She said that earlier there was an impression that the BJP was limited to the business community, but it was with the effort of leaders like Sangwan that the party’s message got across to the farmers.
She said that while Minimum Support Price (MSP) for wheat in the country was `1350, it was only BJP governed Madhya Pradesh which offered `150 bonus over the crop price to farmers. Similarly, it was only Chattisgarh government which gave `200 bonus on paddy crops to farmers.
Taking a dig on the state government, former Naidu said that the Congress government was offering `1310 MSP of paddy crop to farmers, while investment on the crop is `1560.
He added that the mismatch between the investment and MSP for crop was the primary reason that had pushed farmers to the brink of poverty.
