Greater Noida:

Crop insurance scheme is being planned by the Centre and once out, it would be welcomed by farmers all over the country, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said.

The Home Minister was speaking at the closing ceremony of two-day BJP Kisan Morcha meet.

He also appealed to the BJP workers to make farmers aware about “BJP’s farmers-friendly policies”.

The Union minister also paid respect to former Prime Minister Chaudhary Charan Singh and farmer leader Mahindra Singh Tikait.

He said it was for the first time that 99 per cent family accounts have been opened in which money worth over Rs 27,000 crores has been deposited under the Prime Minister Jan Dhan Yojana.

Hitting out at Congress, he said the opposition party had not thought of bringing low interest loan scheme for farmers.  He said it was only Atal Behari Vajpee government which had thought about this and executed the plan during his tenure.
