while addressing a gathering at Navagaon – Purda after performing bhoomipujan for construction of Anicut cum Causeway. This structure to promote irrigation will be constructed at a cost of Rs 3.82 crore.
Agriculture Minister said that under the leadership of Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, several plans have been made by the Government of Chhattisgarh in the interest of farmers and its direct impact on agriculture is visible now. Due to debt waiver and providing appropriate price of paddy, several people have returned back to farming. This is evident from the record paddy purchase done this year.
Through the Rajiv Gandhi Kisan Nyay Yojana, funds were given to the farmers at a time when they were in need for agricultural work. Economic opportunities for cattle rearers were also increased through the Godhan Nyaya Yojana. The path towards organic farming will also be opened through the Godhan Nyaya Yojana.
The Agriculture Minister added that many works are being done to promote the interests of farmers in Dhamdha region. Significant works are being done, especially with the view of expanding irrigation facilities. Choubey said that work is being done to recharge the ground water through the Narva scheme. Increasing the level of ground water will be of great benefit to the farmers and will help them in taking multiple crops in a year.
Choubey also distributed various items to the beneficiaries of several schemes. Public representatives and officials of concerned department were present. Agriculture Minister also performed Bhoomipujan of the Daniya Evacuation Irrigation Scheme. This project will be completed with a cost of Rs 7.71 crores.
