The Government has organised Kisan Kalyan Karyashala at the block level across the country today. The workshops are part of Gram Swaraj Abhiyan, a rural-centric campaign that started on the 14th of last month, the birth anniversary of Dr BR Ambedkar. It will end on Saturday.
During workshops, farmers from each block will be interacting with agriculture officers and scientists to discuss ways to increase their income through adoption of new technology.
Awareness campaigns and training programmes will disseminate information about steps for doubling the farmers’ income by 2022 and other measures taken by the NDA government for their welfare.
Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh has written to MPs asking them to attend one of the farmer workshops in their constituencies.
