Through Rajiv Gandhi Kisan Yojana and Godhan Nyay Yojana, the state government is making consistent efforts to improve the financial condition of people in rural areas, he added.
The Chief Minister further hit out at the Centre over recently passed farms bills by the Parliament, saying that these three laws are "not in the larger interest of farmers" and common people as these would "adversely affect" the livelihood of farmers, agricultural labourers and common people. "Hoarding, contract farming and private mandi system will only cause harm," he said.
During the recently concluded monsoon session of Parliament, the two Houses passed Farmer's Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020 and Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020.
A bill to amend the Essential Commodities Act was also passed.
