By Correspondent

AGARTALA, Feb 24 - Asserting that welfare of farmers is on the priority of the BJP-IPFT Government, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday said Tripura Government has been working to fulfill the promises given to the people.

�The government wants to make Tripura a wealthy State by boosting farming sector and its stakeholders. Since the State�s economy is mainly agrarian, we are leaving no stone unturned to make the farmers happy�, he said.

The Chief Minister was speaking after launching Prime Minister Kishan Samman Yojana (PM-KISAN) in the State at a programme in Rabindra Bhavan here.

�Prime Minister Narendra Modi has introduced the welfare scheme Kishan Samman Nidhi Scheme (PM-KISHAN) for the welfare of farmers. In our State, 4.50 lakh farmers will be benefited. The State Government has taken all steps to make it a grand success�, he said.

The Prime Minister has been working for doubling the income of farmers by 2020 and PM-KISHAN is aimed at achieving this, he said, adding the scheme will ensure each small farmer gets Rs 6,000 in a year in three installments.

The Chief Minister said, �Under the scheme, the Centre will spend Rs 75,000 crore each fiscal.�

Coming down heavily on the Left Front, Deb alleged it was the Marxists who did injustice to the farmers for long years. �We are determined to bring good days for the farmers and there will be no discrimination when it comes to PM-KISHAN�, he added.
