Farm sector in distress under BJP government: Rohit Shukla 12.12.2017 DNA: India
Members of the Lokshahi Bachavo Abhiyan on Monday alleged that the condition of agriculture and farmers under the BJP government in Gujarat is in a dismay. Talking to mediapersons, Abhiyan member and an economist Rohit Shukla claimed that though agriculture and its ancillary fields are the largest employment generating sector in Gujarat, the farmers’ condition is pathetic as the government is focussed on industrialisation. “The average monthly income of the farming family is Rs6,426 only. On one hand, input cost is increasing and agricultural products are fetching lower prices and on the other hand the Minimum Support Price (MSP) is not enough to meet the cost. The Swaminathan Committee had suggested minimum support price should be based on input cost plus 50 percent amount,” he said. Citing an example he alleged that the present government is anti-farmer. “If a farmer is having his field near an irrigation canal and if the water level increases in the well on the field, the farmer is liable to pay water ...

Gujarat elections 2017 | I am still your own Narendrabhai: PM Modi 11.12.2017 DNA: Popular News
After the first phase of polling ended on Saturday with around 68 percent of the electorate casting votes, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed four rallies in North and Central Gujarat which go to polls in the second and final phase on December 14. Modi addressed rallies in Palanpur, Sanand, Kalol and Vadodara. At around 11.45 am, the PM reached Palanpur in his helicopter and addressed a huge gathering. "Did you miss me or not? Though I have become the PM, I am still your own Narendrabhai. Those who have raised questions over my origin and caste have not only insulted Gujarat but the post of the Prime Minister," he said. Lashing out at Rahul Gandhi, the PM said, "He thinks vegetable farming happens in the factory. He doesn't know the hard work a farmer has to put in." The PM said if the BJP government wins the election, it will turn Banaskanta into a transportation hub of India in next five years. He also said that Pakistan was interfering in Gujarat polls, and sought an explanation from the ...

In Gujarat, growth didn't create jobs 10.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
Providing productive jobs with decent earnings to all has to be a major goal of any development model. Productive employment not only enables households to access necessary goods and services, it also gives them dignity and self-esteem. Unfortunately, Gujarat has done poorly in this aspect, despite the high rate of growth of its economy. Gujarats economy has taken a big jump in its growth rate since 2002-03. However, it viewed productive employment as a by-product of growth, and assumed that growth would create adeq ­uate jobs for all. The ambition of the state government has been to make Gujarat the fastest growing regional economy in Asia. It has hence focused on improving governance and infrastructure (both for the corporate sector) and has offered unprecedented subsidies and incentives to Indian and foreign investors. In order to make Gujarat the most attractive centre for corporate investment, the government also invited highly capital intensive state-of-the-art technologies. Though these steps made ...
