Bhupesh Baghel said that if the peasant laborers of the country will be strong, then the country will be strong, if they are weak then the country will also be weak. Chhattisgarh has worked to bring money in the pockets of farmers, laborers and poor, that is why Chhattisgarh remained untouched by the recession.
In a program organized on the birth anniversary of Bhau Saheb Thorrat, the freedom fighter fighter and the pioneer of the cooperative movement in Sangamner, Maharashtra, and former Union Minister Anna Saheb Shinde, remembered for his contribution to the Green Revolution, CM Baghel told the story of the prosperity of the farmers of the state . The Chief Minister said that there is no government of the whole world, which buys cow dung. But we are buying cow dung for two rupees a kg. Now people are buying motorcycles by selling dung, taking air trips. Those who do not have land or animals, they are also collecting dung and earning income. Giving the example of Sukhram Yadav of Raigad, he said that he has earned Rs 96 thousand in four months by collecting cow dung.
The central government launched paint made of cow dung. Before leaving for Nagpur on Wednesday, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel took a dig at BJP leaders over the cow dung paint. He said that this cow dung has fallen on the mouth of those who questioned the Godan justice scheme. If the central government wants to buy cow dung from farmers, then there is a whole system of procurement in Chhattisgarh. So far more than 32 lakh tonnes of cow dung has been purchased from us. If the central government buys cow dung at five rupees per kilogram, that’s good. This will provide an additional income of Rs 3 per kg to the committees.
