Addressing the 42nd Mann ki Baat programme, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday touched upon the issues of MSP for farmers and his government’s aim towards “affordable and accessible” healthcare. Modi, who has set a target of doubling farmers’ income by 2022, said work was underway on reforming the agriculture market. “Work is underway to reform the agriculture market and to connect wholesale market with the global market to ensure the farmers get the right price for their crops,” the PM said.

The PM’s remarks come days after farmers across Maharashtra staged a huge rally, demanding loan waivers and implementation of recommendations made by the Swaminathan Committee report that asserts farmers should be paid one and a half times the cost of production. “Lot of farmers wrote to me on MSP. In the Budget, it has been decided that for notified crops, MSP of atleast 1.5 times will be given,” he said.
