GS Mann; Ranjita Mehta (BJP) with Shamsher Singh Anchor of Khabarfast About New Policy of Release of Tubewell Connections along with Micro Irrigation Systems rider for areas where Water Table is deeper than 100 feet & all Dark Zones.
In this debate I have spoken in non-political terms and also mentioned the need for GM crops for diversification, environmental impact, the role of NGT, environmental laws. Also mentioned Vision of Former PM Sh. Atal Bihari Vajpayee. The impact of urban non-agriculture tube wells is significant in groundwater depletion. The complications of micro-irrigation system their initial cost and maintenance cost why they are not suitable for all kinds of crops. A farmer called up in the show and said input subsidies are tilted to favour the Industry more than the farmers. (Be it Fertilizer, Solar Systems or other FARM MACHINES, EQUIPMENT etc.)
BJP Spokesperson Ms Ranjita Mehta and Shamsher Singh (Khabarfast) agreed with several points.
