Centre will soon address farmers' concerns to end stir: Javadekar
Union minister Prakash Javadekar today said the Centre will soon address the concerns of the agitating farmers and declare remunerative support prices for agricultural products to end their stir.
The Centre is pursuing pro-poor, pro-people policies and has undertaken several schemes worth crores of rupees which cover farmers and weaker sections, besides women, he said.
"When remunerative support prices for agri products are declared, the farmers will realise that the NDA government cared for them and the stir will end," Javadekar told a press meet here to highlight the achievement during the four years of the Modi government.

"Our's is a democracy and we don't object to anyone agitating... I don't wish to ascribe motives behind the farmers' agitation. The people will see for themselves and respond. The people will understand that when we will come up with a long-term solution to their issues," the HRD minister said in response to a question.
His comments came in response to queries on the 10-day protest called by several farmers' organisations in 22 states of the country demanding remunerative prices for their produce, implementation of the Swaminathan Commission recommendations and farm loan waivers among others.
Javadekar also said farmers' issues were addressed during the tenure of Atal Bihari Vajpayee and by the Modi government.
