    Why not a separate budget for farmers plight ? Any takers !

    Why not a separate budget for farmers plight ? Any takers ! Over the past few days the unrest of the farmers across the country has taken worst turn. First it was Tamil Nadu farmers who sat on the strike for over 40 days to show their resentment on not giving MSP on varied farm products. Then it was Mirchi farmers of Guntur who literally ransacked the Agriculture market yard for being indifferent to their plight. And now Maharastra farmers damaged their own crop on the road to express their displeasure. All these can be tackled with a separate budget for farming community. Any takers ?

    Separate budget for farmers' plight! How is it possible? Now the rail budget has been merged with general budget and the author wants separate budget for farmers! I think the author wants separate budget head for the welfare of farmers. That can be dome, but actual welfare depends on various aspect like fertilizer, irrigation, crop insurance, electricity, environment and various other aspects which come under the aegis of different Ministries/Departments. So, even if separate budget head is provided for farmers, question will arise regarding the responsibility of a specific Ministry/Department who will disburse the fund.
    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.
