Agriculture, Farmers’ Well-Being Govt’s Top Priority: Agriculture Min Shivraj Singh Chouhan

New Delhi: In his first press conference, newly appointed Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Saturday highlighted the central government’s dedication to agriculture and farmers, calling their service an act of worship. Emphasizing agriculture’s vital role in India’s socio-economic landscape, Chouhan noted it as the largest employment sector in the country.

Chouhan praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s unwavering commitment to farmers’ welfare. On June 18, in Varanasi, PM Modi will initiate his third term by disbursing the 17th installment of the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi to nearly nine crore farmers’ bank accounts.

During his first four days in office, Chouhan conducted extensive reviews of all departments under the Agriculture and Rural Development ministries. He outlined an ambitious 100-day agenda in line with the Prime Minister’s directives to address key issues in these sectors.

“Prime Minister Modi has consistently prioritised agriculture and farmers’ well-being over the past decade,” Chouhan affirmed, acknowledging the PM’s dedicated initiatives for agricultural welfare. The former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister stressed the essential role of agriculture in achieving the vision of a ‘Viksit Bharat’ (Developed India).
