Respected Prime Ministerji
The condition of farmers in our country is pathetic with their income less than Rs.6000 per month and they are unable to eke out even a subsistence living and unable to educate their children. The vagaries of monsoon, lack of institutional credit, marketing and storage facilities, spurious seeds and pesticides have made matters worse for them.
You were kind enough to promise them in your election manifesto that you would raise the minimum support price (MSP) to farmers produce to 1.5 times their input cost. The Dr MS Swaminathan Commission has also recommended enhancing the MSP to more than 1.5 times the input cost.
But to our utter disappointment, this has not happened even after 3 years of your triumphant win in the elections.
Unless the prime recommendation of Dr Swaminathan Commission is accepted, the plight of the farmers is bound to deteriorate further with number of farmers committing suicide daily in several parts of the country.
Hence we earnestly request you to raise the MSP to at least 1.5 times the input cost and save our bread winners from the vicious cycle of poverty and allow them to live honourable lives.
