Must awaited central Govt. relief announcement of done union Agri. Minister Sharad Pawar of Rs.922 crore has added fuel to the agrarian crisis as this is toll little to compensate the huge losses of crop and properties ,will increase despair and distress as all announcements are turning out to be hoax for example in August Maharashtra Chief Minister announced Rs.2000 crore relief aid but till date nothing has been released more over local administration is shamelessly is Rs.80 to Rs.100 relief cheque rubbing the salt on the wounds of dying farmers who lost complete crop, home and cattle as there are more than 3 million flood effected farmers and others hence it is obvious this aid is peanut hence vidarbha farmers and farmers widows will observe “Black Diwali” to press demands compensation to tune of actual losses ,higher support price for cotton and soybean i.e. @ Rs.6000/ quintal and @5000/quintal,Kishore Tiwari of Vidarbha Janandolan Samiti (VJAS) informed today, urging Indian Govt. provide aid to tackle very pathetic situation as state Govt. failed to give any healing touch to dying farming community which is crying for food, medicine and relief aid” Tiwari said.
Vidarbha where more than million acres of land has been eroded and crop lost amounting more than Rs.20,000 crore but announced relief by centre and state for Vidarbha is merge Rs.2800 crore which is too less to repair damaged roads and bridges on a large scale and need urgent repairs and will need more money for property damage compensation hence massive crop damages are likely to ignored as final assessment report of state govt. has not been submitted and farmers are crying for help, Tiwari said
Earlier too when Indian Prime Minister Dr.Manmohan Singh visited vidarbha on 1st July 2006 for announcing vidarbha relief package of Rs.3750 and he told the farm widows that his visit to give healing touch to distressed farmers but all promises given by him went in vain and complete relief package followed by farm loan waiver failed to address the farm suicide issue failed miserably and his so called ‘Healing Touch’ has given more pain and despair now Indian Agriculture minister Sharad Pawar has announced relief package after three day “Farm suicide tourism” in September 2013 with same slogan that his tour is not political one and he is visiting flood hit region to give healing touch to dying farmers but farmers are requesting him not to rub the salt to their wounds by giving to promises and creating rosy picture as it’s trigger more suicide as when PM promise of farm credit ,direct aid and restoration to sustainable agriculture and livelihood of agrarian community turned to be hoax, Tiwari said. ,
