Draft agriculture policy, Cong's Kamat tells Goa govt

Press Trust of India  |  Panaji 

Demanding that Goa government draft an agriculture policy to help marginal farmers, Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat on Tuesday said wrong policies may lead to farmers' suicides.

He was speaking in the Assembly on demands for grants on Agriculture department.

"There should be proper agricultural policy for Goa. The government should protect interests of marginal farmers. If we don't improve their condition, then Goa will also face a situation like Maharashtra where farmers are committing suicide," he said.

"Whenever there is a natural calamity, a pittance is paid to them. The young generation will get attracted towards farming only when the produce fetches a handsome price," he said.
