Under the Deendayal Upadhyaya Antyodaya Parivar Suraksha Yojana (DAYALU), he also released financial assistance of over 131 crore to the bank accounts of 3,527 eligible beneficiaries, in a programme held in Bhiwani, reiterating the state government’s commitment to ensure welfare of farmers and weaker sections.

The CM said that the previous Congress government gave only 1,100 crore as crop damage compensation to Haryana farmers during its 10 year-rule, while the BJP-led government has given 12,500 crore in the last nine-and-a-half years.

“When Bhupinder Singh Hooda was CM, farmers were given cheques of 2 and 5 as compensation. In contrast, our double-engine government provides cheques of 30,000, 40,000, and 50,000 for crop damage due to natural disasters,” said Saini, adding that Prime Minister Narendra Modi always thinks about the welfare of the poor, farmers, and marginalised sections.
