Press Trust of India  |  Mathura 

today accused the BJP of "doing nothing" for farmers and held it responsible for their "worsening condition".

On one side, the BJP says it will increase the income of farmers, however, in practice nothing is being done to save from their deteriorating condition," Chaudhary told a Kisan Akrosh Panchayat' at Morki Inter College, some 70 kms from here.

He demanded changes in the existing rules of scheme. "The crop being damaged by stray cows should be included in the scheme," he added.

He alleged, the state and Union governments have paid Rs 20,374 crore in the Agriculture Welfare Cell under the head as its premium, however, hardly 4,000 crores have been given to as compensation. The rest has become the income of companies, he alleged.
