Rural distress: crop insurance scheme is a big fraud !

Narendra Modi promise to double farm incomes by 2022 is completely off target. At last count, farm incomes have grown only at 5% or less over the last four years. At this rate, doubling farm incomes could take more than 14 years.
It took you four years to even make the claim that you will deliver on your campaign promise of an MSP for farmers that is cost plus 50%. But across the country, farmers are forced to sell their crops at less than MSP. They say the crop insurance scheme you announced is a big fraud – they pay premiums but do not get the benefit.
Your government’s attitude towards the farm sector has triggered some of the largest kisan agitations we have seen in recent years.
