With the farmers' stir in Uttar Pradesh showing no signs of abating, Chief Minister Mayawati on Friday suggested a slew of measures to concerned officials to increase the income of the farming community including giving a special impetus to milk production.

"The income of farmers should be increased by giving special impetus to milk production, animal husbandry, pisciculture, sericulture and horticulture sector", Mayawati said while directing officials to provide adequate prices to the farmers for their produce.

Laxity in providing the agricultural inputs to the farmers would not be tolerated, she said adding that an action plan should be prepared to ensure completion of large irrigation projects at the earliest.

She said that the pending irrigation projects should be completed on priority basis and ordered high level inquiry into the corruption charges levelled in the renovation work of the sports hostel.

"Officers should also ensure that problems of the people are solved on priority basis and schemes launched for the welfare of poor people should be completed in a time bound manner so that the poor got its full benefit", Mayawati said.

While directing to take stern action against land grabbers, Mayawati directed that illegal lease holders should be ousted and the eligible persons should be restored the possession.
